AN ACT To Amend Sections 10, 20 and 22, of Chapter 6488, Laws of
Florida, Acts of 1913, Being "An Act To Regulate the Employment
S of Minor Children in the State of Florida, and To Provide Penalties
for the Violations Thereof; Creating the Office of State Labor
Inspector, and Defining the Duties and Compensation of Such Officer."
Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the .'r,',..of 'l'orila :
Section 1. No boy under the age of 10 years and no girl under the
age of 16 years shall distribute, sell, expose or offer for sale newspapers,
.. .. ... I.... ii..i ls in any street or public place in any city of six
: I in,1 l .p ,,ll.,rr* or over.
Sec. 2. No child under 12 years of age shall be employed, permitted,
or suffered to work in, about or in connection with any store, office, or in
the transmission or sale of merchandise, or in the transmission of mes-
,,-:. in any city of 6,000 population or more.
...,. 3. No child under 14 years of age shall be employed, permitted
or suffered to work in, about or in connection with any mill, factory,
workshop, mechanical establishment, laundry, or on the stage of any
theater.
Sec. 4. No child under 10 years of age shall be employed, permitted
or suffered to work in any factory, workshop, laundry, mill or mine, unless
the person or corporation employing him procures and keeps on file and
accessible to the judicial and police officers of the town or city, and to
tie State Labor Inspector, an employment certificate as hereinafter pre-
scribed, and keeps two complete lists of all such children employed therein,
one on file and one conspicuously posted near the principal entrance of
the building in which such children are employed. On termination of the
employment of the child so registered, and whose certificate is so filed,
such certificate shall forthwith be surrendered by the employer to the
child or its parent or guardian or custodian. The State Labor Inspector
may make demands on an employer in whose establishment a child under
the age of 16 years is employed, and whose employment certificate is
not then filed as required by this act, that such employer shall either
furnish him within ten days evidence satisfactory to him that such
child is in fact over 14 years of age, or shall cease to employ or
permit or suffer such child to work therein. The Labor Inspector
may require from such employer the same evidence of age of such
child as is required on the issuance of an employment certificate,
and the employer furnishing such evidence shall not be required to
furnish any further evidence of the age of the child. In case such im-
ployer shall fail to produce and deliver to the Inspector within ten days
after such demand such evidence of age herein required of him, and there-
after continue to employ such child or permit or suffer such child to worns
in such establishment, proof of the giving of such notice and of such fail-
ure to produce and file such evidence shall be prima facie evidence in any
prosecution brought for violation of the provision that such child is under
14 years of age and is unlawfully employed.
Sec. 5. An employment certificate shall only be approved by the
county superintendent of schools, or by a person authorized by him in
iir.-, ..r, where there is no superintendent of schools, by a person
l ,!.... '.I by the school board, provided that no member of a school
board or other person authorized as aforesaid shall have authority to
approve such certificate for any child then in or about to enter his own
employment, or the employment of a firm or corporation of which he is
a member, officer or employee.
Sec. 6. The person empowered to issue employment certificates shall
not issue such certificates until he has received, examined, approved and
filed the following papers duly executed:
(1) The school record of such child properly filled out and signed
as provided herein below. (2) A passport or duly attested transcript
of the certificate or birth or baptism or other religious record showing
the date and !1.1i.. ,.t iI,'Lt ...L a child. A duly attested transcript of

mentioned transcript of the certificate of birth be not produced and
filed, showing the place and date of birth of such child, which affidavit
must be taken before the officer issuing employment certificates, who
is hereby authorized and required to administer such oath, and who shall
not demand or receive a fee therefore. Such employment certificate shall
not be issued until such child has personally appeared before and been
examined by the officer issuing the certificate, and until such officer
shall, after making examination, file and sign in his office a statement
that the child can read and legibly write simple sentences in the English
language and that in his opinion the child is 13 years of age or upward
and has received the normal development of a child of its age, and is in
sound health and is physically able to perform the work which it intends
to do. In doubtful cases such physical fitness shall be determined by a
medical officer of the board or department of health, or by the county
physician. Every employment certificate shall be signed in the presence
of the child in whose name it is issued.
Sec. 7. Such certificate shall state the date and place of birth of the
child, and describe the color of the hair and eyes, the height and weight
and any distinguishing facial marks of such child, and that the papers
required by the preceding section have been duly examined, approved and
filed and that the child named in such certificate has appeared before
the officer signing the certificate and has been examined.
Sec. 8. The school record above mentioned shall be signed by the
principal or chief teacher of the school which such child has last attended
and shall be furnished, on demand, to a child entitled thereto. It shall
contain a statement certifying that the child has regularly attended the
public schools or school equivalent thereto or parochial school for not less
than 60 days during the school year previous to his arriving at the age

dian; provided, that upon the filing with the person authorized to issue
employment certificates or the affidavits of the applicant or of his or her
parent, guardian or custodian, showing that diligent effort has been made
to obtain the school record hereby required and that it cannot be obtained,
then the person authorized to issue the certificate may issue such a cer-
tificate without having received such school record, but it shall be his
duty, in such case, to examine the applicant as to his or her proficiency
in each of the studies mentioned in this section; and in such case, the
employment certificate shall show that such examination was had in lieu
of the filing of the school record.

It will be our province to advance all these things. At the Fed-

on meeting in DeLand, there were many ways suggested to make money

he park. The President has decided to try the plan of'oolleoting

e of dimes...She has had cards made one foot long that will hold

e dimes, and these boards are to be taken up by the different clubs

illed. All money is to be sent to Mrs. John Gifford, who in turn

it to the state Treasurer, and it is then available for immediate

n soaring for and improving the Royal Palm State Park. It was de-

that there should be no time limit to the filling of these cards,

hat there should be .an extra effort made to get as many filled anut

asible during January. Mrs. Evans moved that the first collection

nt to Mrs. Gifford& the first week in February. Mrs. Kirk Munroe

ded the motion, which was carried. It was further decided that the

should send in the collections at the end of each month, after the

one in February. ws'. Jennings said she thought it best to tell t

ttee that the caretaker would have to be paid one hundred dollars p

, and that a suitable house would have to be provided for him to ii
th his .family.

Mrs. Bryan was asked. to tell about her visit to the famous Gardens

Litenzorg, in Java.. She said these gardens were most pleading to th

shey found them of unusual interest because of the great variety of

.oa things ;that had been gathered from all over the world and culti
L with care. She described a wonderful avenue of the Kanori trees

I trees are beautiful, and each tree had a different kind of vine gr

esi.de it and trained over.it. The government has spared no pkBa

i to plan and select .the trees and plants for this garden, and they

;edwith a view of the effect when the things had attained their gro

suggested that we should have a plan for improving our park similar

,.that is, to look into the future. It was. suggested that we aek DZ
Ptford, and Prof4 Simpson to formulate a plan that the Federation

I usei. in developing a d preserving the park, Mrs. Jenninga reported

.r. 1Wad4ell had promised her 5000 ooooanute for the park.

.She thought the keeper.'s house should be large enough to aooommo-

small parties a nd Loientiate, or visitors, and that lunches might

Irved to.visitors.

Vic3-Pros't, Sec. 4, F. F. '.7. C,
Daytona, Fla.

I;i7 dear :i.3a Thorpe:.--

I an sending you copy of Constitution and By-Laws and Year-Book
under separate cover. You will probably understand fror the reports
that it is expected that the vice-presidentswill try as soon as pos-
sible tc visit atf olubs in thWivarious sections, and it has betn
the custom to hold hsese reciprocity meetings, as the Daytona club did;
but better still county meetings with federated and unfederated clubs.
Port Oran-e Club has not made application yet, and this may
furnish P"IeM-y one town to work on at once. We hope they will come
in very soon.
"e hope to reach the 10,000 mark in the next two years.
Applications for admission to the Federation iTust be accompanied
by a check and they should have a Constitution and by-laws and no men
nremers. The club need not issue a year-book, as you understand, or
anything like that, but it shoulT be a bona ;ide orEahttaAtnn.
You realize, of course, that you are a mem er of the Fed3ration
Board of Directors, and, ans Mrs. Stanley has invited the board to
meet with the Daytona club the next time, which will probably be in
February, (you will receive a notice in due time) it will be very con-
venient for you to be with us. So, if you wish to confer with the
vice-presidents, you will have this opportunity, as they are Board
reImb rs also and are expected to attend the board meetings. Our seo-
tion bha been irorked very little3nd we are looking to you to visit the
clubs anid stir up uilte a little interest. If you express some wish
as to the time it will be most convenient for you to visit Jacksonvil; e
we oanarrange for a day lat-r in the season. I think there is at
least one club near here that we miLht ;et to come into the Federation.
The two St.AuZustine olubs are rather quiet and not doing as
well as they might; also the Hastings Club has gone out of the Fed-

Sanford, Fla. Dec. 3, 1915



Sdear Mrs. Jennings:

I an exceedingly sorry that it has been it,: s-

sible for me to send you copies of the resolutions which you desire,

but I have been too busy to get a good breath ever since my return,

and tiis past week has been exceptional. I am afraid to do this

work hastily after our experience of last year, and then I have the

resolutions pinned to my book in the proper order, and am wondering

if T would ever aFain get them straight. T had hoped to have writ-

ten out the minutes before, but it has been impossible. This week

T a- preoaring a leuter for the ..i.;, Tribune whici requires a good

deal of time, and planning and arranging to move and leave my fur-

nished home in shape to be rented the fifteenth of this month. Some

repairs are in process also. So, you see, dear lady, I' up to my

eyes. After t ie fifteenth I hope to get my breath and bearings

once more.

If my t-' ..r itor was at home I might attend to this work in

the evenings, but it is now in the store down town and c-ly only op-

portunity is during toe day, and so far have been too busy to get

any 1,riting except the business letters, done. You see my minutes

arc in shorthand, so no one can do t em but m .. If.

I am so sorry u've had such a time witi your foot, but re-

joice to hear that you are better. I trust you will have no fur-

ther trouble, for I know how painful such things can be.

.- surely did have a splendid convention, the very best of all

the five I',ve had the privilege of attending. Next year will be

even better, but I'm urging you to consider yourself a little bit

more, or you'll not hold out in your present excellent condition for

the coming two years. You're putting a pretty severe strain on

yourself.

At our next regular meeting, I'm going to suggest that Sanford

invite the Board for tuie spring meeting, unless you think T had

better not. Our people are in a way rather afraid of doing such

things on account of our poor hotel accommodations, but perhaps our

members can arrange to entertain the members of the Board in their

:)vn homes. About how many could we expect do you think, judging

from past meetings? I would be so glad to bring this good thing

to S:.ford before my term expires entirely.

Assuring you that I shall send the requested copies at the

earliest possible moment, and that I am carrying the responsibility

on my heart and ri.;' every moment until they are sent, and with

much love, I am,
Very sincerely yours,




.S. sent a number of reports to L'rs. Jenison at her request,

me to date.

doet 'ot send then in r'aso'-a'-le le:nth of time, ple aee .;rite to

sure she will be jI.. to help yo1n, and I, of course, will also. A lit-

in every "y', po3.3lble. At these county meetings the presidents of

a:nd then too tha Eth iJ.l. make a better sho-rin, next year even in

we can Eake a splendid shoo-in Fmd you ,u:3t remember th.-t I am Always
ro-.dy and willin, to do my part to help e .ch section. It is expected,
however, of the vi'er-presidents thl,:t they visit as mu:;h of their
aecticns as pce7ible duriri- the year, as only by this way car -!e hope
to keep up the enthusiasm and the interest of the club rembErs.

I'ra. M:core noi has a letter in preparation to the clubs asking
3ach club to have 3 olu' extension cor"ittee, which would not only
mean noe clubs to the FoedLration but increased rmebership in the clubs

If ycu have any special plans for your section, plea3e let me
kno~7, and it milIht be a good idea for you to write a very enthusi-
astic circular it each club in your section rr.resdiately after Christ-
mas to enlist their interest in the work of swelling the membership
in the Fed-ration. Any time you wish to send a let-tr to the press
send it to me and I will hand it over to Mra. Jenison after approv-
in asame. You should always have six copies of these letters, be-
ceuse it is only faith to let one section know what another section is
doing, and by this friendly competition stimulate the interest in club
work. Remember I an always at your service.

Jalct-onville, Fla., Dec. 3rd, 1915.

L'ra. John Gifford,
Chairman of Park Com., F. F. .,
Coconut Grove, Fla.

My dear Mrs. Gifford:--

I have your lett-.r and will notify you just as scon as the
deed is executed for the exchange of land which we have already been
granted by the Trustees in Sec. 21, E.. of Sec. 30, Tp.58, R. 37, in
exchange for the land that the Mode] Land Company had given us on be-
half of Mrs. Flagler for endowment. This is very excellent land and,
of course, will be of much more assistance to us in every way, as we
hope to rent for tomatoes and not sell, and our caretaker could at-
tend to all, of course. I had hoped to be able to write you this
before, but have not made the exchange vary public, waiting until the
final si:gntures were received, as I thought it best not; but the trus-
tees have all the papers ready for the exchange and have agreed to
same, and the Governor is looking after the matter personally for us.
S Am confident that everything will be all ri,ht.
Am glad that you are taking such vigorous steps, and I am mak-
in, some other suggestions about your committee.
"ra. Bow is a very splendid woran in many ways, but I under-
stand fronr things I have heard that she would not be very easy to
work with the local people and would not be popular with yrbue commit-
- tee. Mrs. Bow was on the visit we 'aid to the park and saugestedat
once that she be put in charge of the work of the park. Mrs, Kirk
'unroe, of course, seconded this very strongly, and I was called upon
to put my foot down very atrengayely on the proposition, and stated
that this'r".as no place for a woman by herself, and that Mrs. Bow would
not fill the bill at all.
I am very anxious to keep aloof from any local ent-.nglemrnts
or co nection with this park work, if possible, because we could be
dreadfully imposed upon, if we should get hold of some undesirable peo-
ple, and it r.iht be very uncomfortable for all parties to get rid of
her. Then too -re must have someone who knows a great deal about

Mrs. J. G.-3.

plants, the care of them, etc., like 1'r. Iosier; otherwise ?e might
aacrifice the choicest plants we have, and it appears to me that it
would almost be better not to have anyone than an uninformed parson.
So, while I would accept all Mrs. Bow's information and be nice to
her, I give you this confidentially, so that you may be on your guard,
because I irnagine she is a very persistent woman once she gets started,
and she .iht be of great annoyance to you. Therefore I think it
best to a. point those fror the local people whom I have eu,(ested,
leaving Mrs. Blakesley out, as it was she who su, .ested :rs. Byrd and
Mrs. Byrd represents her club, and I think it best to have only one
representative from each of those local clubs. As Mrs. Byrd is not
the president of any club, she rmirht have more time for the chairrman-
ship of this advisory committee which you will be allowed than the
other numbers I have suggested- Mrs. Fvana,a~ e rs, Loveland and I.ras
Taylor, for instance. It would also be well to suggest to these clubs
that they with this advisory member of your corirnittee form a special
cor-ittee for park work, which would help each one of the other mem-
bers in the park work on your committee. n'e want to avoid making
one club feel that -re h-ve favored it more than another, and we think
the only way to do this is to keep to one memb-r from ech club and
let them furnish an extra cormittee to work with this member in their
club, they, of course, to select the strongest rerber they have for
this 'oork.

It might be best to make Mrs. Hayden chaia: an of your advisory
corvittee, as I su ested, instead of Mrs. Byrd, but, of course, lrs.
Byrd is near you also, yet you need someone near you to advise with
'and help you, and rsa. Hayden will work I am confident wherever you
wish to place her. The park to her is bigger than any special place
on the committee. She is a splendid woran, and I am deli' ted with
what I know of her and am indebted to you for this local. acquaintance.
She did beautifully at the Federation nesting :nd we are to publish
her article soon. She will furnish me another article shortly got
the papers.
I regret very much that people are beginning to both-r our
park. I think we had better start the "mile of dimes" as soon as
possible, and within the next few days I will send you the little
card boards, and you can ask the clubs how many thay will each take,
explaining same to them, ',nd we will have a circular letter gotten
out about the park and its needs, .so they can be started on their mis-
sion with all possible speed. This seeris to me the simplest :way to
-et this work started. As I will probably be down there so soon, I
think it best to wait and talk over the matter of signs and order them
there instead of here. In the meantime though I understand that they
have in one of the bookstores there somewhere some "trespass" notices
of cloth which are not very expensive end which quote the law. I have
thought,while in Miami,it would not be a bad idea to get a hundred -
may be 50 would do-.of these notices and .et somebody to go down there
3i1d put them up at once. I think any of these people who are inter-
ested in the park would be glad to do this for us, and -e could gat
them all through the .park, and -7e could get our big signs put up later.
I think the edge of the hammock all around should be posted and ocoa-
sionally one placed here and there. You can buy them and make the
best arrangement for them and send bill for the expense for my 0. K.,
' '....-











lrs. J. G.-3.

and ii3is Jackson can -y it. I do not suppose they cost very much.
You night let me know what they cost and I can see if I can get a
better price on them here, which I will try to doithis aft-rnoon and
let you know. Will also send you a sample.
I can have you some raps made here in out office, but, of course,
if they will furnish them to you the e for nothing, all ri-ht. I
think I would asc-rtain from Mrs. Bow's son all about the palms, who
Las them, etc., and get the sheriff or one of .is deputies to notify
th parties that they should not take same again under fear of arrest,
hnd th*A if they. perist,-' e can get the sheriff to arrest some of
them and give publicity to it and thus check their .rdor in palm sell-
ing to some extent. But I should oart.-inly get their names and
notify the sheriff of this incident and get him to give ~a a spd6fal
deputy to help us to watch our park for a while and to warn people.
Ie{ might write a notice for the paper over his signature, which -ould
be a reat help in notifying people that they are not to touch any-
t-ing in the park. You m::ight see what Mr. Mosier would do for us
also. You see we have only ~240.00 on hand, and :;e have to depend
on th.t for signs, etc., so it might be possible to stretch it out
in getting some nrctection also until vie can reap some b-nefit from
our oth-. efforts.
You rust remenmb2r that I stand ready at all tires to help you
and will not spare myself in assisting you to make the jsak -rhat it
should be. Of course, we can not do everything in a day, and Mr.
Jennings thinks we are getting along splendidly to have succeeded in
getting the exchange of the land which puts us three or four miles
ne.rer the railroad and gives us greater advantage for renting, and
also havinL. this splendid road built through our property, -which at
the rost conservative eatit ate -ill cost :10,000.00 when ccrmpleted.
ie can not hope for any better progress. That idea of a ccncert for
the park is a good one, and I hope you will succeed locally, so that
it will give you ccurage to try this method for the State park.

With love and best wishes to you and Dr. Gifford and the season's
greetings,
Sincerely,


President.

Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 3rd, 1915.


Mrs. TN. L. Stanley,
Chairman of 7at-arways, F< F. W. C.,
Daytona, Fla.
Iy dear lrs. Stanley:--

I really do not think you need my prayers, because I feel p:r-
fectly confident you did get through your club day in good shape and
**ith flying colors.
I ha.ve an article on Waterways from the California Year-Book,
and I think I "will send you this year-book and you can read the article
and return to me. I may help you some with ideas for our Federation,
and you can write to "rs. Dickinson, who is chairman of conservation
for the General Fed-ration. Her name is in our Year-Book und-ir"hai*-
men for Ceneral Federation Work". She can give you runh information.
Also the Department of Intorior.of the United States at W.ahington
will send you bulletins, if you request it.
I certainly a -preciate the invitation of Palmetto Club for the
Board meeting. I will notify the clubs through the ne7spap.rs,s and
in February sometime, when we set the date, I iill consult you, of
course, in advance to see what date would suit you best; but I rather
fancy early in February is the best time for the board, as we try to
meet every three months. It certainly is .cod of youfolks to want
us, and I know we will have a splendid meeting.- Miss Thorpe will have
plenty of time to consult the vice-presidents, if they come, for they
and she are also members of the board.
I am very sorry that the "Riso"wks sick in bed with the hed.-che
and I was not there to doctor her as she doctored me the day I arrived
thbre with mine. She is certainly a dear and you may tell her for me
that I have he .duchce enough for us both and she must stop her part
of them-..
''ith warmest regards to you, not forgetting your good husband,
Very sincerely,


President.

Ntolriba 3,b6natw-n of Mowen's (1.111uh




























Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 3rd, 1915.

SMrs. W. F. Blaokman,
Chairr:an of Literature & Library Extension,
F. F. W. C., Winter Park, Fla.
Fy de- r Mrs. Blackran:--

I have your letter and note your objections to having women so
far front you for literate.L..w6rk, and agree with you that your pint
is well taken. The other chairman, of course, wantedd the vice-
chairman to have the outline study work, as she w... connected with this
big club here which issues splendid programs, and this is her reason
for havinL women elsewhere do the work. In the educational work,
we must write Mrs. Corbett here to do the political science claa.
study outline.
I agree with you that this is the most important work of your
committee to eome extent at least, the work that requires more per-
sonal supervision, which I had to eu-ply youk know for Mrs. Batey,
on account of her absence from the State. It has been the -oustor to
put on eaoh cornittee a member froi. each section, which rc'ould distrib-
ute the work and the interest throughout the State as much as possible.
Section 3 is very small and you really do not need a member up there,
and you might have these ladies you suggest on your cormrittee for close
consultation and atill have your vice-chairman at Coconut Crove, and
let hr have charge of writing the -clubs and having them contribute
literature for libraries, because the library extension 7oork also
belongs to ycur committee. These letters could be written and sent
out. If circular letters, they could also bear your signature. These
would have to be submitted to you-and to me for approval before being
mailed out, because they would be your committee letters. I think
Mrs. Bush would be a great help to you in this work, as ihe has al-
ready collected two libraries for the Federation, a.nd the literature
department of the Miami club is one of the beet in the State. The ob-
ject of the vice-ohairr3n would be to represent the coir-ttee,in case-
the chairmen should be absent,. at a meeting, or, as in Mrs. Datey's
case; when she moved fror- the State I had to appoint an acting chair-
n. ao that her report could be read at the Federation convention. 4
unerwse auoh reports can not be.read. These rqporto come in handy
.. -


I i .











I'ro. % F. B.-2.

and we feel with the General Federation that we should have a vice-
chairman for ea:h committee. If you had a member from the Woman's
Club here, the one I suggested, Irs.. L'Engle, she could furnish you
with copies of programs fror here ,vhich night be of assistance in
makir. up new ones. I think there iculd be no necessity for get-
ting out a study program for this year, but y-u could work on one
and look around and we could print same as soon after the next Fed-
eratlon meeting as possible, so that the clubs could have the advan-
tage of it in making up their year-books the followinL ourimer. If
ybu h.d the women you suggest, it'fould be perfect y satisfactory to
me, althcuwh, as I said, it is not customary to center in one oommit-
tee(and the co. rittees never d.o have nreotinga; it is all done by mail,
yc:u c.wuld have Mrs. HaldErstadt froze. Wint-r Park, Mrs. Warlow from
Orlando, -nd somebody fror' Sanford, which I dc not see a,-y objection
to; but, as the Woman's Club of Tampa is entirely a literary club,
it ri -ht be sappea best to get one from there also. Of course, Seo.2
would not bo represented either, unless you could get women fror the
7oran's Club of Ooala or Live Oak, so!e;ihere around ther in S1c. 3.
You ri.,ht get what help you need locally and then adid the s rromen
to your corrittes so as to represent the sections. If you could pos-
sibly do without the one at rintes Park, as you are already over there,
and just get h-r to assist the committee, as has b:cn the custom,
except in leGialxtive work, I think it would be wiser than to have
except tt ooria,,. iie. Yo y,
so many fro. one olub on a State corri Ae. You see yo v Culd then
have five frc.i S:o. 5 and the other tw,/from Section 4'and-l & a w:uld
give you eight on your oo-rittee, which I think -e will have to manage
to cut down in some way. I rather believe Mrs. Bush would be the one
for your library extension -ork, a3 she seems more interested in it
than anyone else I have seen and would be more help to you on the
oor-rittea in that line than anybody else, and you could turn the
work over to hnr and tell her you expect her to carry it cut. I believe
she would enjoy this, although I am not certain that aho -rill aooept.
If yov think it is absolutely necessary to have ?Tro. Halderstadt, I
would leave off the'member front anford r fvie versa. Thea. see if
Frs. Lowqy fror Tampa will serve again, or, if you prefer a new mem-
b-r, try !lre. Ligat, the Pree't of the 'ouman's Club of Tarpa.
I will try to get you a nembenr here, and -e will endeavor to
consolidate the work as must as possible so that you ca.n make it as
effective as possible without too much work, as I simply c .n not give
you up. I have already announced you as appointed, and it rculd be
a very ,reat embarra-sment now and probably be very hard to induce
any other woman to take same.
SI oo Trgratulate yo. on instituting the Savings Bank system in
your schools, and wish you would let Mre. W7riht of Lakeland know asI
know she would be glad. I will sae you on the 13th and talk matters
over with you asjain. You can see what they do here in the club and
also talk to the little woman whom I shall ask to serve on your com-
rittee, and I feel sure everything can be adjusted to make it as easy
as possible, and we need have no complaint from any section about.not
beina, represented on that committee.

:rs ". F BR- ..

.The vorer. you suggest are fine. I have had a very pleasant ao-
quaintanoeship with "rs. fTarlow ard adrirce her vyry ruoh. I think
she can bo of .reat assistance to you. As soon as you hbve all the
na-ice oi yc'zr list please send them to me with the full addcrosaas of
the woi.en. As I have the le flets issued by the lite-ary department
hcre, I jill -send one of their to each of the nel clubs before sending%
the rest to you, which will save you the trouble, as I have so5I other
leaflets to send theirr also. Then you can keep these o- hand to
send to ncr clubs as soon as they are admitted into the Fed ration,
and I think yoTu ill have encu h for this year's U3Ce.

Dr. GrO-ce '.hitford,
Chairman Heailth Dept., F. F. "'. C.,
Ozona, Fla.

Dear Dr. .'"hitford:--

I Gre*.tly anrecia'-te your letter and yo-u: will find me at all
tires re'dy to cooperate with you in your work. As soon aa I can get
hold of Dr. Stevens' husb-nd I will aok hir to as' if he c:at find you
some of hlr letters that she sent out, whichh would Live yocu sore idea
of the way she handled matt-ro. I arn efolosi-" a letter which I will
thank yotu to return to me. This is one of the letter that Dr. Ste-
vens sent out. I. think you rirht a:scrtain from tn g0men on h.r
comr.itte:(their names are in th-e ye-r-book)the kind cf letij ra they
sent out and -erhps tey cuild furnish a copy of oi z of each, which
would Liv. yVu a ,cod dm?..1 of insight as to the vrork they did, if you
will '.rrite to then. I think, however, t'at you and F'rr. :'cCullough
wele a cut the only Active help she re lly had as near a~ I ca. re-
m-nber. You may have Tr.. Ida whitee P-trken on your co'ritt e, if you
wish, and I will out Urs. Powell on the leLialative co-mittee instead.
Cf ccurse, y-u "'ill have to ,o-t '7ormen for your comitteo who are best
fitted for the "ork, but it is our de-ire tc .~et one fr r' each sec-
tion as ne.r as -o:'sible. I think 'r:-. Towrnsend fror Cren Cove
Springs did absolutely nothing, wculd hbr.' ry answer Dr. qtevrno' lt-
t-rs, and while Frs. TFunpireys of Live rak in a very ri, 't woran, I
ar impressed with the idea t' _t she did v- ry little to assist in the
work. I wish yo- 'c Id get sever-l -'Iomen who -:i.uld re.:jly help you.
Of ccursa in the -health 'fork it i3 v-ry necessary to have trained peo-
ple, and I see no -ray by whichh ,bill the seoti.:ns c .ld he represented
unless t. ey could furnish you with the names of persona "ho re:.lly
know their business, which in, reilly necessary in ycur norkl.

I will think the matter over for Sec. 4, but at present I ed
not kh6w of anyone whom I could recommend. I am _oing to ask rs-.

t aston Edwards to take hold in the "baby week", as I had already put










Dr. G. 7-2.


stamp
thematter in her hands, and as you have the_/work in hand, I will re-
quest that you will merely cooperate with her in this work and let
,her take the lead, as she is a doctor's wife and very enthusiastic.
It might be, of course, that you could asoe doctor's wives on your com-
mittee that would be of great assistance to you. Mrs. F. E. Buck,
South Jacksonville Book Club and also the Vomran's Club is a dentist's
wife and did good work as civil service reform chairrLan. It might
be that I can find some doctors' wives here who would be interested
in the iwork and could get their husbands to assist them. Mrs. Jay
Durkee,' Pres't of the Friday Pusicale, is a physician's wife, and if
you -fill w-.it a little while I will try to supply- you with the name
of someone from the fourth section who will be of more service to you
than those we have had in the past.
With best wishes for the success of your work and the greetings
of the season,

Very sincerely,


SPresident.

Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 3rd, 1915,
Dr. Grace 'Titfcrd,
Ozona, Fla.
Desa Dr. s'1jitford!--
I just have your letter enclosing one fro- Mrs. Humphreys.
I think Dr. 1tevons' idea was to secure certain health books and
have cne placed (of each kind) in each one of our traveling libraries
which could easily be done, and you yourself could decide on the kind
necessary to purchase and the fund on hand, of course, would supply
the means. They should be very simple, as the public would not be
able to understand sane otherwise. You might get Mrs. Humphreys to
send you a list of what she reco-rended and also publish list in pages.
This could be dor.e by sending six copies of list to me. This would
give thl' local clubs a ohanoe to secure a list if they wish. I do not
think it necessary to continue the library feature, as ycu c.n direct
that yourself.
I notice that Tra. Emily Dickinson is pre:-ident of the Orange
City V. I. A. Do you sulpose it is possible that the Dr. Franoes Dick-
inson is the same rcrson? You might ascertain if she belongs to the
club any way and get hor to serve. I think it never was intended to
have a separate health library- at 3eAst yet awhile. -I fear that
would be a little in advahoe of the rorven just yet. I have still no
nares to offer you except the ones mentioned in the oth-r letter.
You will remember that Dr. Porter had offered Dr. Stevens a
place as his assistant, solarPy of $1500.00 a year, to have charge
of the district nurses of the State. He is still holding this position
open for sors suggestion from me. It is needless to say that the Fed-
eration would like to fill this place. I would like to hear from you
at once before making any othei suggestion to him. Of course, Dr.
Stevens' place in this special instance would be harc:. to fill with
Dr. Porter. I suopose there is no hope of tempting you.
The Suberculosia Sanatorium at Trilby gives us a charity
bed and at present a Miss Hedick is occupying It., I am enclosing
L -







letters from an old man at Lakeland who has been rocor:rended by the
club, which, of course, always has to be the case where they take a
-patient. I have told him that'he could have the bed as soon as
she vacates same. This will make the third patient we have had in
the hospital this year. The other was a Irs. JohnsOn. Please keep
track of these -patients, the number and how long they stay, so you
can give this information in your report to the Federation. From now
on I will turn it all over to you.
If you choose to -rite me a circular letter and send six copies
for the racees, I will be very a!1l indeed to get it in next iweek, and
you can set forth the salc of st Tps, asklin club to cooperate and
a nid to you for the stamps, and also reriind them of the hospital
charity bed a:ain,because it is l2'7Ays best to hav. a name on the
waiting list, as in the past we h-ave h-d -ore trouble to get patients
to occupy the bed, due to the fact that the clubs are not sufficient-
ly informed.
'"th best of good wishes,
Sincerely,
Pre7ient.

Dear Dr. Jewett:--

I am just heart-'roken that you can not take what I consider
our nost important committee just now, because we can not do much
without means. I hope you can unload aore of your duties next year,
because we really need you badly. You will never know how r.uch I hated
to give you up, and I am Loinn to bother you once in a while 'ith a
letter any way andask your advice, althou,'h I will probably feel ashamea
evriry time I impose on you. Could you not help me su 2est someone
as a riemb.-r of that corrittee from ycur section Of course, wie will
have to get someone who is really alive and who san use the typewriter
and help :.t out letters in this behalf.
Will you please %rite rrs. Miller and giv, her all the infor-
mation you have as to unfednrated clubs, etc. She will appreciate it
I am sure and really needs the information to,get on prop rly with
her work.
Will you kindly tell ne again the date you had pla ned for
me to visit Winter Haven? The Daytona club has invitedi us there for
the next board me-ting, 1i.hich will be in February sometime, and I am
in hopes youi ill find it possible to be with Us then.

T'rs. Chas. A. Cay,
Tallahaasee, Fla.
My dear Florence:--

I agree with you to some extent ab ut the fact that it tray b
best for you not to act as chulirrtn of t:.- local cor-nittee, as it has
been customary not to ask the officers to any other '*ork except on
committees, if they choose. I am trying v:ry hard to bre-!h in a new
legislative committee Mrs. Shackleford of the club there should give
her support in the legislative -,ork any way withicut lieir? chairman
of the corm-ittee, because she has bh-rn on the committee so rany years
that it is necessary to train someone else in the work. "'e really
need to train new worsen in this line of work. We are making; changes
all ov.r the State, and it seems best to make a change there also.
You kno., she vry often opposes the very thing that the Federation
endorses, and it really place us in a very embarrassing attitude ,to
have a local co!: ittee oppose what the Federation ,wants to do. For
instance, when we were working for the Child Labor law, she was directly
o posed to sase, and if a woi an does not .ea.lize tbtt if she belongs
to an organization and the majottty of that body supports an issue,
it is her duty to work with the organization's majority, then she is
not the person best adapted for work as chairr in of, that committee.
She ~~i2l not attend the meetings and does not realize very often -:hat
leads up to these decisions, and of course it makes it doubly erbar-
raasein to have a mermbr of your most important corrittee openly and
avowedly or osed to what the Federation as a whole had decided to sup-
port. As we are changing the committee all over the state so as to
give the women on that committee two years of hard training before
the legislature meets, it seems best to me to chgnes it there also.
Mrs. John W, Si.mons here has taken the ohairranhhip. Ea. Fred Noble
of this city, chairman of the legislative committee of the WToan*'
Club, has taken the chairmanship of Sec. 4. Mrs. David Cqouhlin of
Palatka will be asked to take the vice-chairmans~ip of the State

committee. She uses the typewrit: r anM is a very active enercetio
little woman. So it se-ms to me that you can give us some very
bright woman who are int-reated in the work and can give more time
to it there, it would be better, .and then you and Mrs. Shackloford
as Board r .eribrs could work with the ccrmittee. I think this idea
best. Of course I am very much in favor of harmony and a? in hopes
of iT.aintaining it, and believe it is best for is to -vrite to Mrs.
Shaioleford and tell her ?.bout the decision as to this cc,-:.ittee work;
thaL it is rac~sary to train new women and that she -.,rd you as board
members would be there to moat with the cc:r.ittet and assist them in
many ways; but the Federation is growing and we -.uat give more women
a chance to do the work. Please in selection r names give me at least
three and impress upon them the fact that they will have to face the
legilj.ctuire and keep up with th3 ;:rork and ktr- the State chairmen in-
fcrrxed of the adv.:.noserent of bills, etc., and of course the State
Ch...i-i-n and ot'-er :.om-en fro, over the State *.;ill try to Live them all
h!lp po3sible by ap-earing before the legislature, in' I will also
when oa'.ible, .nd you and 7rs. Shackleford ;:il.3. al,.'ayE be there
reay to nme t with them and assist in every -ray po-'ible; but I think
the r,.pron-ibility should be thrown on scr.e of the other remb:rs of
the Fedcrrttion, :'nd -";e should work then in. I will avait a reply
fro:- you as to 7wh-t you think of this -lan before: writingx .r. Shack-
leford.. So plea.--e answer as .oloon as mo,3ible.

I am also wrilti.ng :r.. Levy as you ask; but, as e have not
heard frorn all the clvbs, I have been waiting: several cdays, so that
Mrs. Minium could give ire a nore correct idea of our nuiT-nbrs, as of
course I wanted it to be authentic.

Th%'re are 13 clubs ir the F3de_ ation now with a renber-.hin
of over 6000, but ho 'many over I can not tell you until our directory
is made. If you wish to use it in this way in your year-book,
please just 'phone 1Mrs. Levy, so that she will not have to wait for
the exact infor-iation. The number of clubs is correct, but I can not
Live you the exact numb-r of members in the Federation just now.i

Mrs. Tramrmell has agreed that she w*ill deliver the $50.00 #tkte
prize to the -irl making the highest record in the Ca.nning 0lub work,
and I a, very glad, as it will bring new interest into the work I
believe. They all know how you and I stand, so if as not necessary
for eith:-r of us to be present, although 'iss Harris r.t.Tr insisted
that I come up, but that is literally impossible.

Sincerely,


Pre sident.

Mrs. T. V. :core,
Vice-Pres't at Large, F. F. W. C.,
iamli, Fla,
.ly dear Kre. Moore:--

Received your last note and was very Fgl.d to hear fron: you. I am
writing especially to tell youtbat Wildwood Olub is withdraf.ing from the
Federation and nesd3 a letter from you. Also Mrs. Bessie Hickney Wood,
Pres't Civio L-ague, St.Augustine. They report that they are dyin- too,
and, as they did not pay their dues are not entitled to ,o in the year-
book. She says she just allowed her name to be used as president as a
filler. I ai, writing both clubs a'id have reported them respectively to
Miss Thorpe and Mrs. I'iller.

Can you suggest somebody who would be splendid for the endowment
chairman.? This is the only chairmanahip I have vacant no'.'. I would
like someone who can use a typewriter or who will get the letters out,
bs.caua it is Loin, to be quite a job to keep the clubs worked up. You
will remember that w- were to exchange the land we received from the '.odel
Land Co. as endowment with the State that adjoined the park. In making
up the deeds for exchange the State required an abstract on the :Todel
Land Ccorpany lands. They did not have an abstract to furnish us, so 1.r.
Jennings wrird MTr. J. N. Lummus forabstract. He is in the Abstract Co.
there in Yiari. He charged us ?14.50 for same, and Mr. Jennin.- has sent
him a check for this amount, -.hich, of course, the F-der.Aticn will have
to pay. I'r. Jennings wrote an opinion for us on the abstract, wbich the
Board in Tallahassee agreed to accept, the Governor taking the deeds him-
self and proisaing to see that they are properly signed and returned to
me. Mr. Jennings, of course, makes no charge for the opinion on the
abstract. This is like 'r. IToore's stamps that you told me abc.ut. To7r
what I want you to see if yowcan not do is to see Mr. Lummus at once and
-e't him to donate the a:.stradt and return the check for .14.50 or the
ie aLmounbt with a receipted bll to M1r. Jenninlna for the Fed.r..ation. You
I no-rDest now o manage tis and I *will leave it to you.

Mrs. T. V. M.-2.


You ill pleacse sre that Mrs. Leight i'onroe did not turn over the invi-
tation and the wire frc;, ITri Beck'-ith about transportation for our next
convention. It would be a great help to me to 'hbve this tele-r,' to use
in tettinr : rtes over the other roads.

With wazrnmst re srds a.nd ~ s3aaon's greetings,

iTra. Kirk Minree,
Coconut Grove, Fla.
IMy dear Mrs. ITunroe:--

I will send you envelopes as soon as possible and also see that
you ret the '10.00 from Miss Jackson.
The address of MIrs. H. S. Je/nison, Press Chairran, is 119 W.5th
St., Jacksonville, Fla.; that of Mrs. W. F. Miller, Vice-Pres't, Seo.l,
is Valrico, Fla.
Possibly Dr. Jewett could help you best ab.ut selecting a com-
mittee member from Sec. 1.
The Palmetto Club is a new club that has just come into the
Federation with a new Carnegie Library that the w.onen have been in-
strumental in getting down there. They have a memr.brship of over
100 in the club and Mrs. J. A Lamb is president. There is a T'rs.Waite
S in that club/ who is an exceedingly bright woman, and she would be
just splendid for that committee, but I do not knor her initials. I do
not knoq, however, but what a member of the Woran's Club in Tampa,
Lakelapd or Bartow, which are proba, ly older clubs, miiht suit you
bett r. Mrs. Ellis, of course, is not on any committee now that I
know ofr She was press chairman and is a v-ry bright woman but has
to write ,for ragazines and is so busy with that I fear she would d not
be of much service to you. Mrs. Beekman, of course, was already on
your committee from Sec. 1. These are only sul estions. You know
the iworen as '.)ell as I do and probably better and will very likely be
abi3e to select just whom you would wqnt yourself.
SI am very much obliged to you for su testing Mrs. Holt as chair-
man of legislation, but she found the civic work too heavy for her
and, of course, the legislative work requires a great deal of letter
writing and she does not use the typewriter, and I feel sure she would
not have'accepted same, although I have already appointed Mrs. John
Simmons here.
with best wishes and greetinLs of the season,

Sincerely,

4U.. I ... President.

Mrs. Florence P. Hayde-,
Coconut Grove, Fla.

1y dear Yrs. Hayden:--

I am very glad indeed that you sent the article, but am not
sure that I acknowledged its receipt, and I am going to ask you to
write the other article as soon as possible giving Mrs. Kirk 'unroe
the credit for first su:-gesting Royal Palm Park. I think she is very
much hurt, judging from -That she said to me, that we did not say that
in your article at the Federation, but I told her you had to go to the
Sunday School Convention and did not have time; that you would soon
write such an article, however, for me. She now says that this is
not the palm hammock she had in mind or that Mr. Ingraham had in view,
but I knotv this is positively the park that Mr. Inrgraham had in mind,
and I think on account of the survey she is mistaken in her location,
and we will just give her credit for first su getting this park with-
out any reference to the other part of it, because I feel sure this
is the largest tract of Royal palms in the United States. "r. J-nnings
and Mr. Inrrahar both have h-.d it surveyed and have had searching
parties on the lookout for it.
I have written Mrs. Gifford of her appointment as chairman,
knd I was not sure whether you told me you would work on the co-nittee
with her or not, but that you had offered to help in every -ray possi-
Sble. I will leave the arrangement with you and her as to how she fixes
her committee.
Let me have the article on the park as soon as possible,
S please, and make it as fll aad pn ht1iastic as you can. I imagine we
will have to keep the public well informed to keep the enthusiasm up
to the proper notch.
Tith thanks and best wishes and greetings of the season,

Very sincerely,


President.



























Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 4th, 1915.

Miss Ceoelia Robinson,
Associate editor, "Journal",
gehacoli, Fla.
My de.-r ITi.3 Robinson:-

I I..s exceedingly busy when your letter arrived pr'p-:ring for
the Feadr-tion convention, wrhich is no arall. task I aseurT you. After
the general rotitine of :;pointing chairmen and asi:tin, in the preparation
of cooiittes for the following year's work, I am at last at y:z.:r letter
a&ain. I wish it were posa.ible for me to atep) into the Journal office
and explain more fully than I can "rrite our position in re Guar- to our
State news. 7e are trying : v-ry hard to have a definite space in*-.ch
section in one paper. Section 5 has two whole pages in diff :ret -.prs
the Tilami Metropolis and the Orlando Reporter-Star. I un.derstcod from
Mr. Barrow that Te mwow d at least be gr- nted a half a page with our own
Federation he in.: at the top of such page, and published either Saturday
or Sunday, the latter preferred, which seems5as to tii ean, entirely agree-
able to? your ~p .r; but you seem to '-ant to over our newi in y.ur society
page, -.:ich, of ocurse, is all rifdht as far aq publi-iity, oes 'ut does
not give us the %:romrinence we desire and which we co- ld'onsaciontiously
cjrry on cur press st:.ff when other pap-prs are giving g us so rmuch more.
We appreci.-te very r.uch indeed cthe courtesy of the Journal and all the
space th,-y have Liven us and realize that the financial oondiiKcns have
made it h..rd for everyone thin year. However, I would like some definite
arrangement with yc-r r aper as to space and also that it carry the heading
to be found in the Snd..y TimesgUnion, or the other pages, if you will
kindly refer to them, which will give yru an idea propbly more clearly
than I can hereo~what I am trying to explain to you.
7hile -we very ruoh regret losing the space in the paper in ?Insacola,
as that Seo. 3 of our Federation is not as strong as -:e hope 'o rake it
during' the next':; two years, with, of ocurse, the help of the Lood club
worn there, it will be uele:s for us to send the same quantity of copy
to ycur paper as -e do to the others unleGs we w.r7i sure it would be
used, as y.u know enough about such :7ork to realize that it costs money
to have copy made. In a great many States the papers pay for this -ork











ijss c. P-a.

and are glad to get it.
The copy always leaves here Tuesday in time for the 5 P. M. train,
and if you have not the cory in hand, it certainly is Mrs. 7onaclkr's
fault settainly not mine, and when you speak of the attitude, I think
you will realize that the F d ration has tried more than it is its part
to do or that could beexpeo d to meet both the club wonen Sar your paper
half way. I hl-ve sent'copy since the space 'r-.s granted each --:k myself,
in addition to what the press chairman has sent, and yet I do not think
I have rc-c-ived one pap-r that has given us space that we could consider
Fed-ration space in the paper, in fact no more than other rap're in the
State are doing that aeam not carried on our staff.
rat-urall I concluded that Iriob2L, ly ycur pap-r did not w--nt the
copy and advised 'rs. Bonacker to see if the other paper wanted it. It
is needless to rrnind you that if we had not -.nter the s9: .c in the
Journal, we would have originally sought the ":-s" instead, -nd. this
seems sufficient proof of our preference I should think.. I am very sorry
indeed that Ti3. Randall made remarks that werls ill advise., .*3 she f
usually is very conservative, and this is the first instance :-here ahe
spo'~e'before a club where I have heard any such complaint. I ar therefore
forced to .ond7o ,r if they, her listeners, may not have rmsintrrpreted her.
meaning, ,..nd probably they may have been in a very critical meod for some
reason of which I am not infcrned. You gave gen-rous csp :-r-3nd ypWr
Trite-ups of her visit 7cv- splendid, but a great many of the State papers
give such publicity to our work and appreciate the fact that we are try-
inL. to work with then, not agAinst there in any sense of the word. We owe
a great de.l of the aucoces of our work to the generosity of the press
pf the State and do not hesitate to give there: credit whenewti r possible
and the c:r'ortuhity presents itself.
I would be ;laa.see. if you could send ne an issue of y:--r paper
hiiich you be;an in ioveriber and the space allotted the Federation, and I
would be ;leaeoA to know if this space is to bi uncd r our own Fede-.T.ticn
headi-n, as is o-.rji~d in other ;ap-~s, for us,and what day of the !,-lk
it would appear, Saturday or Sunday. 7e of course as- the club Iomen
nearest the page is.3u:d to subscribe for seme and in ever y ay possible
endeavor to support such paper We can not do this unless e 1know the
day this pa or half page i, to a-.pear. "e are now getting our commit-
%tees -e:dy for our year-book, an:. ovr prean staff will have to be arranged
also with 211tors, and we must kno. the apace your r-pur is Ailling to
allot us and under our o~'n heading, as wre can not carry it nl?3" it is
und-r our own Federation heading, although we will deeply appreciate any
spaaew you may gr=nt us fror. time to time undr other oircur~tances as
occasion may arise. Of course, if lirs. Ponacker does not wish to continue
and get the cory to y:u promptly, p'-rhaps she aon su--est ec-r,.-c? w1ho
would be willing to undertake the work for the club there on behalf of
the Federation. You mirht succeed in getting someone who und:.-rtands
newspaper work more thoroughly and would be more satisfactory to ybar paper.
