Jack.uonville, Fla., n.arch: 17th, 1916.

Mrs. :lizabet'i Skinner,
Dunedinr, 71- .

My dear -r:'. SkInner:-

I am glaU t.t you ,'ere &.t tre meeting .it Clearwator,
and rt-gre t very much t-a t I did not e t hoiLe in timna to answer- :;'icr- letter
for the Wednaesdny menetir. you spoLe o' Ve t.7r,' away ten days, and h1d
nine meetings in t.!ich forty olubs r-epcrtsd, z;nd I fe,-l mun gra vti'ied.
We have one club .tht ha;t lIlready 'rs.nt in c'ke-ck 1or dues, id we feel
results are jlreaLdy coming in from ti.i trip.
T ink U ,-.i '-e't you rcall.3 n.c.-d is C 'c:- : Clu
with all the dpsrtrgnts, E.nd wit.'i :l.l lthi ot-'r "clubs c-nsolidated, mnak-
ing one large organization, you ocu id be of so muct. miare force in your
organization. I am finding you undi ir sepair te cov-r -. year boo;. of the
SprinGfiteld Improvemvvnt Associa0lon, nd1:0 ,. lso a ;col; of tI110 7- oua:.1s Club
year book. I think these carry out t'-is indas of t,' dtpartints probably
better than anr I knn"- of. The constitut.irn ind by-l-u;ws of tie Spring-
field Tmprovement Association r.nj v-ery imrlE. T I .-:oir-: onirey
over myself, ard you coulf do thet suTrr- Irl: under thsra ths .i you could
in the "oman' s Club. io.:ever, the o'"cn -' Club w ill show you to wwhat er-
tent you can carry out the vnr k. I Tho'?lD, call- all th'. orianizatior s
together', as you 'avf probably already done, and' .'-c 1n priocc ed to aloot a
tenLpor-ary c:alrnran for t1e organization, with temporary socreta;'y, nnd
then proceed to discuss tre mtLe)- of oranl.zatiln. O"f "r-r.e if :ll
these organizations express a irillingness to come into one large orc nliza -
tion, t.niy would all have ts sa me chance to elect s portion of the offlc-
ers to ta.ku charge of 1%is large or-anizati.on. Nou will notice th-at the
vice presidents are chairman of renartments, and have defined duties under
this conaslitution and by-laws ,'i6r 1 am ser-ding you. All the -:ork- is
done und6r t.eae big departments in sub-'livi.sons, end it works s spltndidly.
Your Literary Deparment would d be under owur Literary Vice President, I-to
is the first vice president of ti-e club. These divisions tilen Awould all
have chairman ,,'it.. coittees. Thei Civic York v;ould be done uvder a com-
mittse, with a chairman, and tLis wit:. oUher committees, if you will notice








#2-- Mrs. E. S.


tlis divisions, work wit'- t'he philanthropic or third vice president.
You can use the same charter by changing the names, and I would ..uggest
that you get a charter, same as we did, and proceed to secure grounds,
and a club house sufficiently large to house your library work, and
everything else. I think tie multiplying of small ganizations weokens
the benefits to be derived from one large organization.
The trees would come under your forestry committee, or conser-
vation chairman. Sometimes conservation, as you will notice, is divided
into forestry, waterways, cgod roads, etc., as you will see by our letter
head, but it is not always necessary in small organizations. In Daytona,
Ormond, -inter Park and New Smyrna, t-.e streets and side walks are built
around the trees, and it is quite a charming effect I assure you, and
people coming to Florida are very much enthusiastic over tihe scenic
beauty ..icbi ai'sa been preter'ved in t tse towns. You ai-iuld ilav a
Legislative Gouiiittee of coui-se, to handle your legislative matters
before your council, but this committbn cooperates with otLner cor-nitteas
in your club. Of c ouise, .ten youa fbrim an arganizatlon, you lirst pro-
ceed to adopt a constitution and by- and y-a and en proceed to sl st your
officers. Several clubs have used these I am sending you, and it is
very simple and complete.
I pill be so glad if you can consolidatei all tiihee organiza-
tic.:3 arri corm into the Federation. We need you arid I daresay we can
be of scrvi2e to you in your ,work.
If this does not cover all you want to kno, please nriLe me
again, and I will be mare tran glad Lo ;ielp you in over way possible.
-it- best of good wishes,
Sincer ely,

Jacksonville, Fla.
My dear sir:-
I am writing to make for~iJ application on beh l of Mlis;
Margaret gt wght of Sanfod for a position as kIndeigarten tetaoer of pub-
lio aschols of Jackuonville.
MAse Wiht has had five years of traaiing in kindsrgaxten
sd. playgrou m work in Ohioa., %th praotiCoj. experience, =and rauates
in June, She is in line for direotress of Hull House, and could probably
teow e thin poNition, but her ho s in Sanford, and she feels that she
wants to oOB back to Florida to be near her family. Sb hasii becn iwll
trained ,ad is equipperd to do credit to the school in which she might be
given a position, and as I understand the new school buildings axe to be
equipped with kindergarten grades, it would give me a great dMal of pleaa-
ure to know that she was given a position in one of the school.
I wtderstwns tiat Mine Wight could not ocme for ,S50.00 or
less, but as I believe the foundation of a child's education i verTy in-
portant, I think we could not do better than secure her services. Her
address will be oare of Mro. Henry Wight, Sanford, Fla. I hope that her
application may receive favorable consideration.
With renewed assurance of cooperation,
Very truly,

way that the one fine royal p&lm on the edge of the hammock, at the
J I/of the road, be left where it is, and we cold plant on the other
aside of the avenue. I would dislike very much to hanv that moved,
beoauae it novld eqt it back so.
I ciu.h you wculd lake it plain to Mr, hIosler that rt expect to

is probably the best idea. Of course, t would ,ant to be sure about

Jacksonville, Fla,, March 18th, 1916.

Mrs. John Dickinson Sherman,
Chairman Conservation, G. F. W. C..
Chicago Woman's Club,
410 South Michigan Ave.,
Chioago, Ill.

My dear Mrs. Sherman:-
I have your letter sent from Dorffell Drive,
Seattle, Wehington, but I find that as you will only be there until the
30th of Maroh that my letter could not possibly reach you, so I
am writing you at the Women's Club, hoping that they will forward your
mail.
The article is splendid, and I am going to send
you under esparate cover in a day or two, some pictures of the park,
which you might send to tha Ladies' Home Journal to be used with your
article, if you choose to do so. We are receiving a great deal of com-
mendation from scientists, and I am very proud indeed of our work.
No matter what phase of the work you are in next
year In the General Federatio#, I would like very much for you to come
to Miami, if it is possible, and go with us to visit the park. The
Miami Woman's Club is to entertain the Federation, and we are to have
a rate of one fare, plus 35# on the East Coast Railway from Jacksonville
down. The club wcmena''OEtianmi are going to take the womein of the Feder-
eration by train to Homestead, where we will drive fifteen miles in
autos to our park. There has been a contract let from Horettead to Cape
Sable district, forty-three miles for $93,000.00. I think I wrete you
this before, The road is to be twenty-four feet road bed, and sixteen
feet hard surface, is to be completed by July, and probably the entire
road will be completed by the time our Federation meets. The building
o'f this road is provided for by special road bohd. Our Park and en-
dowment land, which equal 1930 acres, are all in one tract now, and we
will have nearly two and one hald miles of this road through'our property
which would cost us $10,000.00 to build. Our land is all in a special






#3- Mrs. J. r. S.

drainage district, but as the bill which Mr. Jennings drew for me,
exempts us from taxation, we get all of these benefits without it
costing us anything. March 1st, we employed a care taker, because we
were very much afraid the road gange would destroy our growth. He hat
alre. dy begun to feed the birds, and as the shooting of the birds is the
only depredation he has noticed, we are going to have him made a deputy
sheriff at once, so that he rwin be able to protect our property in more
ways thin one. At present he is living in a tent, but we hope soon to
be able to build a lodge.
Recently, Mr. J. Horace MoFarlane, editor of Country Life,
Sand advertising agent, visited our park, and is very enthusiastic. He
has promised to write an article for us. Mr. Popenoe and Mr. Harris,
of Carnegie Instttute avre been there taking many pictures, and they
are also very enthusiastio, and I hop@ for some help in this direction.
Dr. Fairohild, head of the Plant''r re'Ai fcr the Government, has promised
us an article kor Ae Geographio 'Magazine. on the 14th of February,
Dr. J. K. Small',bo the Bronx Botanical Gardens of Hew York, stopped over
here fo~.a conference with me at imy request, on his way some. He has
teen coming to Florida for fifteen years, ga.tberin plants against the
inroads of civilization, he says, bcth for himself and the Government.
He claims that this hammock, and other smaller ones in the Cape Sable
Sditriot; are different in species from a ny other growth in the United
States. Ve own the largest tract of land with Royal Palms on saae, and
it ia al. below the froat line. Dr. ~r.nall says tl at the Cape Sable dis-
triet, which includes our park, is unique, in -hat it is different from
anything else in the world, and that both he and Dr. Pairchild think
that the Government should have bought this whble section as a Gcvernment
reservation. Of course now it has fallen into the hands of private
owners, and it would be a very hard matter to buy it up for anything
like what the Government would be willing to pay for same, but I under-
stood from Dr. Small that Dr. Fairchild was returning to Washington to
recommend to the Government that they buy up certain oth..r Zctaooke in
that section as Government reservation. I gife you the testimony of
these people to show you that we are decidedly on the right t'ack in our
conservation work. Of course, I am so interested in plant li1e and growth,
that I might be over enthusiastic in my judgment, but with such men as
tbhse to back up my judgment, I feel safe in going ahead with same. Our
oare taker is a man of no mean botanical ability, and has assisted Dr.
Small and Dr. Fairchil3 a great deal, and comes to us very highly recom-
mended.
On the 23rd of this month, the Governor has set aside as
Good Rodds day, and the State is to have a good roads convention at St.
Auuustine, when I have been asked to speak on the "beautification" of
the highways. I will send you a clipping of the article and some of
the write-ups of the meetings if they are good and full.
I certainly do appreciate all your assistance, and I am so
anxious to meet and know you, as I have greatly enjoyed our correspond-
ence.
Thanking you for any assistance you may find you can render
us, and With best of good wishes, I am,
Very sincerely,

I am very glad indeed that Ccvernor Tra.ina.ll has is-
sued a oroclaination for bird day, ATril 4tLh. I wish you 1'ad succeeded
in sending Mrs. Jenison, Press Ch-ain-an, six copies of a message from
you on ti-e proclamation, asking the school children to celebrate, .rnd
clubs to see t.at it rwas done. Of course, it will be too late now to
get. it into cur Federation paee s, but I am calling the att rltion of
of t!he editor ier' to ..ar.'e. It took a great deal of patience for this,
and I am afraid no'A without proper notice to t.-e clubs, that it will
not have t effect t* at it. should .aw ad. I -have succeeded in Cet-
ting tl.e. -uperintenrdent of ti.i Ccinty to agree to h've bird houses
built in tie msaual training classes of the school, and we will start
a set of prizes next year for the sc-ool children, w' ich I hope will
encourage the work a great deal.
I will send your letter to Mrs. millerr and let her ka
know that you think it is best to postpone her visit kntil next yerr,
but we ame really very anxious to get these clubs, and 7'rs. Gynne asked
to entertain me, and it eightt be she would entertain t-em if you mention-
ed the subject to her.
I ai glad ycu made .01.00 on the Bryan lecture.
I have a very splendid letter from your son, ":r. 'Tanson

My Dear Mrs. Jennings:

Of course we are delighted to
have you and your Board with us. I have turned over
the pleasure of entertaining your board, to Miss Hen-
derson, but have misplaced your last letter stating
just what day you will be here. Will you please write
Miss nan Henderson, Domestic Science Instructor, and
tell her the number of members of your board we may
hope to have attend, and also just ;-hat days you will
be here. On account of the schedules, our girls can
take care of you better on Thursday, Friday and Satur-
day. I have forgotten whether the days you mentioned
came on these days or not.

Write directly to Miss Henderson, as I am
leaving on a ten days trip to West Florida. I am
holding up my itinerary for my next trip until I hear
from you, for I certainly am going to be here all of
the time you are here, and I assure you we are all
looking forward with much pleasure, to having you.

Yours most sincerely,

Dear Madam: I regiebted your inability tc be wi.th us at the first

meeting of the Com2isoion in Jacksonville.

.Jr.Brorciin came up and we did what we could in the way of ,n

orYania rion,etc.

The Appointments inplied that I was chairman and this --.

confirmed, with Dr.Randolph as Secretary.

'r.Fagg had offered the services of his stenographers and we

felt that the Secretary should be in Jacksonville.

Supt.Shoats offered to aid us in any r;y and we accepted his

offer and instructed the secretary to notify him to that effect and

to lay before him our desires,

r.SheatE said that he would take up the matter of census with

County Sc'o-ll Supts.,and through then with the teachers, .,' in this

way we should get a fair census of the abnormal children.

Dr.Randolph w'as also instructed to t,. up the matter of defect.

ives in custody with the State Prison physician,Dr.Blitch.

I suppose the next mncotin; will be called in your town,on the

report from the secretary that he has sufficient matter to make it

worth while.

The secretary "wra also ordered to get necess,-y boos, stationary,

etc*,and to su-i it the bill' therefore to the commission for appro-

val.

for dues, and this is expanded of course, for year books, and actual
expenses of that kind, the officers and chairmen bearing all their person-
al expenses and a great deal of the printing of literAture in carrying
on the Fedration work. The Federation work is actually a work of pub-
lio service, without any compensation except the joy one derives from
helping to better oondibicns in all respeaot.
On accoomt of the fact t1b.t +here have been some camps which
made the park exposed to the danger of fire, and the probable destruction
of what we are trying to conserve, we felt compelled to secure the ser-
vioes of a oare taker, who took charge Maroh let. His serviess will o0t
us l100.00 per month. We now hare on hand about S800.00 1- -int fund.
We are trying to have the club women be the media through which the peo-
ple of the State will be permitted to contribute to this wort, and if
everyone in the State would give us a dire, we would have t100,000, but
we are trying to raise a mile of dimes by sondin out foot strips which
hold 12 diaes, or $1.a0. I am enclosing you one of these strips to fse,
because I think it a very unique idea, and it bas aroused considerable
inte-est. The mile would give us $6336.00. There have been over 8000
of these distributed, but results hbav boon slow iaout oorain in yet, aad
the obeif course of r-svenu so far have been individual subscriptions.
The care taker is residing in a tent for the present until we oan find
some way to sjoure funded to build a lodge. I think we .mitht build same
for 3000 to $3800 oad equip a'se. There io of c:ur*s, a ryeslt dcia to
be done to the park, but in time to come it will be a greoa acurce of
pride to the State I think. Mr. Charles Mloaier is oare taker, and has
bejmu tu l -ed the birds, and finds that the only depredation so far is
tha killing of tho birds by hunters. We intend to make this a bird
sanoruay an &Bi a gam preserve. We have recently been notified, and our
caro t-kir took charge of 'the oarcasses of eight deer which had been tdde-

We :ra .Goir Lo have c:ur care tale- d -A drcL*uty saorilf iu.'eai .-t^Ay
for th ;i, t:eC'icn o the birds* and for .rny other rzatonfT.
During the Federation oonventicn which is to be .hli in tMiati
in Ncvz-ber, the roman' a Club of Miai, wh whwill be the hoIateas for tha
convention, are Loing to try to e.arrang to take all -the wio..rrY of ths

I sinoerely hope tl-at we can rent ourz land for Asote ears
for tci ato rowiting, a I am vary inuch opposed to sallins' saine, a-ltough
you gave it for endowment or whatever purpose rwe felt ;.z a']:;uld neod
it for park ai&ntenwnoe. My idea ia to ke,.p this l.nd, and gradually y
beautify Bsas, and develop thereon vwonderful botanionl eardeta, .vhich
wouli be quite possible, as tib property 1i all below the frost 2lne.
There ia no reason .why we should not have gardens in Flri3orl which woLld
oscrpar with tha IBitea org Gardene of Java. Of ooiurne, we ovuld not
have the soenie attraction of hille van water fails, but t;bn grtrwth oan
be brought fro eaver;y country of the world and put on thiS traot. This
is my dream, .a;d it will take money to carry it out, but I liv? in hope
that re rz.y hb.v.t o0 ne of the world famed garden spots. In time to come,
I hope that we may be able to make a sanal around the pazk, throusin up
a roadway of about 100 fesEt around it, and develop in this oaana boating,
fishing, and a beautiful dz we whinh wor.d attr t to'riate.
e. are anxious to have out lodge oontain severCa ixtra rooms

Jacksonville, Fla., March 30th) 1916.


Mr. St. Elmo W. Acosta,
310 Florida Fire & Casualty "l.linl,
City.

My dear air:-

I appreciate very much your letter of March 2nd, and have
been watching with a great deal of interest your activities along the
line of "Florida Beautiful," and beg to assure you that cur women's clubs
everywhere are cooperating along this line, and leading in many instances.
The Springfield Improvement Association and the Jacksonville
Woman's Club have already made application to the County Comrissioners
to set aside in their budgets for tree planting in highways. Our State
Chairman of Forestry, Mrs. Clonts, will make this appeal through a letter
to all the counties. Of course, we understand that the only way to arouse
public sentiment is to keep matters before the public on which we wish to
convince them.
I think your idea of having ten acres for raising trees and
palms at the prison farm is splendid, and I hope that we may make a suooess
of same. I will bring your letter to the heads of the departments in
the Springfield Improvement Association to whom your work would appeal,
and by combining efforts, I hope that we may be successful in results.
Certainly we should multiply our attractions everywhere in Florida, and
make Florida worthy the name of"Eand of Flowers."
If at any time the Springfield Improvement Association can
cooperate with you on any special work, or the Board of County Commission-
ers, we will be most happy to give your communications immediate atten-
tion. club
Absence from the city on a ten days trip on.work in south
Florida prevented an early reply.
With best of good wishes for your success in the splendid
work you are trying to accomplish,
Very truly,


President.

"ill ycu kindly reply to the enclo sed, ain do vhat-
ever you can to help with this convention. I think a paper from you
would be quite acceptable. Do not forget t-at the Fe3dration has made
a fTi -ht for public nurses, and has to far gotten 12 appointed. I think
if you old woi rite a paper for them, and gie me six copies for our
pages, it woil.O be a 2ood idea to have them publi!sc unless you think
it f'eill be too technical for the average intellect.

Jacksonville, Fla ., Varch 21st, 1916.
l-Lss Agnes 'lien 'arris,
Vpoman's Coll!eS ,
Tallahassee, I'a

My dear "iss arrlis:-

I have your letter enclosi--g a letter from rs.
Owen & ir -,ul&a, and this i.matter has been brcl gt to my attention bDwu
time ago. I do not see any lope now to interest lte : eclration in
this matter. W7e need so many more things in Florida thnr a chlahl of
rural nurses, and with our request to the F 'ederation for endowment,
pvr1- maintc:,ance acholjrships, and corn and caning club prizes, it
is just about as much as out clubs can do and I told your representa-
tive before that we did not feel able to take the matter up in Florida
Our Federation did not give but $500.'00 towards our General T'J._::ation
endowment fund, j, I for one would oppose asking the Federation for
anyt'iing else. I do not think our Federation should be used for
all serts of purposes, arn I do not feel that I can allow them to be
asked for anything on thi a score. It is a very beautiful tribute to
'"rs. Wilson, but as she was only the President's wife, and as faras
I know has never dono anything or ay great consequence for the United
States, I do not feel that m are indebted to her for ony zcpecial individ-
u--l service. I should love to cooperate with you in this matter, if I
felt that we really should call on the women for anything of this kind,
but I have discouraged this movement as far ad possible, as I have been
approached on the subject here by l7rs. Thomas P. Tenham, at the begin-
ning of this work. !e are away behind in the money for the prizes and
have sad to take it out of our general fund, so you see it is rather
risky to start anything else, as the women feel that tUhey are being
begged entirely too mudi.
I really think it will be better for you to write
t'rs, Oven and tell h'e exactly how I feel about the matter, and how
we stand in r-gard to our other work, and t at it will be impossible for
us to tale anything else on just now.
I acknowledged the resolution you sent me, I think,


Il Ilb _~ I I I I

on ComnTninty Life, passed by the Georgia Federation. I have not had
an oprcxtunity to take ti-s up with the Federation, as it came to me
after our Federation adjourned, but I will bring it to the attention
of ucr ?o~r-d in Tallahassee. This was sent meesome time a:o by you.
Tith warmest regards and best wishes,

.y dear "riss Dye:-

Your letter was received in my absence, hence delay
ir. reply.
The Industrial and Social Clnditionas hainnan I
t ink, will send out a letter in a few days setting forth the fact that
you :have been endorseol by the Federation Poard, asking them to send
special letters to Oovi'nepr 'Tra%..:ell, Chairman of the Bo0ad of State
Institutions, in your be:, alf, ad urging that the buildings for the
sc!:ool be co;imencEd at cnce as there is such a dire need for same.
I think that yotr application probably, unless you
know of some prominent man in Florida, whom you could reach, had better
be handled in this way. iaIss Clem Hampton is quite a power and a poli-
tician, but she and the State Superintendent d Public Tnstruction are
at cross purposes, and any action she mic"-t take, mni' t hurt your cause,
instead of benefitting same. This of course, it for your information.
She is a personal friend of mine and a splendid woman, but I think I
can handle t>is better Uirough different channels. The Stxite unrerin-
tendent you know is a c.mber of this Board, before whom your application
would go. I have sent to each of the members of the Board a complete
copy of your application and endarsements, ard while I have only non-
committal letters, they are very hopeful. I kInow them al1 pretty well,
and feel if the endorsement of the women in our state does not count,
there will be very little hope for us.
".ith best of good wishes,
Sincerely,

'y dear "rs. Stanley:-

I did notice that you had your naime printed on
the envelope. You are very smart.
I haye just seen "'r Wiht of !ani7ord, and am
so sorry ta t you did not get in touch with she Fnd 'rs. nickins in
Sanford, and stay for that drainage meeting; as I will have to furnish
the stationery here for ycar letter, I can just as well 'ave the Letter
s.op attend to same for you. T~e address is, "'rs. C. F. Tho;mpzr, Letter
Shop, U. S. Trust Buildling, Laura St., Jacksonville, They charge I think,
13.75 for 175 two page letters, which it will take to send one to each
club, the chairmen and officers of the Fecieration, and six for the pages.
By using single space, I think we can get your letter on two pa-es, at
least I hope so. I will 0. 7. your bill ond send to !iss Jackson, and she
will pay it out of the general fund, then you can :.end her r y.ur check
to cover thl amount, -.nd you will get credit for saae as work from your
depprtiment. I do this to show work accomplished, nrid klsoo to have the
chairmen get the credit in her official report. Do you w&nt me to send
ti; s letter Ec it is to the letter shop, or send it first to :ou. with any
sugf eL.stiorc I rlr : vc. T'r. Jermincs knows a coud deal about the appro-
prlatlons for watoerays, etc., and T will tall- the matter over with aim,
and then tell you what I think about it, I have not been able to rg.ve

bushel of mail on my return from section one,, -rnJ ,rs. Jackson an-d I
have been worhling very hard ani trying to if-ake an impression on -sun.e,
but I will enclose you ant coin ents on same if you wish, if not, will
