to (et rock for the road beds from tie rook .lou1- on either side of
the r--rk, and not fr!-* the edoe. He will :.rsonally see to this. and
;-con his men, and see to t.e protection of our big tree. 'xMr'. Tennings

SPierce has -3'rrc1d to do, wo -d be sufficient, and we t phink this ,would
protect the park white they mre in it, and w il take great pride in being
careful for us.

Mrs. J. D. "andall,
Vice President Section 2, FF.P .C.
Lawtey, Flrl.

'y dear 'rs. Randall:-

I am w~ry sorry indeed that you have been so
ill, and hope that you are feeling entirely recovered by now.
I wish to congratulate you O6 getting Lake
Butler in. T1is makes two that we 'ave on file for our board meet-
ing.
I will write to Live Oak to be sure about my an-
pointlent with them, but I =a almost certain tiat they asked ea for
the 18th originally, although the 28th will suit me just as well,
I do not see why we cannot visit 'adison, Jasper, and Lake City just
as well, I would like to cover tat little corner up there immediate-
ly after our meeting. Tallaassee wants me on tBh 13th of January,
and I dislike very much to make this lohg trip without some hope of
some other meeting, and it may be that I can get Mrs. Gay to make an
engagement with uuilncy, Quincy has a large elub, and I have tried so
hard to get them to come in, but have not succeeded, aid I think a
personal visit will be the only way. You know Hig! Springs belongs
to you also, and try to arrange to over all t:at corner by then.
I think we bette have .* "-moo "ting before t'at time, otherwise
we will not have time to cover this territory before the first of Feb-
ruary, and I must have the meetings arranged then so that I can be
back at home. Our Board meeting will be held in Daytona, but I am
not sure of the date yet. Am glad the Live Oak people are making big
plans, and hope we will have a splendid meeting,
With love and best wishes, and greetings of the
season,
Sincerely,


President.

,Mrs. GChas. A Cay,
Vlc Preaidant Section 3, F.PW.'C.
Tallahassee, Fla.

My dear E:rs. Gay:-

I em enclosing you a copy of letter I have written
to "rs. Levy.
Could you arran...e to go to Quincy on the 14th, and
probably a meeting of the women in Montlsello for the 15th, Saturday,
to see if we cannot organize a meeting there. There has come to me
some reports about the expressions of desire for a club at 7ionLicello,
w'0ch seems to make known the need for such. Vys. Byrd tVere is the
proper party to write to, although l rs. Turnbull might assist I think,
if you know her so well. I feel sure if we have a meeting of the
women, we can organize them. I will bring the constitution and by-laws,
to be ready. Of course, I want you to accompany me on these trips, and
we should arrange for county meetings in both these places, tTen I can
give you more time in March for the rest of the section. Please let
me hear from you as soon as possible.
1i go to liami tomorrow to be back in about three or
four days. Please see if you can make these arrangements forus to hold
meetings. I am anxious for your section to make a big showing this
year, and I t''ink if we can meet the women personally, we can do so tuch
more. At least, this is the way it has been done everywhere else.
Lots of love and the season's greetings,
Sincerely,



President.

V"y dear MJrs. Loore:-

You are certainly a worker. I az returning this
voucher to you as it is made to you, and I think you will have to sign
it and collect the money before we can get it, but as I am to be in

turn same over to me to give to "r. Je n ings for his advance, and I will
send the receipted bill to Miss Jackson, and explain to her t;-at we nave
a present of t'is work.
I expect to leave here tomorrow on the one o'clock
train for Miami, but it may be nig.:t before I ge t away. -e expect to
go to the lake at once wit:" t"e Bryan's, which will take two days, and
then to the park. I w ill phone you as soon as I get a breathing spell,
but we will be out with t2!e 3ryan's.
.While I am there, I wold like to consult with Mrs.
Giffcrd about tie park, but I want you to be there at tne conference,
and talk the park matter over. "rs. Gifford is perfectly splendid.
and I am ordering a mile of dimes now w-ich will give us 26336.00. These
strips, I will send to all the clubs for Mr. Gif ford as chairman. I am
also having printed some trespass notices on clot;, to tack up in t:e
park, wf ich you reLlember Dr. Byrd has promised to do for us, and I will
bring them wit'>, me. le can talk the matter of signs later.
Mre Randall writes me t-.at Lake Butler has come
in, but did not send tieir.check with application. She will write back
for same.

thLat she need not send yoa quite so much copy far your page 'e had
understood tat it would not be an eni.lre page, but I had inoped, and
do yet, that your father can continue to give us the full' nge with
tle Federation -eac~ing at ts s time, as he has done An tle past.
We are anxious to carry the Banner as t'- page from Section 2, and
we could not do this with just a section of a page, and on all the
other papers we have in the state, we are using our own heading.
The space granted in the paper has been entirely satisfactory, and we
have been delighted with it, and desire to express again our appreci-
ation,
Mrs. Mirmium's name Is Harry B, not Henry. Or,
maybe it wns not your rpae in which I saw this error.

I :ill leave here toLor.oror for Viafmi, coing
i!..edilately to the lale with the Pryan'a, ..d then one day to the
park. We will be their Tg, csts while in "'laurii, and on account of
being so far' out, it will be a little difficult for me to see you,
but i am going to phone you ard try to nv.ke an engagement and see
you while there.
Any..;y you arrange y3ur committee, will be en-
tirely satisfy atory to re. I understand .rs. Gary is quite capable,
and is in charge of home econormicswcrk in Ocala I expect :'rs.
Carson is very busy.
I hope you are having Food reports of i'iss
Keown's .orck, and that tie women are giving her good support every-
where.
I think you should not forget that tie department
work belongs to the official organs, the six Federation pages, and
when the chairmen Lave anything to comriunicate, it should go t' rough
the press department, and not be given to local papers, even if that
paper does carry a Federation page. The letter of "iss Johnson was
to you as chairman, and she wanted same published, and it should have
been given to all the pages, not to one local paper, because our work
in no sense is local entirely, but must be given to all the papers
in the state the same time, otherwise we will be accused of partiality
to one Pection or the otier. I t. ink you will agree with me about this
last. We could still use the letter if.you wish to send same, but you
should furnish six copies, and tell irs. Jenison what paper you put
same in, so that she would not send it to that one again.
Please send me a complete list, with initials and
full addresses of each one of your members of your committee as soon
as your comL-ittee is complete. Please do not ask but one from each sec-1
tion, and you can be the member from Section 5. We must get our commit-
tees down some, as number allowed in by-laws is from three to five.
With warmest regards, best wishes, and the season's greetings,

Jacksonville, Fla.,
Dec. 16th, 1915.

Dr. J. Y. Porter,
State Health Officer,
Jacksonville, Fla.
?y dear sir:-

I have made several efforts over the phone to make an
appointment to meet you, but have been unsuccessful, as you were absent
from the city, and I am writing to ask you some questions as to what
would be required of your assistant.
Dr. Grace Whitford, whom you probably kr.ow, who lives at
Oaona, Fli.., is an exceedingly bright, quick woman. I am greatly pleas-
ed with her, and feel sure you must have been if you have met her. She
has accepted the health chairmanship of the Federation, and is pursuing
the sale of Red Cross Stamps for tuberculosis work with great vigor.
The women of the Federation are delighted with her. She has served sev-
eral years on Dr. Stevens committee. I think the women of the Federation
would be very glad to have her appointed to the assistant's place, which
you offered Dr. Stevens. I have watched her very closely, and invetigated
thoroughly, but make this augrestion to you because I feel that the Feder-
ation will be responsible to you and to the state for our representative.
I think Dr. 7itford cwuld be splendid in the position, and whan I men-
tioned same to her, she said she wo-rld like to know what would be required
of her before she could answer. She wodld like to know if she would have
to move to Jacksonville. She could always come to you in half a day
for consultation, and could meet you iL Tampa for a conference. "'7~uld
there be ruch travelling to do, and could she direct the work from her
office in Ozona. Of course, this all means if you would consider our
presentation of her name at all.
I certainly do appreciate very much indeed, and so do the
women of the Federation, your consideration of them, in fie tiLn them to-
the appointment of this assistant, and we are grateful torou for this
privilege. We are anxious to cooperate with you in the state work, and
stand ready at all times to serve you. Of course, we realize that ;':e
have lost our opportunity in a way in not being able to consider this
matter at once, and deeply appreciate your kindness in waiting for oon-
sultat.ion before making any appointment.

mette, but I have been compelled to wait the complete announcement of
cha&imsn on accouht of some vacancies, and now. at the last minute, my
forestry chairman is in doubt as to her continuance of the work. You
oee, the n.nes of t;h coh.Uirmern all have to go on the letter heads.
'here is really no use for you t o to the expense of getting
paper for your department, unless you personally wish it, as the Fed ra-
tion will furnish you aith all the stationery you will need. I did have
som done nmyelf one year, but Ihen tnere is so much expense anyway, un-
lees Nou junt feel like it, I do a c think it is necessaryt cwever,
thio yeu.r, I would ask ~ ri committee mcmbars for at least Q2.00 each or
a little more to'wards Ethe expenae of the committee. This will keep the
entire burden from fall.ing on you, and will.give you some money for the
&eaflet on political science if you wish it. The leaflet I had publish-
ed for the lit ratuo departmon-.cost ':.O0 for 350, and you might have
to ask your committee mscT.iers for more. The Federation wolnd not hesi-
tate to pay ,ome of the expense of this if you could not make it all up
from your co-n.ittee, but for this raaso, it wiht be well for you not
to assk our committee until yon: k up your Rind about this, then you
could ask them for a little rorm.,
Just use any plain papar until I can Let the paper to you,
which I e -.'tin.ly hope will not be more than ten days. I was just about
ready to have it printed, he n this resignation I speak of appeared.
It nas been impossible so far to get a chairman for the endow-
ment fund, so I am going to let the officers do the work tfhi year, and
at the end of t at time we may have so much money on hand, t'at it will
not be hard to get a chairman to serve.
You will find '-. Tra mnnell's talk Aid tbe cann.in club record
in last Sunday'3 Times UTnion, but not on Lt'e federationn page. It rvill
be in full T suppose, in Sunday's Tr.va TimeS You will want the rame
of' the girl ao "ion t-e prize in vyour little account book. It is Eula
ifrantham, of Duval County, Fla. She won our i50.00 state prize, and
also the banker's. i have saked for the 'wir:ner of the boy's corn prize,
but have not received san yet.

?y dear l'rs. .iolt:-

Your letter was received, and I beg to thank you
for s ame.
there was not any indication on my part in my
letter to make you feel that you had not done your full duty. I
:had also asIed Mpr. -tumne myself to forward his bill, and did not 'sar
anythinCg frorT him. It seems we cannot force people to write letters
when they wont.
Your cooperation has been splendid, and I wish to
tal this opportunity to express my appreciation far your unfai ing
promptness in all matters, and assistance. Of course, the newness of
the work will make it :.rd for "rs. ia ndley, and I am sorry things
happened as they did, and reo'et .that you could not let me know soon-
er.
Mrs. Goodhue, I am sending you today, and I hope it
will not be much trouble to you, but I thought it would be a good
time for her to reach the country people at this time.
With best f 'ood wishes to you and "'r. Holt, and

No. 16th, 1915.

Sras. J. 0. 'rirgt,
Chairman Poreatry, F.FU.C.
Zal.-:ocd, FI.L,

ly dear h;a. ri 3t:-

It occurs to re that you are extremely sensative,
and I am certainly disappointed and surprised to get a reaitnauion from
you at this time, and at this late date, lwhen you must r:jlize that I am
triyinj my :be,?t to get my year book out before the first of the year. I
1.v .A.lroea dy sent your name to the directory, and of ocrsea,, had counted
on you for the work.
I had hope-l to arrarxe the endowirient find committee,
on -,ich I shc-mcld probably need so-e of your mernbers, U.nd I cannot tell
you just yet who Mrs, Gifford has asked to serve on her oom~rittae, but
youi must realize that I colld not continue to do as much fork for the pakk
as I have drons, and it r.ea.ly -eedus a icairma. on the g:rounmd -ho could via-
it the park, especially now, as there is road building .-oinf on.
I succeeded in havingr the board pass a resolution
Grant1in the exchange of land, and vFe have signed our dtcd and sent it
on, 1-ut the trustees have not sent our deed yet. You re:Alizo that the
park is conservation rrork, and takes in forestry, i,ood roads, waterway,
bir'd protection, and should be arranged under a special *iormiltee, so
that all of these committees cou'd have something to say about it, and
make au ._eations about the ';ork, which of course, will be expected. You
hc-e a very gigantio proposition before your committee, in the planting
of the Dixie Highway from one end to the ot er, as well as the other
hichiT-ys in the state. The Georgia women, under Mrs. Fitzpatrick's
leadership, are organizinc special oomnittees in esah club for this special
planting, tnd I think you woiild find your bec:s more than full for this
work. At least, I had hoped as ling as you tad this .-ork in hand, that
we could accomplish more in forestry in the next two years tla~lwe have
been able to accomplish before.
I will leave for 'iari tomorrow, and will visit the
park while there, and am having posters made now, but not the signs yet.


L, I I I


I i" I r I I r I


- ,






I;ra. J. 0. W. 3

I will confer with l.re. Gifford, and find out who she has on her commit-
tee, and let you kloow. Of course, you realize we can only have one from
each section, except probably for this park work, and you can have five
on your conrmnttee of your own selection. I think there would be -;o
doubt but that you could have most of your own committee.
If you object to -erving as chairman of the committee, just
because you have new neimbers, I 'ot'ld like to know what you think of me
who has to gct a nvow chairman every fesi minutes. You will find, if you
will stop to consider, that therere e a great many of the reports that
have not been published yet. 7o are publishing them along as fast as
possible, as they are always good reading, but we have to publish the
current stuff like club report-a every now and then, to relieve the looks
of the '.b0, Lub all chairmfen's reports will be published, and I think
that if you will stop to :onsidar, that you will find that very few of
the department reports have been published yet, just the officers, and
really not all of these.
Of course, if you re..ly do not c.-re to do the work, I will
have to accept your resinmat.ion, ihuf I think under the circumstances,
when you haves tiaited so l6ng to notify eie, that you must feel that you
should keep it. There is a great deal to do if you will do it, and I
would be very gl.:1 to have you reconider this, but please let me know
at once, "'::ccaus: I can-not hold up Lhe whobe year book as I did last year
becau-se I did not have a chairman, and it is not fair to those who have
to come after and serve, not to'have their names in the book if they have
to shoulder the work.
I regret very iuch that I did ",ot see you. I w as at bhe
house all the time, and I cannot understand %,hy you could not reach me.
I heard after you were here that you hlad een here., and thought it very
stran_. tii.,t you did not call ne up.
The oark of course,, has to be financed, and we are Aoinj to
try to raise a mile of dimes at once. Thi. will entail nuch letter writ-
i- and Iork. I am very sorry indeed that you feel as you do about the
work, and I think really, it is unjust to nae, because neither of us could
handle the park at such long diistaioe just now, arnd I think you will agree
with ne !bhat we M.ust havo nsomz one on the ground. The last repoorts are
that people are stealing the ;talma, and .e are very anxious to Cat some
ono as oare t:.:ser. I had written you about this change befor.a, :;nd I
tlou Iht of course, that you were perfectly Ti3ring to shift the responsi-
bility, and I had hoped, -with the relief .from your department with this
,,work, that you could push the bi;ghway planting more as they are doing in
Gebrgia. I really do not think t -at you need r.esign beoa.uoe Liere is
no work to do, because tLeroe is a world of work in Forestry if one wishes
to devote their time to it.
Please send ,!e a letter at once in answer to this, care of
Green Tree, Viari, Fla.
With love to you and Helen, and warmest regards to the Lajor,
in v'which Mr. Jer-ings joins, and with the season's greetings,
Sincerely,


President.

I :ave been t"ryi n- .my best to get to your letter
for sevt-'al days, byt as I had some otier engagements, I wao obliged to
re-,djust my program a little befce I co-ld accept your invitation,
ian. I am now telling :.u that I will be present with the "'ope tiat
"rs. Cay can sanke some ot'c-r .r'oint.;enrLs also in her section, so
I wculd -.t ,ave to make such a long trip fsr j..st one sin.rle club
iMeeting. I apfrcclote ery much y(uar wanting me, aard tLank you for
t: invitation. I will probably come by the morning of t;e 19th,
and be t ere for the af-ernoon meeting.
I ai~ in hopes that you ean arrange t: s to be a large
county meeting, and invite tVe federated and unfederated olubs in your
county, and also the women in locations where you feel sure a club
Aif:'.t be organized. It is usually customary in a greeting like t;is
to iave the visiting president's of clubs make a repoBt from tier
club. It is my hope to roach as imay women as possible on t':ese vis-
its, to try to swell the numbers c t'I Federation. I regret very
much t at could nrt giwe you more definite information for your
year book as to the Federation nurj;ers. Our directory is not quite com-
plete yet. It is hard to set the clubs to answer letters.
Titj tie season's greetings,
Since -r y,

Mrs. W. S. Jenning s

President,' Florida Federation of omen's Clubs,

Jacksonville," Fla.

My dear Mrs. Jennings:

Your letter of December 16th I find on my desk this morning,

and I wish to make prompt answer and to thank you for your courteous

attention to my requests and suggestions.

I have no acquaintance with Dr. Grace Whitford except

possibly a passing one, as I might have met her at Lakeland last year

during the annual meeting of the Federation. She may be a very

bright woman from all I know, and I am quite willing to accept your

estimate of her judgment and ability; but the impediment, if I may

use the word, to her being appointed one of my assistants in charge

of the'nurse squad in the campaign against tuberculosis, would be

her non-residence at Jacksonville. She should live here, so that

she could be in constant touch with the executive office, not with

me officially so much, as the office itself, because the reports of

the field nurses come to the office, should be analyzed there and

summarized, together with recommendations for improvement.

In selecting Dr. Stevens I recognized a woman of rare

ability in that line of work. Not only being professionally quali-

fied, she possessed ample knowledge of sociological conditions which

would enable her to direct and push a campaign such as we are trying


I '' I II I I I I





Shept 2, Mrs. W. S. Jennings Dec. 17, 1915







to make against tuberculosis in the State by ferreting out cases,

giving advice, and rendering assistance toward such betterment as

repeated visits to the patient might bring about. Dr. Whitford,

living at Ozona on the west coast, could hardly be in touch with

the office here, nor could I be expected to make frequent visits

to Tampa in order to consult with her; and notwithstanding her

capability, which you vouch for, and her interest in the work, yet

I think you will appreciate the fact that I have mentioned is

decidedly objectionable to an acceptance by her of the position of

supervising nurse, or to my offering the same.
I should very much like to see you and talk with you

on this matter, because I could enter more into details and the

intricacies of the subject better than I can write. I shall be

going home for the Christmas holidays on Monday and will not be

back for two weeks, but when I return I will make it a point to

call you up over the 'phone and request you to give me an appoint-

ment with the Woman's Club, so that, with Mrs. Frank Jennings, I

may talk over the subject with you.

Expressing regret that you were not able to catch me

over the 'phone at the times you called, but that I may have the

pleasure of a conversation with you at no distant date, I am,
Yours very truly, y


Health Officer.

Mr3. i, L. MoTnEasie,
Panas. Oity, Fla.

My dear 'rs M3Koenie:-

I have phoned our city library here to send you'
a booh on the P;.s.ion Play, ,ich t.ihe- ill .send mot "t ounce. I regret
delay in ge Lttig thin of, to you, but I have been so rushed with other
thirns that it has teen i;pc.jAib.e to ;:et to this soonr.
I hlpe you riji find soeIthing in the book that
you ,Ant fOr yoVu ptpeSr. I falt sure tbhv i7t would he no use to send
yCtu' : Lt.it.r to Ithe infornm.-.tion bire au, a-a they would not i-_rave e..ny+thig
you ~?oulJ. want, but I wish urhen y:;U finish your paper, you :rculd send
severJ. t;ypeiritten co.,ies to Ers. Kirk Muiroe, Bureau of Infor-.,ticn
& Historian, F.r.T.C., Coccnut Grove, FIa., as it right be of -r-mtt bene-
fit to the women of the state. I couldd advise getting legal size paper
and cutting it in two, as it makes it easier to read, and a little rore
handy to handle in olub meetings.
Mrs. J, 7. M.oCoullum, Oh~srrman of Industrial ?JId
Social Conditions, F.F.W.C., Gaineaville, writes me that she has written
your club president, and probably you, for a member for her committee, and
has had no response. Will you kindly look into the matter, %nd see that
she gets an immediate reply.
I hope to be over in your section some time in
March, and hope that your olub oan arrange a big county meeting of Feder-
ated and unfederated Clubs, and also the women who would probably organize
a club in their section. Mrs. Charles Cay, vice president of your seo-
tion, will make arrangements for these meetings.
Will you please see that this book is returned
to the library promptly, and stamps for mailing sent them.
With Christmas greetings,
Sincerely,


President.

Dear Club Members and Co-workers:-

In this beautiful season of good cheer, of giv-
ing and receiving, I am sending this little message of
greeting and asking that you consecrate yourselves again
more entirely than ever before to "service". We must
work for a more perfect continuity of purpose and accom-
plishment.

During the past year, we have swelled our mem-
bership 1332, giving us 6340 total membership in 108
clubs, We federated 29 clubs last year, and have two ap-
plications now on hand waiting for the February Board
meeting, which is invited to be the guests of the Palmetto
Club at Daytona. Your president's aim is for a membership
of 10,000 in the next two years. If every club member
will charge herself with the duty of bringing into her
club at least one new member during the coming year, we
could double the membership of the Federation very soon,
Will you not all lend your efforts to the club extension
committee for a little while, and reap the reward of
greater results accomplished by the bringing into the
field of action a larger force of workers?

Our sister State, Georgia, has 25,000 club
women. This should give us an incentive to carry on a
never ceasing membership campaign. Mrs. Pennybacker, our
splendid national leader,-has said that while we have two
million women in the General Federation, in reality we
should have five million. There are in Florida consider-
ably more than double our membership, of eligible women
who would enjoy the work should we seek them out.

Over $800.00 was raised at the DeLand convention
towards our State endowment. Our final aim is $25,000.00,
as it would take this amount to yield a sufficient inter-
est to help in the-ma'intenance and care of the Royal Palm
State Park, and supply funds to assist in the current ex-
penses of the Federation's departments of work.


'' I 1 I r 'I sl r I r


r I I I I I








#2.


In February, we are going to send out an ap-
peal to all the clubs to assist in raising money towards
this endowment fund. It will probably be several years be-
fore we can reach the desired amount, but we must add to
this fund as fast as possible.

In a few weeks now, we will send out strips a
foot long, and these strips are dime holders. It is the
Royal Palm Park Committee's intention to ask each club to
take as many of these strips as possible, and get the pub-
lic to fill them. This is a State Park, and all the people
of the State should be given an opportunity to help in its
care. We hope to raise a mile of dimes in the coming year.
This would give us $6336.00. We need a care taker and a
residence, or lodge at once, and we feel sure that every
club woman in Florida is enthusiastic over this splendid
work of preserving this wonderful bit of tropical growth.

Last, but not least, let us each and every one,
not only plant and beautify our own premises, but enlist
every citizen of Florida in a movement to make Florida
worthy of the name "Land of Flowers," with the determina-
tion that it "shall be known" as the garden spot of the
world. "Florida Beautiful" should be every citizen's
slogan.

I have been asked by the officials and department
chairman to impress upon the club officials that the year
books and all letters sent by them to these officers, are
for the clubs, and that all letters should be read to the
club members, and literature kept accessible for their use.

With the old world at war, we are forced to pause
and consider with sadness the fearful condition of our
European sisters. Our Christmas joys must yield to the
spirit of thanksgiving that our country is at Peace.

Our prayers must span the ocean in a petition for
Peace for those who suffer great privations on account of
the war. Let us beg of our Master the gift of"Peace on
earth, good-will towards man,"for our suffering sister
countries.

May the New Year be the harbinger of Peace to the
entire world.

Faithfully and sincerely yours,



President.
Florida Federation of Women's Clubs.

Jacksonville, Fla.,
Dec. 27th, 1915.


Mrs. John Gifford,
Chlairman Park Committee, P.F.F.C.
Coconut Grove, Fla.

My dear Yrs. Gifford:-
I 'have been looking over the plan that Dr. Simp-
son drew for the house, and I wish to make some suggestions to you about
same. I think it will be better, a s we spoke of there, to uirild a tem-
porary residence for our care taker, which would answer tUe purpose of
a house for helpers later. The plans for the grounds should reserve
a location far thi s also. I th ink we might build such a house for three
or four hundred d dollars, using the rough twelve inch boards end wise, and
,, ng same,1usin' plain or smooth side of lumber inside, and the porch
and the rest of the house could be screened, and I will try to get such
a plan arranged shortly. Maybe, I can get some architect here to donate
the plans, then I can submit same to you. This could be located quite
a little way from tVe main building, but to be in calling distance, and
of course, raised frcm the ground, then I think the garage should be
built of galvanized iron, and be a little way from the house on account
of fire.
The plant house and wrk rooms for same should be
separate en account of great dampness, although in sight of where we ex-
pect te put our main buildings. On account of the risk from fire, I
do not think it advisable to use the end portion of the house for a gar-
age, nor do I think it advisable to have the plant house so near. Of
course, it will mean a little more expense in .the end, as roofing costs,
but I iacxana think we had better build with the future in view, and take
all matters into consideration. I will send maps in a few days.
There is one very fine royal palm as you will re-
member on the right edge of the road, just as you go into the hammock.
My idea in planting the park would be as I suggested there, to begin
our royal palm planting on the opposite side of the road, and plant them
all along our drive way, allowing ample distance from the edge of the
road, so that they would not be toe close, and continue tiis planting,
npt only through toe park, but through our endowment property. I think
the medium si e flower alamanders would be nice to plant between the








#2-- tMrs. J.G.


trees, and we mif t be able in some parts of the drive to get the senti-
nel cactus like the one which grows by the back door of 1"r. Bryan's
home. It occurred to me that t-is would look very stately and majestic,
then where the palms grow thickest in the park, to cut a foot path from
one clum of palms to t:,e other, as Dr. simpson has suggested before. I
noticed that the ham:neck was rather divided in one place, not showing
up such a jungle of growth. You will remember the strip probably, and
it had occurred to me tiat as the park is nearly a mile and a half long,
it mic:ht be better to have a wide drive through this section from one
end to the other, and the foot paths could lead to and from same so that
people might drive to the end of the read, and walk back through the
grounds. I also think we should take into consideration the drive com-
pletely around the hammock in our future plans.
I think the committee sho.,ld be advised by you ta study the
Java Gardens, and if you can secure a book on same that you like especial-
ly, it miA:.t be well to get same and pass it around from one member of
the committee to the other. Let them study up en tropical gardens some,
so they will be of some assistance to you. V yau, t J- /'- '.I "I; ..
I am sending te bill cf $12.00(te Miss Jackson for dim
slips, and expect they will be forwarded to me at once. It seems by the
way you folks took slips down there though, that I will have to order
another thousand or more.
If you will ask Yr. ey D. Marsh, the surveyor, Homestead,
Fla., ;-eo lives on the read to the park, and has done a grete deal of
surveying for Mr. Jennings, has furnished me several maps, and offered
his assistance, I think he will be glad to help Dr. Gifford, and Dr.
Simpson ii note@ en hand, which I t.ink he will gladly furnish. Of
course, if he goes on the ground and has to work, we will have to pay
hi: for sa3 ea please do not forget that he was an applicant for this
position,/ so will have to be very careful how we use his :ood offices,
and not require very much of him, but I really think he will be glad to
furnish any information h-e can about the land to the committee to help
in drawing the plans. I will write him that yio may call on him to assist
Dr. Gifford and Dr. Simpson, and thank him for his offer.
As soon as I secure the deed which i hope will be soon, I
will ask them to have their surveyor set the corner stakes, which. will
help us considerably with our plans.
Mr. Jennings will go to Tallahassee in a few days, ad will
get the deed then, I feel sure. Mr. George C. Pierce, Atlantic National
Bank Building, Jacksonville, is the engineer and representative of the
McCrary Company, who have the contract to build the read through the
park, and I am writing him a letter today, copy of w -ich I am enclosing
you far yair information. I am asking him to give you a letter to the
man who will be superintendent of construction of the read. He has
displayed great interest, and I feel sure he will help us in every way
possible.
Tith warmest regards and best wishes for the New Year,
Sincerely,



Pre side nt.

Mrs. John Cifford,
Chairman Park Coimmittee, F.F C.
Coconut Grove, Fla.

!'y dear Mrsc Gifford:-
I was very mBch delighted with our meeting
the other day, and iope to present the matter to the "oman's Club here
today, and to the Springfield Improvesment Association tomorrow, and
see how many strips we can get tiem to take for the dimes. I will
get the letter out ri- t a:ray and send you for approval before sending
out with your name to it. I renmebered Mrs. Good after 1 came home,
and I think probably it will be a good idea to start fro Ft*. Lauderdale
and get all the clubs down to have an advisory comrlttee, and that will
give Ft. Lauderdale a chance to be on the advisory committee. This is
a large club, and will be of assistance to you in raising money, espec-
ially, and every time y3o call a meeting of yotr committee, you can
have rs. T. V. Moore and presidents of clubs iIeo are not represented on
this coaI::ittee, as t'ey are beard members you know. This will shate the
responsibility, and not make it so heavy on you.
I would put Mrs. J. W. Ives on, who was at the
meeting from Ojus, and Mrs. Minnie E. McDonald, president of the Ful-
fard club would also be a proper person to ask. Her husband was very
energetic in helping us get the bill through to get the park, and he
has promised to help us get an appropriation th-rugh for park maintenance
the next time the legislature meets, a'd it would be policy to have her
on. Then I would sugfest that you ask Mrs. F. :1.. Guenther, president
ef the Saraseta club, She might serve in case Dr. Jewett will not.
Dr. Jewett has already been appointed on the civic committee, and I
think probably it will be better net to ask her if you have not already
written her, as we do not want the same names on different committees.
In a few days, I hope to be able to send you a nanm from Section 4.
I have an engagement to talk the natter over with rs.1 W.Cumere necan
Wethesday, and will let you knew her decision. iul also see w can
get from Section 3. e s u l el
---I f- eel sure that- Mrs. Kirk Munree will feel very

much slighted if her Folio Club is not included in air advisory com-
mittee, so if I were you, I would try to find some one who is energet-
ic anr who belongs to her club, and put them on your advisory committee,
and maybe it will be best to advise with her about same. This will give
a representative from every club south ef Ft. Lauderdale, and clear up
all our troubles. Mrs. Vunro cannot serve because she is a state chair-
man, and r -rs Fredericks could not ser because tae is already en Mrs.
Munroe's committee. Is it Mrs. r e gave $10.00 from the Folil
Club? If so, it might be that she would like to serve from the Folio
Club.
With best wishes,
Sincerely,



President.

"y dear slr:-

I 'ave just ret.lurd from Wie royal 'alrm State Park, and
on rfcce.jber -2d w2 held a very enthusiastic meeting of sixteen present,
repricenting t'.o clubs from .ade county and Pt. Lauderdale.
e? e ladies were very much pleased wit' your offer to pro-
tect t e Iarge oak trees whlio stand in t'.e alid e of t.o road, and I
am coing to ask yvu to instruct your foreman or the superintendent of
your road building, a little furt'er as to the roa4 hand w Jule in and
around the park, ard wille going to and fro will building the road,
Just at present, we haven't t t-:e money to place a care taker on Uie .
around to look after our interests, alt.:ougi we are inaupurating a fund,
and '.orp to soon :ave t s necessary amount on a.,nd.
Sile down at tLe park a few days ago wit i 'r. Jennings,
I put up saoe trespass notices, and wrote on one and tacked on the large
oak tree wioh stands in t:.e middle of the road, .. ich I believe you and
Mr. Jennlngs agreed upon that tie road s!ould(-b*itt on bot:L sides of
t:is tree for us. The large tree t. at stands to the r'1it of t:e road
as yu go in near the *t:Vr one, I also marked. This of coLurse we want
saved also. "e would not mind if t- road bends in places to save the
growth, and of course, It will muae It more attractive to save the growth.
As you go into tie park on t:e ric.:t side, there is a very
beautiful royal palm you a would see about, and It is co near the road,
and where the ditch will go, that 1 as especially anxious tiat you worn
Ut2e men not to destroy it, but to turn t:4e road a little t..e other way.
"o would rather not ave many ditches in our park, but awe t.e edges
of the road slope down, and it may be possible for you to follow t dc
modt of construction. re would also like for you to get the rook in
the same pits that have already been dug, or from thie water's edge,
just approaching t'e park from one side or the ot.er.
"e would like the men wile camping in tLe park to use the
timber t at is already on U'Ve gerandt and not out new trees, .a I notic-
ed a considerable number of logs at tPe edge of the road t'nt had been

Jacksonville, Florida,
December 27th, 1915.


'iss Kate V. Jackson,
Treasurer, F. F. T. C.
821 South Rome Ave.,
Tampa, Fla.

My dear Miss Kate:-

I am enclosing the rest of t'-se bills which you
and I have >'ad so much trouble in getting g, and I rather t'iink t at this
closes up our expense account of the Federation meeting.
Thank you so much for the list of donations for the
park and endowment fund. I think now from the looks of things, that the
officers will have to be the endowment fund committee for this year. I
will keep a complete list of the clubs, and try to collect some money
from time to time, ard turn same in to you, and if you receive any funds-
direct, you can report same to ne, and in this way, we can probably keep
matters straight. .
I will probably send out a letter the first of Feb-
ruary setting aside a certain time fcr endowment pledges. Will you please
send me a .list of those clubs who 'ave donated to the scholarship fund,
the boy's c&rn club, and the girl's tomato club fund. You know we must
have this for the year book, and I would like to have same as soon as
possible.
The $1.50 for stationery go4ten in DeLand, should be
charged to the stationery account. It was used by "rrs. Dickins and the
press chairman, a Id a check should be made to reimburse me.
You will find Dr. Cox's bill, also Mr. Hume's bill
enclosed, wl:ich kindly charge to Federation accounts, and send them to
be receipted. The $12.00 for dime strips will be charged to the park
fund. At 'the meeting w; ich we held in Miami on the 23d, with Mrs. Gifford,
chairman, 680 of these strips were taken by the Dade county and Ft. Lauder-
dale clubs, se I suppose I wdll have to order some more. A resolution as
passed to start a campaign.to raise a mile of dimes. Each strip has places
for twelve dimes, and I -ope your clubs there will be interested in help-

each month thereafter. The money will be sent to Mrs. Gifford, and she
will book same and send to you. I would always keep as much in savings
account as possible.
Please send check as soon as possible fgr the 1hn dime
strips, so he will forward same, and I can get them out.
Thank you for the name of the woman who would probably
serve.
I regret very much tat you have been ill, and hope that
you have entirely recovered. Am sorry tlat Yrs. Wright and .'rs. Holt
could not get you these bills sooner, and I had to finally write for
them myself.
In a few days, "rs George M. :right of Lakeland, C:'airman
of Education, will write you about the boy winner of the corn club prize,
and you can send her check for "50.00 for him to be transmitted by her
by letter. Guess ypu noticed the accounts of the awarding of the ,50.00
to the girl winner, by "rs. Trammell. Our little Jacksonville girl won
same. We are very proud of her.
I am informed by Mr. G. L. Herrington, Assistant State Agent
in charge of the Boy's Agricultural Clubs, Gainesville, t'at Ir. Fred Evers,
of Alafia, THillsborough county, your county you see, is 'the prize winner
of the conm clubs, as he made the highest per cent of any boy in the state,
a total of 92.64 per cent. Iwill give Mr. Herrington's letter, together
with 1Trs. Tri-!t's transmittal, to your pages a little later, so you need
not make it public there.
I would suggest that you forward Mrs. Wright the check for
$50.00 and not wait f.r h-r to write you. Uake check payable to Mrs.
George M. "'ric't, and she will endorse it ever to the young man. If you
will send check at once, she will get my letter about the same time, and
it will facilitate matters. I congratulate your county on your boy win-
ner.
Lots of love and best wishes,
Sincere ly,


Enclosure .
