"VOX POPULI"


This issue of FLORIDA REVIEW is devoted to a
few of the many thousands of letters which come
annually to the Department of Agriculture. We
print them because of the human interest attaching
to them, and, more than this, because they show
what people know, and don't know, and want to
know about Florida.
It would be difficult for one who has not experi-
enced it to realize the variety of these letters, the
diversity of questions asked and the task imposed
upon those who answer them. Surely, people every-
where have read and literally applied the scriptural
injunction, "Ask and it shall be given unto you."
These letters come to us from every quarter of the
globe. We have them from Africa, Spain, Palestine,
the Philippines, Holland, England, France, Russia,
Italy, Austria, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Peru,
Canal Zone, Mexico, Honduras, Argentina, in fact
from practically every nation, race, color, creed and
climate under the sun.
Some of these letters bring a smile. A citizen of
the Philippines wrote "that her baby chickens were
afflicted with some strange and deadly ailment-
would the Department of Agriculture kindly send
at once a Chicken Doctor over from the United
States of America to treat them?" Several have
written that they were born in Florida and would
deeply appreciate it if we would start an investiga-
tion to determine the exact hour, date and place
where this important event occurred.
A recent letter suggested a wonderful way to
start another "land boom" in Florida. This writer
had a relation who owned "right smart" land in
the state. Now, if the Department would only put up
the money to pay this relative a "big price" for part
of her holdings, the effect would be the immediate
"sky-rocketing" of land prices all over the state.
Still another individual from Canada, afflicted
with "domestic infelicity" and yearning for greater
liberty, wrote to know if he could invest in Florida
and sell his holdings without having his wife join
him in making the deed.
Every imaginable request on practically all sub-
jects comes to the Bureau of Immigration. Folks


deluge us with questions about Florida products,
and non-Florida products as well. We have letters
asking about satsumas, grape-fruit, chayotes, tam-
arinds, carissa, roselle, kumquat, loquats, limequats,
orangequats, pomegranates, shaddocks, guavas, co-
coanuts, mangoes, avacadoes, tangelos, lemons, figs,
limes, peppermint, the Surinam cherry, papayas, pec-
tin, passion fruit, etc.
Still others write to know if they can success-
fully produce, on a commercial basis, mushrooms,
frogs, snails, ferns, silk worms, bulbs, sisal, tung
oil, squabs, bees, rubber, coffee and ginseng.
Ambitious live stock husbandmen call for data
covering the possibilities of growing cattle, hogs,
sheep, goats, guinea pigs, alligators, muskrats,
gophers, ground hogs, beaver, otter, weasels, and
skunks.
Prospective immigrants from other lands send for
details as to naturalization, immigration laws and
visas to expedite their pilgrimage.
Citizens of other states, eager to become Florid-
ians, ask about Homestead Laws, canals, lakes, rain-
fall, sunstrokes and frost lines. Hundreds appear
willing to settle in the center of the Everglades and
take chances on its being drained.
Another element want to know about our phos-
phate beds, ceramic clays, limestone deposits, our
sponge, oyster and shrimp waters and our forest
areas.
As a matter of fact, the largest classes we hear
from are those who ask about the poultry-raising
and dairying possibilities of the state. If we may
judge by the number writing, these two industries
will have large development within the next few
years. Our opportunities in these lines are winning
attention everywhere.
Within the last year, we have replied to approxi-
mately 25,000 such queries. The eyes of the world
are upon Florida and the mind of the world is curi-
ous to learn about her. It is just about as certain
as human events can be that our state is going to
receive, with every passing year, more and more,
the world-wide recognition to which its wonderful
resources entitles it.

LINCOLN PARK PUBLIC SCHOOLS

DISTRICT NO. 5, ECORSE TOWNSHIP
Justin A. Morrison, Supt.

1128 Fort Park Blvd.
Lincoln Park, Detroit, Mich.,
Feb. 21, 1927.
Hon. Nathan B. Mayo,
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Fla.
Dear Sir:
I have been approached by a group of close friends to
join them in a growers' corporation to purchase and de-
velop a tract of semi-cleared timber land in Santa Rosa
County. It is located on a water shed in a triangular road
fork about 10 miles north of Milton.
While having all the confidence in the world in what my
friends say yet I have teachers and friends who will fol-
low me in investing and I wish to have some official in-
formation about the county and particular district with
which to assure them and myself. The human element in
this enterprise is reliable as all are reputable business
men of sound integrity. They are calling in a highly suc-
cessful farmer of that section to conduct actual operations
in cropping, harvesting and have excellent executives in
charge of promotion and sales.
I wish to ask if this part of Florida has the agricultural
resources to permit profitable development.
Does the soil have an all round fertility or must it be
specially fertilized for each crop as in certain sections of
the state?
What is the cost per acre for abandoned timber land in
large blocks-mostly uncleared? What is the cost
of clearing?
What are the most profitable crops for this section?
Is there a reliable and abundant farm labor supply?
Are there ready and easily accessible markets for farm
products?
I myself and several friends here have been practical
farmers and plan to make our homes there if the venture
proves good. We would like to know something about the
climate, schools, churches, taxes and other social conditions.
If you have a yearbook, bulletins or leaflets bearing on
these questions I should appreciate receiving them. If
some one else could better inform us please let me know
who they are.
Very truly,
JUSTIN A. MORRISON.

Gentlemen:
It is very important for us to have our files showing the
number of livestock and poultry by counties, as nearly up
to date as possible. Our latest figures are of several years
ago and we feel quite sure that you can now give us new
statistics made within the last few months or a year which
would be of great value to us.
What we particularly want is the number of hogs, dairy
cattle, other cattle, sheep, and poultry by counties.


Will you please furnish us with this information, or let
us know when you are expecting to get out new figures?
Yours very truly,

WANTED: SOMEONE TO PLOW A THOUSAND
ACRES
February 28, 1927.
Chicago, Ill.
Dept. of Agriculture, State of Florida,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Gentlemen:
In writing you, I am in hopes that you can give me some
information on the following:
Together with associates, I have some thousand acres
of farm lands located in Collier County, about 9 miles
southeast of the present terminus of the A. C. L. Ry., and
we are contemplating marketing in 5 and 10 acre parcels,
all planted subject to the buyer's desire.
Is it possible for your department to supply the name of
some party or concern with whom we could contract for
this breaking and planting work?
We can satisfy anyone regarding responsibility and are
anxious to make a contact at once. Will surely appreciate
early response with whatever assistance you can offer.
Respectfully,
C. C. KEMP.

CAN SQUABS BE RAISED IN FLORIDA AT A
PROFIT?

South-Highway,
Atfscadero, Calif.,
February 16th, 1927.
Department of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Dear Sirs:
Should this letter of inquiry be addressed to the wrong
department, will you kindly direct it into the proper office
and oblige.
Have you any literature you can send me on the raising
of squabs in Florida and do you know of any pigeon lofts
being operated on a commercial basis and where are they
located.
Do you know of any reason, climatic or otherwise, why
such an undertaking shouldn't be a success in your state?
I spent last winter there on the west coast, and am
desirous of returning to go into the pigeon business, if condi-
tions are favorable.
Does your government operate an experimental station
for instructing people, such as they have here in California?
Thanking you I remain,
Yours truly,
JOHN J. WEBSTER.

WHERE IS THE GROUND RED?

is "Red," I always fancied red ground. Thank you indeed.

ENGLISHMAN WANTS TO MOVE TO FLORIDA,
BUT CANNOT MEET IMMIGRATION
REQUIREMENTS

28 Leonard Avenue,
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada,
February 16th, 1927.
Dear Sir:
Will you put me in touch with some good poultry maga-
zine published in Florida and about Florida. My wife
and I have been thinking we would like to live in Florida
permanently providing we could see our way of earning a
respectable living. We cannot enter at present according
to the quota act of the U. S. A. government, being
born in England, although we have lived in Canada since
1905. I served in France with the Canadian Forces during
the war, but that does not alter the views of the American
authorities, as they allow anyone born in Canada to enter
the U. S. A. at anytime. I suppose the American Legion
of the U. S. A. War Veterans would not be able to help
matters. You see I would like to come to Florida, but the
quota order stands in the way at present. At the same
time put me in touch with Florida's climate in the way of
reading about it. Thanking you in advance I am,
Yours truly,
J. W. WHITTINGHAM.

Secretary of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Dear Sir:
Can your department send me printed matter covering
the soils of Florida and the farm crops suitable to the
various sections.
I am a northern greenhorn and I don't know a thing
about farming, but I want to learn about how to farm in
Florida, and buy a place here and stay.
Farming as I see it here means potatoes, celery and garden
truck.
One man tells me that there is big money earned by
truck farming and the next duck tells me it is the bunk,
how his brother sent a car of stuff north and owed for the
freight. Somebody lied, but I want to get some facts,
most of the stuff you get is wind.
Thanking you for any help you will give, I am,
Your very truly,
CARL F. MENSING.


MICHIGAN REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATION

From Executive Office, 214 United Building,

Lansing, Mich., February 8, 1927.
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
My dear Sir:
I am contemplating the purchase of some land west of
Ft. Pierce in St. Lucie county for development in raising
citrus fruit and winter vegetables.
I would like to secure all available printed information
to assist me in this project. I may say that they ask
$150.00 per acre for the undeveloped land and I would like
to get your opinion as to whether that price is considered
a fair one.
I would like to secure from you an estimate as to the
amount it will take to clear land and plant citrus trees and
bring up to the bearing period. There have been state-
ments made to the effect that Ft. Pierce had no frosts this
winter. If that is correct, it has a rather important bear-
ing on the investment and I would like to have you give me
the correct figures, both relative to the frost in January of
this year and to the other frost, which I believe occurred
in 1917.
Shall be very grateful for all available information.
Very truly yours,
JOHN A. DOLLE,
Executive Secretary.

Will you kindly send me any literature available on the
different types and classifications of Florida soils.
I hope (some day), to make your state my home, and
would like to know something of the agricultural possi-
bilities of the different sections before arrival, as it might
save much time and study later. Is it possible or advisable
to take a short course in agriculture at "Gainesville?"

ABOUT CROPS AND LAND

Dear Sir:
Will you kindly send me some information of your Farm
Land and climate in your state. What are the prices of
land, and what chance has a man to start farming if he
hasn't much money to start with. How much could a man
buy and build on with $1000. Can one start with that
much or not? Could a man borrow in the bank for
machinery, or stock, or is it all fruit and truck gardening.
What are the opportunities on 5 or 10 acre truck farms, and
price of same.

Dear Sir:
Living several years in the south and several years here
up north and out west could very well see which part of
the country has the advantage, I have decided then to
come to Florida, but as I never was in your state would
like to have a position as manager, foreman or herdsman
on some farm or rent a farm on shares for one or two
years before I would buy. I will not buy at present under
no consideration until I am one year in Florida.
Have only the very best of references, I am not afraid to
work, know cows, in fact all livestock from A to Z. Been
well trained with all modern farm machines. I know all
about soil and its workings and fertilization.
I am married and have five children, I am 40 years of
age, graduate of agricultural college of Switzerland. My
intention is to make my home somewhere down in Florida
and bring my children up to be good American citizens.
If you could help me would very much appreciate that. I
am making $2000 a year and everything free. Hoping to

I am quite interested in learning all I can relative to
the planting and growing of the Tung Oil Tree, which I
am informed your experimental station planted some eight
or ten years ago.
If you have issued any printed matter pertaining to the
success of this tree, I will be very glad of the opportunity
to read an account of the observations of the experimental
farm superintendent. I have owned land in the south for
a number of years and from what I have been able to learn,
in a general way, the Tung Oil producing tree would prob-

Dear Sir:
Hoping to be able soon to invest in a home in central o"
southern Florida, where I am trying to find a place that
will grow truck and other fruits as well as citrus fruit, I
am writing to beg copies of your bulletins that might be
useful in directing me how to succeed with the different
crops in that State.
I have in mind to locate either in Lake, Volusia, Marion,
Seminole, Orange or Polk County. If you have any printed
statistics concerning the products that are grown most
successfully in these counties respectively, I would
appreciate copies of the same, that is, if you have any for
distribution. Or, if you have these for sale, indicate the
price and I will be glad to send the cost.
It is reported here by travelers that the recent freeze
did considerable damage to both fruits and truck; but I
know such freezes do not come every year, and I am willing
to try my lot there, if I can find a desirable and healthful
place.
Any advice you may furnish that would aid me will be
duly appreciated. Yours very truly,
W. D. REID.

GENERAL INFORMATION WANTED

To Whom it May Concern:
I am requested to give a lesson for a little club in the
near future and Florida has been assigned my subject. 1
want some late and reliable information about this great
rival of Californias. I don't know where to look for it,
so I'm writing to ask if you can supply it or tell me where
I may obtain it.

Gentlemen
I want to come to Florida. We are poultry farmers and
want to move south, you can sympathize with that desire
better if I say that as I look out my window I see 20 inches
of snow on the level-the thermometer now 10:30 a. m.,
8 below zero, at 5:30 a. m. it was 21 degrees below. I
have not seen the ground since November 28.
Will you send me bulletins on poultry keeping, housing,
diseases, feeding, rearing chicks, etc., that I may find
wherein your methods differ from my own. Will you also
send data showing cost of feeds and prices received (whole-
sale) for eggs, also for broilers, roasters and fowl. Any
suggestion as to approximate net income derived from 1000
layers. Just what the markets are, the price I must expect
to pay for land where I can have good markets, good
water in full supply and electricity.
My idea has been near St. Petersburg, and near the
gulf coast, where breezes will be found during the hot
season.
Water, is that obtainable in all seasons? That is on land
dry enough for poultry. I also want to raise everything
in line of fruit and vegetables for home use, so want soil
moist enough for that.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Yours truly,

the desired information.
Anything at all that would give me some idea as to what
these forests are like would be sincerely appreciated.

Will you please send us "post haste" any report you
care to make as to the success of the advertising plan
adopted by the state of Florida and its community.
Our reason for so requesting this information is we are

BLUEBERRIES
My dear Sir:
I have been solicited to become interested in blueberries
as they are now being grown in your section of West
Florida. The representations to me present a most glow-
ing account of the possibilities of this recently discovered
bush and berry. I feel much interested.
As no great deal has been written and published upon
the blueberry, its demands of habitation and culture, I
have been referred to you who have personal knowledge of
the recent successes and possible future place of this bush
and fruit in the southeast, as one who would advise me
both personally and as to publications that have been issued
on the subject. I will thank you for any information,
printed or otherwise, that you may have on this subject.
There are a number of other officers stationed at this
Garrison who are likewise interested, and I shall be very
glad to give the information wide circulation.
Awaiting your early favor, I am,

invest in orange groves in Citrus county and tells me if
I do, I can make "millions." I don't know whether he
means dollars, or mistakes, but "million" seems to be the
principal word in the vocabulary of a Floridian. If you
have any literature that would inform one about orange
and orange growing in Florida, I would appreciate it. I
know something about snow balls and codfish, but oranges
and citrus fruit means something to eat, or mix with a
New England product B. V. (before Volstead) and make a
splendid drink.

Tallahassee, Florida, U. S.
Sirs:
Reading in the Venice News that you answer questions
to prospective residents, would ask a few. At the same
time would ask to please excuse the enclosed stamps as
American stamps are hard to get hold of here.
I have an idea that I would like to locate in Florida but
I am no farmer so am at a disadvantage to start and
the trade I am educated in is practically no use in your
state as steel or iron manufacturing is a back number
except in Pensacola. Can you tell me if they have use for
"pattern makers" in the U. S. Navy Yard there. I am
U. S. citizen, came here with a large American firm but
think it about time to get back to God's country. Why I
have not before this is the reason why I am writing you
for information.
What are the laws in Florida in regard to dower rights
to land of man and wife?
This may seem queer to you but I will tell why I ask
the same. I have property here value about $7500 in a
home, a vacant lot value about $2400., a lot in the States
value about $380. I have wanted to sell these and go to
the States for several years. I could have sold the lots
many times, have never tried to sell the home. The wife
will not sell, so I am tied here and the lots are eating me
up and have been for years.
If I should locate in Florida can I in any way hold
property so that I can dispose of the same regardless of
the wife or would I be barred. In California I can, as they
have Community Laws. Or could I buy property, pay for the
same except a small amount and leave deed subject to sale
regardless of wife?
This is to be the question as to whether I go to California
or Florida, as I am not going to be caught the second time.
Please give me all information you- can about Venice, as
to carpenters wages, etc., as I could make a living at that.
Also as to what can a man do in Poultry. Also does
agriculturalist make a good living in Florida. Please excuse
questions as I know I am asking some queer ones, but
necessity is the cause.

Mr. Nathan Mayo,
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
My dear Mr. Mayo:
I must thank you for the interesting books, map, and
booklets that you have sent me and that I have read very
carefully. I am already established here in Miami. I
bought an interest in section 32, near Hialeah and expect
to do cultivation in big scale, this winter, as soon as the
water goes out of the place, that is now all flooded. The
books that you sent me decided me to stay here in Florida
and try to produce winter vegetables.
I was so enthusiastic about the interesting books that
you sent me, that I wrote a long letter to my friend Mr.
Ricardo Jimenez, President of the Republic of Costa Rica,
Central America, and now he writes me asking me if it is
not possible to get these books for the use of the agricultural
office in Costa Rica. The climates of Florida and Costa
Rica are very similar; the problems more or less the same,
the aspect of the land is similar to the aspect of the land
in my country; so I am going to make you a solicitude that
I think is the first of this class that you have received in
your office: I ask you, very respectfully, to do me the
service of sending Mr. Ricardo Jimenez, President of Costa
Rica, the books and pamphlets which I will mention else-
where in this letter.
The address is:
Exmo. Ricardo Jimenez,
President of the Republic,
San Jose,
Costa Rica. C. A.
The president of Costa Rica will see that the knowledge
that is contained in the books of your Department be
diffused in our country by the means of the Department of
Agriculture; and then the books relating to Florida will be
very useful for the rich farmers and capitalists in our
country who will see the opportunity of coming to this
country to make profitable investments and at the same
time to have their children educated in the Florida schools,
colleges and universities.
I know that your office is not supposed to give free the
publications to other countries, that you devote all of your
time to the promotion of the prosperity of Florida. But
at the same time I know the American character, the
altrustic feelings of this people and I am sure that you
will do what I ask you, knowing that you are going to do
a valuable service to a little and friendly country. Mr.
Jimenez will write you as soon as he receives the books.
With very many thanks I am very truly yours,

Gentlemen:
I am anxious to get some information on conditions and
prospects in your State on horticultural and agricultural
prospects. I do not know now the proper title for Depart-
ment to address or to what point but writing as above
expecting this will eventually get to the right place.
In what line of horticulture do you consider prospects
the best at present? I have in mind some sort of orchard
development with poultry and vegetable crops to go with
it and what general crops on a limited scale one could
handle with these. My idea is that such an operation
would bring larger returns with less heavy work than
doing general farming. Of course the detail would be
greater and closer attention would be necessary to handle
your work right. I was born on a good Wisconsin farm
and was raised there. I have studied poultry raising quite
a little, also bee keeping. I have also had practical experi-
ence with both of them.
What do you consider the comparison of citrus fruits
with paper shell pecans? Also including the growing of
Satsumas? What other plan of operation would you con-
sider attractive compared with what I have in mind? I
expect in some locations truck farming might offer pros-
pective larger returns; but I do not believe I would care
to enter that exclusively. That makes a strenuous line
of endeavor with considerable risk, both as to the season,
market and actual net return on this account; then a large
number of these crops are highly perishable, increasing
your risks if the market is off. I would like very well to
have your opinion on these different possible plans, how-
ever, and expected returns and what you consider the most
attractive endeavor at this time.
What part of your State do you consider the most at-
tractive for one like me? I have been in the Tampa sec-
tion but in 1919. I have read some on the North-West sec-
tion of Florida, the Milton and Pensacola section sounding
attractive, but the transportation facilities from that section
do not seem to appear very good. I intend to take a trip
through the South again soon and visit different sections to
see what would seem to satisfy us best. I would be very
glad to receive all advice possible for you to give me, and
also any general information possible.

Governor Trumbull plans to recommend this procedure
to the Connecticut Legislature at the approaching session.
He desires to have some data from the other states as a
recommendation.
Won't you therefore kindly send us some detailed in-
formation regarding the cost, the procedure and the results
of any advertising or publicity that has been done or is
being done by your state? Any suggestions will be most
welcome.


Cordially,

State Capitol,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Gentlemen:
Dr. L. M. Bristol of the University of Florida has referred
me to you in connection with some information which we
are desirous of obtaining on the immigration past and
present of your state. The United States Census gives quite
complete figures, but in its ordinary publications does not
give such details as occupation distribution by races.* If
you can furnish us with data covering the last two or
three decades, or yearly figures-in short, a more detailed
account of the foreign elements in your population-we
should be very grateful. Of particular interest would be
the facts and figures for the last five years. Any spot maps,
graphs, or charts which you might have suitable for mail-
ing would be especially appreciated.
Assuring you of our willingness to reciprocate in a similar
way whenever you may care to call on us, we are,
Yours sincerely,
L. M. BROOKS, Research Assistant,

Dear Sirs:
Seeing your ad in the Country Gentleman, I will be very
thankful if you would kindly send me the book on all
Florida, as I have thought of going down there for some
time now but don't know much about the state and the best
part to go to. I thought some time ago to go to Orlando
district. I just want somewhere about ten acres to raise
fruit and garden vegetables and perhaps keep a cow and
some chickens, etc. I have land here, but it is very cold in
winter and lonely. I am getting tired of the cold winters,
so I think I would like a change. My wife is dead some
years and I feel very lonely. What part of Florida you
would think best for a ten-acre tract. I might take more
later on. A reply will oblige yours very respectfully,
THOMAS CANNELL.
P. S. I am a tailor by trade so I might start a small
cleaning and pressing shop while waiting for things to be
getting ready on the land.

INFORMATION ABOUT JEFFERSON COUNTY
WANTED
Ogema, Wis.,
October 26, 1926.
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Dear Sir:
Can you give me any information on the following sub-
jects: Dairying in Jefferson County. Value of cleared
land. Value of raw or brush land. Value of partly improved
land. Average condition of roads, in regard to hauling with
trucks. Average depth of wells, condition of water. Markets
for fluid milk, sweet and sour cream, average price paid at
R. R. station for butter fat and sweet milk, at the present
time. Is there a market in summer for milk and cream?
Does the state own any land in Jefferson County, or can
you refer me to the proper authorities to whom I can apply
for farms that are sold on Tax deed.
I am a farmer (stock and dairy) up here in North Wis.,
(six inches of snow on the ground now) and am interested
in North Florida and have heard that it is a fine Dairy
County.
I am milking 15 head of Registered Holstein now and
they are all T. B. tested and free from abortion.
I am fully equipped for farming, tractor and tractor
plows, gang and breaker disk, motor truck and trailer, etc.
What I am interested in is a place about 100 acres, about
20 or 25 acres ready for the plow.
Do not care about the conditions of the buildings, as I
- have my own ideas of what a house should be. So do not
care to buy fine houses and outbuildings.
Have cleared up 80 acres up here in the Big Pine Belt
and am not afraid to swing an axe.
Now you have a line on what I want and what I can do
and I sure will be thankful for any information or help
that you can give me.
Can you put me in touch with the County Agent of Jeffer-
son County?
Thanking you in advance for the trouble I remain

Dear Sir:
I am very much interested in the future of Florida, as it
relates to myself and many of my friends who have in-
vested in lands on the West Coast of your State.
In the book "Florida In the Making," I learned that you
are one to whom inquiry for information may be addressed.
Will you be so good as to send me printed matter descrip-
tive of the present conditions in certain counties relating
to the different kinds of crops to which the land is suited;
the kind of crops now being raised; how much merchantable
timber is now standing (in acres) ; the cost of cut-over
timber lands; the cost of clearing such lands, as well as
the cost of clearing lands not covered with timber.
In fact, I will very much appreciate the mailing of
pamphlets or printed matter of any kind you may have
available for that purpose, which will give me as much and
as varied data as possible on land and agricultural and
horticultural conditions in the following counties.
Taylor, Lafayette, Madison, Dixie and Citrus.


I will gladly defray the postage and any other costs, if
I can get the information. There is just a little reason
for haste as I wish to study this material before leaving
on an extended trip; so I will be most grateful if you can
send whatever is available, at once.
With all good wishes, I am,
Sincerely,
G. W. LAWTON.

Gentlemen:
For his own use the writer is endeavoring to secure in-
formation regarding certain phases of agriculture in a num-
ber of leading states.
I would particularly appreciate at this time learning the
total number of tons of hay shipped into the State of
Florida from other states in the years 1925, 1924 and 1923,
respectively.
From what states largely does this hay come? What
proportion of it will be alfalfa or other leguminous hay?
What is the average price per ton which the consumer has
to pay for this hay?
I feel sure that this information can be most accurately
secured through your department, and am, therefore,
addressing the letter to you.
Thanking you for your kindness in securing this informa-
tion for me and for an early reply, I am,
Yours truly,

Mr. T. L. Brooks.
Dear Sir:
I received the August Florida Review from your office.
Thanks very much for same. Would appreciate more of
them. It was very interesting. After I read it I sent it
to a friend of mine that is interested in Florida. I have
bought a small farm over at Milton. Do you have an
Employment Bureau there at your office. I would like to
get a position on a poultry farm in Florida, where they
could use a good steady, sober and reliable man. I have
had quite a lot of experience with the care and feeding of
Poultry, also the selling end of it. I would like to work
on a place there before going on my own. I thought per-
haps you could give me some information that would be
best to do. Thanking you for the same.
Very truly yours.

Florida Review 15


HOW MUCH FRUIT IS WANTED IN FLORIDA?
12 East 31st St.,
New York City,
November 15th, 1926.
Mr. S. R. Mayo,
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Fla.
My Dear Mr. Mayo:
My associates and the writer is interested in building a
Refrigerator Plant in your State, but before proceeding with
the proposition would like to have an expression from you
on the subject.
Now in order to handle the matter intelligently it will be
necessary to have certain data, which no doubt you can
give us. Would the State assist the proposition by
appropriating any funds in order to promote such an enter-
prise?
We understand there is a considerable quantity of fruit
lost each year due to limited facilities for storing same
over the peak season, therefore we would like to know if
you can state what is the amount of this waste. Also what
is the total amount of fruit shipped during the season?
Also at what points would you consider the logical location
of such a plant?
We understand California ships fruit for twelve months,
while Florida only ships about eight months. If storage
facilities are available it would be possible for the grower
to hold over some of his crop, and ship same later, thus
receiving the benefit of the better market conditions. The
same is true of the vegetable market, for if they can store
to advantage the entire crop could be found profitable.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for past
courtesies extended to me, and assure you same have been
highly appreciated in the past, and will also be received in
like manner in the present instance.
Hoping to have the pleasure of hearing from you at your
convenience, and trusting to have the pleasure of seeing
you some time in the near future, I am, with kindest
regards,
Very truly yours,
J. M. LEGOU.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THESE LOTS?

Bureau of Immigration,

Department E.
Dear Sir:
October 28, 1922, I was down to Miami, Fla.; I believe
it was called Naval Day, as the battleship Goff was there
that day. I stayed in Miami three weeks. I was very
sick there at the time. Florida is a wonderful state. I
want to go to Florida again. Down at Arcadia Gardens I
own a half interest or am to have a lot there purchased of
Stanley Realty Development Co., 160 North La Salle St.,
Chicago, Illinois. Lot 7-457th block, 5th addition. Can
you find out if there is a lot like that there. Section 20,
township 38 South, Range 26, DeSoto County, Florida. What
is this lot worth now. I would like to buy more lots on
the payment plan or get ten acres of land out from city
like Miami, in west of Flagler street, for city lots, 3 to
10 miles out in 5 or ten-acre tracts. We here in Walton,
that is my mother and I are good truck raisers, as we
came off the farm. We plan lots of the garden by calendar
signs of the Zodiac, Cancer and Scorpio to plant vegetables
and in Aries the rain to destroy weeds.


If you know of any body that wants gardens put out for
a per cent, like celery, strawberries, or I am good at clear-
ing up ground. I have worked at about everything from
husking corn to working on construction work.
Please give price of lots and land per acre at Arcadia
and at Miami. I know Arcadia Gardens is supposed to be
in the sugar cane district. Hoping to hear from you soon,
Yours truly,
EDWARD O. BECHDOL.

Commissioner of Agriculture,

Dear Sir:
Your letter of March 30th, received with many thanks.
From the "Florida Farm Census," which you also were
good to send me, I learn that the number of swine is de-
creasing very considerably in almost every county. Could
you give me the reason why this is so? Are the pigs sub-
ject to any pig fevers or pests of insect pests in your hot
climate or do they not thrive well there for any reason?
Is it not possible to raise pigs on pasturage in Florida?
Economically and with profit.
I would be obliged to you if you would give me an
exhaustive reply and information on pig raising, as it is
part of my plan to start a pig ranch of rather large propor-
tions if climate and conditions are suitable and chiefly
based on pasturage. What can breeding sows be bought for
and what can be obtained for pigs on foot or dressed?
Could you give me addresses of good pig farms in Florida,
where pure breds can be had?
Could you give me the name of literature on pig raising?
Thanking you in anticipation,
Yours truly,
AXEL E. EKMAN.

Dear Sir:
Your large sectional state map received and thanks. Sent
to various places for information as to land values and
crops, etc., and now know where can stop at $25 per day,
but rather know where can make a living from the ground
and less than the $25 per for future. Had a tropic planta-
tion but the agraristas took it, but we all got out alive.
Course wish now that had put in time and money in Florida
though when started, there want no Florida except swamps,
alligators, seminoles and mosquitoes.
Have experience in cane, rice, tropic fruits and can get
along with the Mex. peon and would try and get for labor.

Rev. J. L. Buckley, Pastor, Lincoln 2676-M.
Department of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Fla.
Dear Sirs:
The enclosed ad is from the February issue of the Poultry
Tribune, but I thought perhaps you would favor me with
some information. Is there any land in Florida that can
still be bought cheaply, on easy terms, land suitable for
poultry raising?
Does Florida offer a real opportunity to one who has a
knowledge of poultry and practical experience, but limited
funds? I have two boys, 17 and 15 years of age, desiring
rural life and wanting to build up a real poultry business.
Kindly furnish us with all the information you can. Both
my wife and myself love the South.
Sincerely,
J. L. BUCKLEY.


VERMONT CAMPS, INC.
Main Office Rutland, Vt.
Nov. 12, 1926.
Nathan Mayo,
Commissioner of Agriculture,
Tallahassee, Florida.
My Dear Mr. Mayo:
May I thank you for your kindness in sending me your
large sectional map of Florida, together with much other
data that is to me of great value, because I feel that is
wholly dependable, a feature that is especially worth while
in view of the many folders from the various Chambers of
Commerce that I am getting, and which, I always, may be
just a mite overdrawn, even without such intent.
My attention is drawn more especially to the region im-
mediately adjacent to your Lake George, which I note is
merely a swelling on the St. Johns River, and of course
goes and comes with the tide, but it seems to me that this
should be an ideal winter spot for us from the north who
wish to get inland. May I trouble you to tell me what is
the reason for no apparent development of this section,
seemingly a lake some twenty miles long by ten miles wide,
which should be of great value as a balance wheel between
your possible frosts of the northern part of your state, and
the other possible hot spells.
If you can enlighten me in this matter it will be much
appreciated. If this section is inhabitable and developable,
which ought to be the case unless as suggested it is too
low, I shall look it over before going farther south, where
the land is probably higher, and therefore better developed
and more desirable.
Have you, or the government yet surveyed this region
for Topographical Maps, and if you have, will you put me
in the way of securing one. These are always quite de-
pendable as to elevations, etc., and I am intensely curious
as to why this, apparently your largest inland lake after
Okeechobee, is so lacking in developments.
One of the Chambers to whom I have written, has men-
tioned that your recent Legislature has authorized certain
inland waterways. I have studied the canoe routes in the
Maine woods and the Adirondacks, the playgrounds of our
section, where one has to "carry" half the time, and it
seems to me that that if your state is to develop water-
ways all thru the interior, you are going to add immensely


to the profit and pleasure of life in the interior, as I would
expect there would then be no difficulty in going over
these routes with a considerable sized boat, there being
nothing worse than an occasional lock to be negotiated, if
indeed you are going to need them. I shall be again in-
debted to you if you will give me as full data covering
these above mentioned features as is conveniently available
to you, and for this please permit me to thank you in
advance.
Very sincerely yours.
W. L. Archer, Manager,
VERMONT CAMPS, Inc.


WHERE IS A RENTER FOR THIS FARM?
45 5th Avenue,
New York,
December 11, 1926.
Hon. Nathan Mayo,
Commissioner of Agriculture.
Tallahassee, Fla.
Sir:
I have recently noted that the State Chamber of Com-
merce is endeavoring to get settlers to come to Florida for
the purpose of increasing the agricultural production. In
this connection it has occurred to me that there may be a
number of inquiries for farms to be rented and as I have
never yet seen an advertisement of a farm for rent on a
crop sharing basis it may be that there are more available
renters than there are available farms.
I own 350 acres of good land in the strong soil belt of
Marion County. It is 90% cleared and ready for the plow.
There are four small farm houses and several outbuildings.
The land has been intermittently farmed for a hundred
years. For the last seven or eight years it has lain fallow
or been used for grazing purposes only.
The land fronts for 114 miles, the Irvine-Williston high-
way, which is as fine a paved road as there is in the state.
It lies /2-mile east of the Dixie Highway and one mile
west of the town of Irvine.
The land is all perfectly drained and there are several
good limestone springs. The amount of clay in the soil is
greater than usual in this district, so that the moisture is
reasonably well retained.
Railroad (T. & J.) at Irvine, Atlantic Coast Line at Mc-
Intosh (3/) miles) and Orange Lake 1% miles. Bank,
telephone exchange, telegraph stations, packing houses, etc.,
at McIntosh. Stores at McIntosh, Irvine and Fairfield,
(3 miles). Ocala lies 16 miles south, Gainesville about 26
miles north. Large crate and basket mill at Irvine.
I will rent all, or portions of the land from 40 acres up,
on a crop sharing basis, taking a reasonable part of the
grass crop. This is provided I have a responsible tenant,
and also provided I have some voice in the selection of the
crops, (no cotton for me). The land is suitable for grow-
ing cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, beans, English peas, cucum-
bers, sweet corn, watermelons, squash, cantaloupes, etc.
There is some good lettuce land. Excellently suited for
growing Satsumas and the hardier oranges, also grapes.
If the department has any means of putting the farm
lessor and lessee together, I will appreciate it if you will
refer this letter to the proper quarter. In case it has not,
and you have any suggestions to make which you think
might result in my renting my farms this season, I will
appreciate hearing from you.
Very truly yours,
NORMAN MERRIMAN.
