For nothing that is ,.ron

Nothing's ir.. -rtal but RiLht.

My dear Mrs. Jennings:

This Office has been constructing a map vhich will show

the location of all clubs belonging to the State Federation,

which are located in towns having less than 2500 inhabitants. We

find that we have not the state report for Florida,. We are

anxious to include the figures for this State and so we are writing

you again, asking for your most recent report, giving the lists

of organizations belonging to the State Federation,

Enclosed is an addressed frank which may be used for send-

ing the report free of charge. It is pasted on the outside of

the envelope instead of stamps.

Thanking you in advance, I remain

Very truly yours,

Mrs. W. S. Jennings,
President, Florida Federation of Women's Clubs,
Jacksonville, Fla.

Dear Mrs. Jennings;-

I have your very interesting letter of March
28. I suspect the rookery in Lake Cuthbert is the one
which we attempted to guard for some years, and in the pro-
tecting of which one of our wardens, Guy Bradley, was killed
by plume-hunters. I have frequently received reports from
ornithologists who visited the rookery since that time, and
they tell me Egrets no longer inhabit it, except occasionally
in small numbers.


pleasant
the East
see it.


It is very nice to learn that you are making
progress with your park. The next time I am down
coast I want to get you to tell me how I may go to


I am taking the liberty of sending you under
separate cover, some of our publications, which I trust you
may be interested in looking over.

With sincere regards I am,

Most codially yours,

will add a few points to your good roads informa-
tion.

It is mighty encouraging that
women generally are taking such a great interest
in roads betterment, for it means an added and
.very iWfluential strength behind the movement.

If at any time we can be help-
ful in the way of information or otherwise, please
do not hesitate to call upon us.

Very truly yours,

the banks of this ca.iql if we should desire to do so. I hav- no idea thJat
it will e c.ny.!re: wit'-iin our reach, but we can find out an:.'way. Of
course, tie -canal arDund the park would be a r.': -at protection also, It
would have to be six fr;et deep to permit of water standing two and one
half feet in same after the drain.ne work is completed in that district,
and the canal ought to be not less than 20 feet wide if it is oiinr to
be used for boats. I do not believe re will get it for less than 30003
per mile, and there will be about four miles I figure, as the park is
ab',ut a mile --aid a half long, and about a mile and a half t' rough at each
end. To.u and I certainly have expensive dreams to say the least of it.
Te really should have been mril&onaires and partners in tropical devel'-p-
ment.
I'T0w about road building. Mr. Jennings spoke to MIr. Pierce
and told him of the reports t.-at he had received, and also those I had
received about the poor building of t!:u road, ar that there were tilreat-
ened injtunctons. .r. Pierce has promised both of t!-at he will go im-
medi.et!ly this weeh to aiami, and stt g ,4.ten matters out. He says that
he has been so busy t'at he has not '.ac time to look after same, and I
re _lly think he is waiting the completion, of a contract elsewhere so t:'-ey
can rov Ute r:c'.inery down. Thq7 are doing splendid work on t- te rwoad
they are building near Jacksonvill2, ad I .t iriJ hr _ill be a.le to lt.rght-
en rmrtters out. 7Mr. TnarninEr told 1ih: of tie sentnimnt of the pu-:bli, and
that the pcc.yle ECid not think his company was 2oing good wor:.. I t~-ink
thler- wi 11 be no r.-: trouble. Of course, the trees li,'ng on the side
are vr:.,- unsighItly, but the County Conmissioners can tae~ a gang of con-
victs and have thias all burned later. Th: main thing we want is the road,

My dear Ars.Jennings:-

Well! after all my anticipations and lovely
plans to go to the Biennial as a Delegate from our State,it is

becoming evident to my mind that that pleasure is not for me tht

year. ',,hen I accepted election a a delegate I did not know

how much would be expected of me as a hostess during the meeting

of the Presbyterian Assembly in Orlando which meets at the same

time as the Biennial- My husband wishes to go to Chicago to the

Republican convention and from there to California,so that if I

go to N.Y. it leaves the brunt of closing our home for the summer

on my Mother and she is not able to do it.

Here I am ,delegate to the Biennial and crazy to go- have

already accepted a lot of invitations and things to be done by the

Pioneer workers of which I am a member- confronted by the fact

that my house must be full of strangers whom my husband's position

in the church here makes it incumbent on him to entertain- and my

home to be closed up for the summer the instant the guests are gorn

and the whole blooming lot comes at the same tLme......Now I know

I ought to have realized this sooner but I am obliged to confess I

wanted to go to N.Y. so much I would not look the situation in the

face- I have been hoping something would turn up that would open

the way for me to go without being too selfish- but it is no use-

I must stay at home and attend to my duties so please notify the

delegate that wants my job that it is hers-

Your letter about the room came this morning- hence these

tears,.. I hope you will all have as good a time as I had expected


I I I I I I .. -








to have- that is the very most I could wish for you.
With sincere regrets-

Mr deai l' as. Lunros:-

Thank you very much for yo"r lct.stir and data. I
would have 'leen very much obliged also for the myths, as it would
make a very attractive article.
I did not know th-?.t y:r hAdi dune uco wi.ugh toward. s

and I ._m only to,.' glad toe h able to t'iv the. history of the start of
thIs work to the public. I have tak-n good care of everytl-ing and amn
returning to you in good shape.
I thin] that !ras. T. S Coogler, Jr., of Brookeville,
Fla., wculd make you a fine member for Hernando County for your history
work. She loves suoh things, and I told her I would suggest her name to
you. aira. Christopher Locke of Dade City would d be a good member for
Pssco County for you. Tell them I suggested their names. While Mrs.
R. A. Ellis of Tampa is a s)&endid writer, she does so much for herself
in the literary line for money, that I doubt if you aould get anything
from her of service on account of the fact that she is so busy, but I
think Miss Kate V. Jackson, whose father really laid out Tampa, could
probably be of n.orc service to you than anyone else, and if I were you,
I should ask her. She showed me a tree in the Tanpa Bay Grounds under
which she said some treaty was signed by the Indians, and I think she will
be fine. Mrs. F, C. Whitaker of 3radentown would be splendid for Manatee
County for you, if you have not already one from there. Her husband
knows the county from beginning to end, and at one time resided at Sara-
sota. She has been treasurer of the club there for some time, and is
now corresponding secretary. You will see by this that I have been keep-
ing in mind you and your great undertaking to write a history for the
Federation f
Federation of Florida through your Folio Club, and fome time to time when
X find people that I think will be of service to you, I will let you knog

Thank you very much for your su--eestion and your help in
getting some donations towards our care takesrs salary from your State
Audobon Society. I hope you may succeed. My last information from the
National Audobon Society is that the birds have been exterminated from
Lake Cuthbert, and as there are no heron there, they do not oare to
bother with the rookery. They olaim that the birds have about all been
exterminated or chased off by hunters.

:Mrs, ,. S. Jennings, Pres.,
State Federation of "omen.' Clubs,
.Min Street, C i t y.

: dear ..r. Jennings:

I dropped into the office of the Letter Shop this
noon, and Mrs. Thompson spoke to me about the little talk she h-:1.
vith you last week in cc;rn-j-tion with the .;:nlin out of our annual
re-ort, and stated you e-r7.ected to come in to see me in regard to
it. For fear the matter may slip your Aind in the many d:..n .
upon your time, I am going to take the liberty of ,:-riting you this
letter so you may have correct information in r,-.-rd to our qsend-
ing out this -e"r.ort and other printed matter and in connection with
our method of raisin- funds, for I feel it is of the utmost impor-
tance to our Society that in your position with the -'ci-~en's Clubs
of the state you should know just 'vhat the real facts are.

Practically ever:.- charitable institution and agency
in the United States for ye.--s has used the pera al method of soliG
iting funds. I find in s-kin info-.,i:.tion from other Children's
Agencies in the Uniti- States that Mnost of them are still using a-
3nts for the solicitation of funds. I find that the lo .est cost of
securing funds through .rerIonal solicitation is tweunty-five per cent,
and one Of the Children's ,Agencic: a-.1 i.; .cI-n throughout the country
last year publicly ..iiitted in their report that they paid sixty per
cent to secure their funds. Then I c-.e to Florida about six years
ago, the Children's 7citrue ,Pociety of Florida had a solicitor whose
coin:ission and e:-? ensure mounted to more than forty per cent of her
collections, I felt it was absolutely unfair to ask the public to
contribute to any work where forty cents out of every dollar went
to pay the commission of a solicitor. I felt sure that :1 the people
of Florida would learn a great deal more about our work through liter-
ature andr attractive parphlets, and that we could reach a .,eat many
more people in the state and secure a great deal more money at very
much less cost. The first year I had charge of the work in Florida
after di( ,ensin2 vith the services of the solicitor and using print :.
matter and letters of appeal, the cost was reduced. from forty per cent
to seventeen per cent, Rince that time the cost of securing our funds
through our annual reports .-, ,- other print-d matter and letters of .-
-'-al has never exceeded twelve per cent, and ,e .h'v raised a great
deal of our money for as little as four. and five per cent. Even at





S. *


:rs. W. S. J. 32.




the highest average cost during the last five years Lich is
twelve perc.n', y :e know our cost of securing funds is less
than that of any other Children's .ncy in the United States.
In addition to this fact, this same twelve pere cent not only
covers the cost of securing all of cur fnrid (for we use no
other method of solicitation) but it bring- us all of our
f-aily homes for we receive practically all our_1 lications
for children as a result of our attractive literature, and
in addition to the money and the homes, it keeps our work
before the people of Florida constantly and keeps up the
interest of the public in our work.

Our Board of Directors is composed of as fine
a lot of business men as there are in Florida. This Board of
men would not permit the expenditure of money for printed mat-
ter if t:',-- did not feel that it ..-.3 the very best method -.n
the least e-. .nsive ,--thoa of raising our fund. These men
feel when it is possible for us to 'tke four or five hIu.dred
dollars of the Society's money and invest it in Irinted matter
and postage for 1:erhapj two weeks, and at the end of the two
weeks :ut the five huad.:ed dollars back into the Bank together
with perhaps two or three thousand dollars in additional fnida,
th-at this is not din-. money for print .:..i matter ;.rf'. post.-.
but is in~ ;tia- the money of the Society in the v:, beet possi-
ble way. if -t : people of Florida knew tha t cur Board of Di-
rectors could make such investments (and we are making them
every year right along), and knew that they did not do so, they
certainly would feel as if our Board were not fit for the di-
rection of this great work,

Our method of securing 2n.. s has attracted the

Our Society at the present time is ta.in: a
few hundred dollars th.t we h;.. in the bank, whichh if we had

due the fu'l:ic by every organization, ::' at the end of a
week or ten days, we will have replac:1. every dollar of the
money and as a result of the inveil:....nt in the annual r- .ort
we probably will not have less than from two to three thousand
dollars additional money for our work, n,. we will ':ill have
the money to pay our bills with that we had in the first place.
e are simply using some methods in cur work that any business
concern would use, only we are getting a very much larger return

I really iad come to tie conclusion t' t had
lost -ou, but I .eve been so busy myself that I knew 7ou Tere also,
or I s.'ull-rd have ':e-rd from you.
I would like vr -y rJuc'h for you to write ue: -C:^
w fok for March for the r-iags andCi. eId to me as .soon as possible. I
i'- y wO': o 'Td urc- y;r clubsus to ..c-ra in notices eack week, because'
we want to mnke a coiui of club notes cech week, ,rad only 'bli'1i, ,'iole
rep oratr ...en t ey are excee~rinrly fine and full. You certainly ave
been r:orking arn I cinEratulate. you on yoaur sucec ss.
I "s;i' 1- ~.ri'.t coL'e to yai, but i see :o ope until
after tte Biennial. I go to Orange sar-. touiorro, to PalatVh Io'ou ay
to:'told a mer-.ting with t'i:.c;. ThIorre,, -r to Crescent City Tuesday,, then
back 'ore. I Rwi 1 not fo anywL'-ere else until I atterid the 'co.rd meet-
ing ini "al-' las .e'? tV'. L -r.od 3rcd of "'e, unless it is to Yulce to
organize a club, and can run over t'-ere in tlie machine. "lich you
could g t some clubs in for t'- s T~'Tiy Board uieeting. I 'ope to give
you sometime in your section later, but I must do something tith Section
3. It cei Lainly is a h'ard problem.
I am so glad t'at you give an encouraging report
about the strips because we h-ave not had very good results from thIem
yet. Of -ourse, t'ey c.in be kept and re-filled.
There have been four orange groves destroyed by
fire between Miami and the park, and we are in dread all the time that
tL e fire %Aill get to our park. I t'-ink t'at we are very fornutate to
have a care taker. Oi-n arch 19th, he reported 9 automobiles in the
park, and 38 people registering. !Te is keeping a register and I think
is going to make a fine showing before the Federation meets. We are
going to build a temporary lodgp if we cannot get a permanent one soon,

as it wiill be impossible for he and his family to live in a tent during
the entire slumer and rainy season. We must, do all we can for the park
S before summer comes on account of the clubs adjourning, so that we will
have money to carry us over.
I tried my best to get Mrs. Tousseint to serve in the
state bvork, but sIhe felt she could not do so just now. I rish ,you would
find out from her how dhe tamed that crane so tJet we can get several far
ti-e park. 'r. T"osier is feedrng the bird-s vith great success, and reports
hoot owls and flying squirrels. He is cutting~ paths and opening up the
way around small Taii.s so light can get in, and I am much pleased with
the way he is going ahead with the *, or k.
I hope you can come to the Poard a:et ing.
I expect you and I ill tahll each ot'er to desaL at the
Biennial. I have lots to tell you also. -.snk you so much for your letter.
'ith love and best wis -es,
Sincerely,

Madam President and Club Members:-

The Florida Federation Board which met at Daytona Feb-
ruary 16th and 17th endorsed Hiss Charlotte Dye for the position
of superintendent of the Florida Industrial School for Girls,
which is to be built near Ooala. Miss Dye has the best of rec-
ommendations having done satisfactory Industrial School work in
Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri and Alabama. She is now in
Alabama, teaching in the State Training School for Girls under
Mrs, Ophelia L. Amigh. She is making a study of the problem of
delinquent girls in' the South. The Board was unanimous in endors-
ing Miss Dye. Having carefully studied her recommendations, and
written to addresses she furnished, Mrs. W. S. Jennings, as Pres-
ident P.BFW.C. has notified the Board of State Institutions, of
the Federation Board's endorsement, transmitting Miss Dye's reo-
ommendations to them, asking for the appointment.

Mrs. Jennings and the department of Industrial and So-
cial Conditions earnestly request you to write to Governor Park
Trammell, as chairman of the Board of State Institutions, request-
ing him to appoint Miss Charlotte Dye 'of Birmingham, whose appli-
cation is on file in his office, superintendent of the Industrial
School for Girls. Also urge the Beard to begin the erection of the
Girls' School at once, and secure Miss Dye's services in advance,
as she is thoroughly capable of directing the construction of the
-buildings, on the latest and most approved plans for such institu-
tions. In your letter, please stress the fact that there is dire
need throughout the state for such an institution immediately, and
send the letter to the Board without delay.

Manatee, Fla.

My dear Mrs. THubbell:-

I did not get home in time to send you the
literature you asked for, for your county meeting, but I had already
given you the constitution and by-laws, and I saw by the paper where
you held such a successful Federation meeting. Now the next step, my
dear, is to come into the State Federation. I have written Mrs. Bach-
man about it, and there is a special provision for Federations coming
in, and I hope you will press the rmttLr, as it will give you a larger
representation at the Federation meeting. It only costs "1.00 per club,
but you have to have five clubs in your Federation to come in. The
State Federation year book will give you a great many ideas about form-
ing your departments.
S'ith best of good wi dses, and congratulations
far tle success of your organization,
Sincerely,


President.

Jacksonville, Fla., April 7ti-, 1916,


Yrs. John Gif ford,
Cl-airman Park c:Lz.:.ittee, TFFC,
Coconut Crove, Fla.

TMy dear "rs. Gif ford:-

Did you intend for me to send Dr. Fairchild a copy
of tie data that I got up on the park? I sent Dr. Simpson's copy yester-
day by special delivery, and hope the delay has not occasioned him any
inconvenience, and will be in time to be of service. It was quite a Job
to go back over all the correspondence, and gt the data arranged in
proper shape for such an article, but I feel that I have covered the
ground v.ry thoroughly, because I gave two or three days to it, and far
into the idrdnig.-. t hours, and I hope that he can use same I am sending
you a copy for yctu own use and file,
I am also sending Dr. Fairchild a copy by this
mail, ard saying it is at your request. I :-ope I have done as you de-
sired. Y'rs. T:. A. Ellis is to write an article also. Tris will be
for magazines, I fancy, or newspaper work
'inank you for putting us strai:-t on tie 503,.0
for endowment fund.
The Tropic Magazine should be sent to all the
chairmenp of all committees and vice chairmen. It should be sent to every
member of the Conservation department, which includes every member of
your comn;.-ttee also. It should also be sent to all the officers of the
Federation, and the past presidents, including Mrs. 'W. B. Young, as
Director of the General Federation, and Mrs. lennybacker; Mrs. John D.
Sherman, and I really think every member of her committee also. This
last I can furnish you if you think best, but of course, she is the
principle one, and Ehe might be furnished at least four cr five cones.
Then, they should be sent to the president of each club in the State
and to all the past presidents of the Federation. You will.find all
these addresses in the yer.r book, and I should have them marked when
they are sent to the club preside .nts, addressing in the name of the club
members, oth-er.;ise the presidents keep such things, and t.e members never
see same. I would also send to Trs. Mary I. 'Tood, Bureau of Information







2 -- TIrs. J. G.

of the General Federation, and our own Bureau of Information should be
each furnished a half dozen copies. You can count these names and see
just hew many will be necessary, but if you are not very careful, the
Tropic magazinee office will overlook some of these names, and the effect
will be lest unless these magazines are carefully and thoroughly sent
out. I really think for publicity work, t. at each paper in the State
probably should be sent one. The Press C' airmnan should be seat at
least one half dozen, because it will take two for each paper, as they
will not print stuff that is on more than one side of the sheet, and we
want it re-produced in our pages. This of course should be sent to me,
and I will be glad to look after it.
I think you should have these sent out as I have suggested, and
really, some official in each county should be furnished a copy, and prob-
ably we could reach more people t;rough- the county judge's office by
sending each county judge one. '.e could get this list from the Secretary
of State, rion. H. Clay -rawford, Tallahassee, then I think the State
Officials, and Supreme Court Judges should have copies. This I figure,
will take about 500 copies.
I think if you could have these addressed all under your own
direction and supervision, it would be safer. I really think 500 copies
would be necessar-y so we could have some left, because you know we must
have some in our letter writing. This would cost us '!25.00, but I do
not think t'at "25.00 could be better spent than in the expenditure for
llteratire on the park just now, and I hope Dr. Simpson's article will
cover our net'es. I am going to tackle some of our news papers and get
them to write editorials on same right away, because we must get our
work done before the summer canes on.
The picture you sent me is the one I want a half dozen of, but
I want a full set of these Popenoe pictures for my own use too, and I
want to use the half dozen like the one you sent me, in out press work.
I would greatly appreciate pictures of these Cuban scenes also if you
can possibly get them for me. "lease let me kncw how mudh they afe
when you send them, and I will remit for sane. The club women go into
ecstacies o-tr your Cuban pictures and our prospective palm drive.
I will qS-nd t'em back Po you after my meeting in Palatka, and Crescent
City meeting Tuesday. They are a great help to me in my work.
Lots of love, and best wishes,
Sincerely,


President.

of course, if you care for it, I will be glad to have you keep it.
We will ctl'tainly appreciate anything you can do to
help us get the "oyal Palm State Park properly before the public.
Your opinion will go a long way towards helping us develop it, and we
appreciate vwry much the interest you have so far taken in our work,
and will be grateful for any future efforts you may put forth to help
us.. "e really feel tU-at this conservation work of the Federation
is a ci/ild of your department in a way, and we will probably bother
you from time to tii-ie for advice and assistance, and if we do succeed
in financing the park without having to sell our endowment land, and
are able to develop on this land a botanical garden in the future, we
will still hope for your assistance.
ith best of rood wishes and assurances of appreciation,
Very truly,


Enclosuire .

My dear sir:-

I sent you yesterday by special delivery, all the data
concerning Royal Palm Hammock or Paradise Key, now known as Royal Palm
State Park, but wish to make the following correction on page 5, Act
of the Legislature:

ACT OF THE LEGISLATURE:
"U'rs. Jennings sought further council, and after conference with
the officers of the Federation and Mr. Ingraham, decided that a Legis-
lative grant was necessary; the title to the lands being primarily
vested in the State, and that tie Legislature should be asked to cede th
the lands to the Federation for Park purposes, and to designate the Hanmock
as "Royal Palm State Park," conditioned upon the Federation procuring
a like acreage of lard as an endowment."

I trust this data will be of some service to you in your
article.
Very truly,


Pre s id ent.

!y dear -rs. Ellis:-

I am enclosing th:e Par'l data twich I have promised
you for suo'l a 1-ng time, and a full set of the pictures. These pictures
are ei,' t cents each, and if you choose to keep the whole set, you may
remit to me for stae, otherwise you can just select "*vhat you think would
be most necessary for y)ur article cut of this. I have given just the
bare facts, and you can enlr--e on t'em as you see fit. You can go out
in the Tanpa Bay gca-iands, and let the 'lure of palms and tropical gryowAth
sink in, end then write an article on what ,ou imagine t-tis tropical
jungle to be.
I most oertinly db want copies of this when you
succeed in getting a magazine to publish same, and we will reproduce it
in our pages.
7ill you kindly return the data when you h-ave
finished wit'h it, as I will constantly have calls far same? It seems
impossible to keep sufficient copies on hand of anyt: ing to comply
,wi th ial requests.
Tit'. love and best wishes,
SSincerely,


Enclo sure,


JaclEonville, Fla., A!si' 7th, 1916.

:Mrs. i'ilier wrote me, and I congratulate you on your
work. I sutzose ';tat other :-mounts will be coming in from the clubs
for dues, so we will not worry &oout our funds. Mrs. Giffo'rd writes
me that she ha3 about 550.00 on hba,.d, gotten since she aent you the
$78.00. I am going to let you and she keep track of the amounts, because
it is some job for me to try to keep up with you both.
Mrs. Lewis writes that she has been talking to her olubs
in Section 5, and she believes they will take the strips. We really
need this mo'aey, beoauae sumr'er is oomin& on, and I do not know what we
are goinr to do without a ltdgo, They have had four big fires near Miami
recently, and four orange groves destroyed. I am so afraid for our Park,,
