June 16, 1916.



Mrs. W. S. Jennings,
President of the Florida Federation of Woman's Clubs,
Jacksonville, Florida.
Dear Madam:

In compliance with my recent promise to you, I
have the .honor to hand you herewith a report from Col. C. H. Zoll,
Engineer at Miami.

He made a survey around Royal Palm Hammock for

us and he located tentatively a canal and roadway around same;
also, a map showing his survey and with the road location of a canal
and roadway.

In the lower left-hand corner of this map, you
will note a cross-section upon which he figured. The canal is to
be five feet deep, ten feet wide on the bottom with a five-foot
berm between the canal and the" toe of the roadway embankment. The
roadway is to be sixteen feet wide on top and surfaced with corra-
line or oolithic rock.

Trusting that the information herein contained,

map, survey and report from Col. Zoll and estimates of cost therein
contained will be of service to you, I remain
Very respectfully
THE J. B. COMPANY

Miami, Fla., June 9, 1916.



Mr. George C. Pierce,

Jacksonville, Fla.

Dear Sir: -

As per your :instructions, I have made survey

of Royal Palm hammock, and herewith hand you Plat of Survey and es-

timate of cost.

The total distance around hammock is 14,520 lin-

eal feet, or 2.75 miles. By digging canal 12' on top, 10' bottom,

5' deep, the yardage will be 29,578 cubic yards. The excavated

material will build an automobile road 16' wide and 3' high, allowing

for slopes. The cost of excavation (estimated conversatively) will

be 51 per cubic yard for excavation; at that figure would amount to

$15,084.78. And handling the excavated material to make a first class

drive 16 feet wide on top, including spreading, leveling with grader,

and rolling and all necessary work required to make a first class road,

will cost 14 cents per cubic yard, which would amount to $4,140.92,

making a total of $19,225.70 for the completed work,

I am basing this estimate on the supposition that

the work will be done while the heavy machinery which is now being

used on Cape Sable Road will be used on this job, as you realize the

cost of getting equipment to that point would amount to considerable.

I feel a great interest in this work, as it is

the largest and grandest proposition that the Womans' Clubs of America

have ever undertaken, and I certainly hope they make a brilliant


I II I I I I

success of the proposition. They certainly have as a start

everything that nature can.do for them, and with Mrs. Jennings

at their head, I feel that they can accomplish wonders.


Now, Pierce, you please tell Mrs. Jennings

that any favor in regard to this scheme she-may ask of me, will

be considered a compliment, and the granting of same will be unalloyed

'pleasure.


Now, Pierce, please don't show this letter as

it is private and confidential. On the 26th of May I mailed

you this letter and two blue prints, and as they have not been returned

to me, they must be in your office, as I had my return address on

both of them.





Truly yours,
S- L

Dear Friend of Florida:

The: Florida Federation of Women's Clubsa has under-
taken the greatest conservation work of any organization of woebnin the
United States. The last Legislature gave the Federation 960 acres of land
48 miles south of Miami, to be hereafter known as Royal Palm State Park.
This contains the largest growth of Royal Palms in the United States, many
estimated 100 feet in heigth, together with more than 60 varieties of trees,
rare otchids, ferns,vines and beautiful tree snails:. It is a wonderful
-tropical jrngle be*ew ~ne fo'et i e sad by scientists- to be unique
ta-' its kindVif United States,cr--~r n laae e
whees It is the only State Park owned by a Federation of Women, and will
be to Florida what the big trees are to California. It is: necessary that
you, as a citizen of Florida, realize what great assets the beauty spots
of the State would be, if proper y s!~WEfith the ersYlese
increasing flood of travel south P-S -it ha million tourists last year,
and more each succeeding season,'- we make the "Lure of the South'" i .
risistable, by "multiplying Florida's attractions.")XA Park endowment aiW
Mgi'. Aby Mrs. Henry M. Flagler, maki -6n.g-, making
tnta*l-l 1920 acres, including the Parkeowned- by ti*--Fgderati-on -4r-+-s be
plan to keep the endowment if possible for the develocpemient of botanical
gardens. Thirteen miles of Ingraham Highway will be completed from Home-
atead to the Park by August 1st. Four miles of paths? have been cut through
the Park. The Park is teame a game preserve and a bird sanctuary.
Quantities of birds -a being fed now by the warden,' s the warden is living
in a tent and we have no place to receive visitors, /o'u chief concern at
present is the erection of a lodge, which should be finished for the Federa-
tion meeting in Miami, November 21st to 24th,
The last Federation Board meeting in Tallahassee authorized the build-
ing of a lodge to be finsihed for the inspection of the Federation, at which
time the formal and official opening of the Par will take place. Plans are
being made by the local committee to take the Q convention to the Park
for this occasion. By winter we intend to be prepared to serve refreshments
to auto parties and have a few rooms to rent to scientists; conducting re-
search work.

The Dade County Commissioners appropriated $1000.00 for Park purposes.
A short time ago a campaign was inaugurated to raise a "Mile of Dimes" or
$6336.00 and more than $1000.00 has be n realized for the Park fund. If
the million residents of Florida wouldg'&&'ribute a dime, $100,000.00 could
easily be raised for the work and that wouldd solve the problem of mainten-
ance and development for some years. We should have for irxiediate use,
for building purposes, by the most conservative estimate, not less than
$5000.C00 ^ 1'lO,000.00 would permit more substantial and permanent im-
prove e nt.
We are taking this means of presenting the Park for your consideration
and are making a direct personal appeal to each friend of Florida. Those
donating more than a dime will be helping to make up in part for those it
will be impossible to reach. Please send your donation to Mrs. John
Gifford, Park Chairman F. F. W. C., Coconut Grove, Florida, and retail this
"Chain Letter" to a friend and they are to do the same. If you have re--
ceived a letter before, or do not care to make donaion, for any reason,
kindly re-mail to a friend, so that the chain will e broken. We are ask-
ing those who rehiah&~"published letter to respond without waiting to re-
ceive one.
All questions will be answered promptly. Remember, if those who live
in Florida put forth one tenth the effort to enhance Florida's attractions,
as do the Californians for their State, Florida with her wonderful climate:
conditions, resources and beautiful natural growth would soon become a
veritable garden of Eden.
"Florida Beautiful", should be the slogan. A strong pull a long
pull a pull all together success.

Yours for Florida FIRST,

Mrsa John Gifford,
Chairman Royal Palm State Park F.F.W.C.,
Coconut Grove, Florida.

Mrs. Gaston H. Edwards,
Chairman Conservation Department F.F.W.C.,
Orlando, Florida.

Honorable

Dear Sirt


Hobart Crabtree, County Engineer,
Miami* Florida.


The Florida Federation of Women's Clubs has
requested that.we build a short portion of the Royal
Palm Hanmock road around certain trees located on the
right of way, This matter has been taken up with tih
Board in an informal way, and I believe they have
acquiesced to the wishes of the Federation and that
it will be satisfactory for us to pass on either side
of these trees with an eight (8) foot road instead
of a sixteen (16) foot road straight along the right
of way.

I have written a letter to Mr. Bradshaw
along these lines and will state that we are willing
to build the road as desired by the Federation, I
S trust this will meet with your approval.

With kind regards, and hoping to see you at
an early date, I am

Very truly yours,

' Rottel Go.,
#33 E. State St.,
Trenton, N. J.

My dear Mrs. Gifford:

I an enclosing you your minutes which Iiss Rich bor-
rowed. She has written a rather nice article for the paper about
the meeting, and I am going to enclose you a copy, as Tell as
your own minutes.

I am also sending you a copy of the telegram you asked
me to send to Mr. IFosier, and I also am sending a copy 6$ Mlr.
Pierce's letter to Pr. Bradshaw and YLr. Pierce's letter to Fr.
Orabtree. I am enolosing copies of all these 3 above mentioned
in a letter to Mr. Mosier, so he may be informed.

I am also writing g to Fr. S. A. Belcher and Mr. Crabtree
to see if I cannot get things straightened out.

My stenographers have both been ill, awnd today is the
first time I have been able to work since you left-except to get
my stuff ready for the Federation pages. No help, and iZefficient .
help, are both.very hard to work with.

Er. Jennings will be gone all this week aid while I will
go over the plans very carefully, I would like to still confer
;iith him before making a final decision and r-turning -them to you
to be drafted. Misa Rich is to come. ut ind go over them witmhaoe tc
A .** .

morrbw afternoon. Nowever, on a whole, they look pretty hood
to me, and I think there will only be a fevr changes. The
other names hbich you tried to think of to ask Dr. Gifford was,
the initials of Mr. Dorn who loans money*

I would also like to know the initials of Mr. Peters,
who made so much money on tomatoes. He is just in sight of the
Park, and. probably knows the property quite well, and it may
be possible to get him to loan us coml'e money on long time. I am
;oin:. to ask the Board at our next meeting, ho.rever, if they
will consent to loan the Park Cormittee for building purposes,
the endowment coney ihich will pro~ibly amount to '1,000. or more.
We could pay the endowment fund interest and cou2d control the
collecting of our loan better than if outsiders held sarie. Could
leave that to be paid back last, because e we would .-ant to get rid
of our hi-:h interest paper first and be sure of saving our mortgaged
property, which we wouldn't feel safe about as l.on, as others
held the mortgage,

I will rget out the chain letter soon and send you copy
for your approval and sur'.estions.
T7ith love and best wishes,

Sincerely yours,

Ir. Chas. AI easier,
acL.cna Royal PalLiu adt Prk,
"omeatead, Fl2.

:'y dcar Sir*-*

"o' hai a very thL.,rough confeernce here on monday
afternoon with ;Irs. Giffcr-d, and :r. Pie".ce kindly acaire to
talk over the natter of road "'ith us, uind has irii'en the
enclc.aed letters to M:r. radaha. aid 'r. Tabee after Z
thorough agzreenontt with Mrs. Giford and I.

.,o -,ould be prfa!ctly willing, aind it vya, my su:u;'.eaas-
ion that, th e road be oplit a;.LJ only bie eal,-';ht feet wide, with
12 ft. ro.ad bed on each side of the trees. This v'oul. an:Swar
ov3ery purpose d. bel aell t.;haf ia nuoeriaary, rand -b quite satis-
factory, I think.

:-e also rarsed to have the roa A built around the two
trees fartherast Test. The Oak t'at stands on the side of t'he
road between the two end trees and back trees, we would advice
to let go and if lhey find it nacesuary to cut it down, they
ni ht do so. Of course it would not hurt the- e- to out ,-_/
the road a little tho'u-A4t Lut they ray not like it -nd if
no ;.et the other turn outs, we ociild afford to let this one pass,
so I should not r:.anicn it.

I anm ritin; L'r. Belcher and rr. Crabtree today and hope
v7c rill not have any further trouble orith the road. te also men-
tioned to .r. Pierce that the road bed was not being properly








t-A-' 2 7/5/16


prepared, but I ima-ine lao we will have' to say but little
aQout thi,. Mr. Pierce assure me that the road will be
finished, *rou.h th:, Park, by Au;us3t lt. You :ill notice
frz the lit.lo Pl.-tt enclosed, which r:t~a ivean me by 2rs.
GifLorl, j'.3 probably drawn by you--T do not know. For the
loc.ticn dcicic1ded on for the Lodge and the Pavillion, absh tiltlurlte
you rorev fully i soon au c is Xhla.
I shouldd sa.y thab', th Lodg,- proa r should s ot.
cle-red %e the reSd more than 23 fti,--autti Pb' back fropn the
road iLl.l give tbose who .renida in th1 Lodge nore comfort., as
tho passin. automobiles are going to be quite a nuisance in
time tc cores, I fear--ao I A.hould ;ay i;.. place the Lodige back
Sfr as a practical :-ithout di.iturhing too much of the choice
-rov-th. Then, it should 't at least ;85 ft. from the last tree
of ,;he l:.,ri oluater. It wouil. ''..: batter really to have this
located 30 to 100 ft. from This treu 'ea; I think it l..st to out out
all the. under&ro:.th and undesirable growth, benefiti;;iA the large
cluster of tree aend t'Lo Lod.a -n hich irouldl ot only 1i7 yo0t air-
space, but a full view of those entorini and leaving the paths.
Th.3 Pavillion i a..^t oaprosite-- should like it anyway on the
othsr side of the road, and my idea iould be to put it farther
.'s:->A if you oan finld ht.ch enough &iound, because peo-.lo --ho cove
on pionics :-tcL'd bSnToqn&tquite a nuisance to yeu who have "ories
if too nosz, and th,1' iLoea vol d.b to bave thom in sitht tut not
near enough to be troublesome.

Then i should like the Pl:aint house sonex-here back of the
Lod'e in th -. rove1 -'r:hero it .oulcd not .be t. oo prL 'omDiiUiin imr I
think: ie OshouJld put thu Garage entirely out of view in the ;rove
1j.J. have it built to acc-or ,unaata not leis th.-Jr. oix autcnobilee
for storar.e, of .Thich we could ol'axge a fee. Of course thase
i..^:... buildings are in the futuIo "a"il a.., nd we- ban only Wdooids
on them after we have dooiiced on Lte ekoen-ny of a.Lode. ira,
Cifford a-d ~;I o th thioLtght.1 yu ouuld beg in ,tie claTr a space for
the Lodje as you had tiire. I alLould loocte thu Lodge ae far
7aet on lheo hi.JhL ground as ;possible. FTrs. Gifford tullls me, on
both side of the road in buznt off spaoe is a v1;ood daa3. of
water "tanding all the time. tA soon as the Drainage Distriot
is arranged, 7no will have o -e Lct sone ditol-es proba, l)3 to let
this water off, so ycu frill IhaW to plan to build on a bii;h
ground, aa.we could not afford the expense of TIlliftguit and she
thinks there is a place hib.l anoujhh -,herz we have nudicoatad the
location of the Lodge. X am enclosing a little map, as I stated
you probably drew for her, Sho nay be able to nake the location
More clear to you, as she knows the gromud better than I. I
think tn locating The LodL e away from hbe other grove, we oan
pl.nt the grounds around sar.e better(

favor of a. site near the entrance. You may know. k,11 these things, 'nd ,K-
if so, this discussion is unnecessary, but it is because it is so hard to
6get 11 angles ,t such a distance th.t I have nnoyed you further on the
subject. :
Our par-; sounds so large to outsiders thp.bve are in danger of disappo.int
ing the ordin-ary tourist mhen they find they cr-n really get. .t so little ...'.
of it. The trails are lovely for the nature student, but the Roycl Palm
Hotel and PJA m Beach people are fond of seeing things from the c:r (not
us-ially dressed for tramping), and we wish to please. them all- do ,we not? '
y., the Building:- if we can get money enough, even for stucco-I .;:
should approve of its choice over concrete, -s the latter would seem far
beyond us; but the wood building is of course the cheapest-in spite of *'.
expense of nhuling, as the clerk in Mr. DeGenno's office, suggested that as
long as the wood frame had to be built in any event, we could leave put-
ting on lath and stucco until a later-date, so it seems that the hauling
need not be a bar to selecting a'wood building. I have seen the all wood
stained building somewhere- I believe it is the Alpine Tavern on Mt.Lowe,
Cal. As I remember it, it was stained inside and out, board walls, beams,
&c. a-d the effect in such a rustic beauty spot of absolutely simplicity-
almost to crudeness is wonderful, and appeals to all.
In our climate one thickness of boards is enough, and as he suggested,
boards put up and down, battened outside, and with panels running around
where second story is added, makes a pretty finish outside, and a good
flat finish inside, and one step further is to batten the inside also,for
a pretty effect. Brown or green stain is beautiful$ lasting, and cheap- '
rough stain finish inside, ceiling and all, is so much more artistic, as .
well as cheaper than smooth finish boards.
Mr. H. Gaston Drake, of the Drake Lumber Co.- mills at Princeton, is
seemingly a very kind and public spirited man, an'd first of all he should
be asked for a large donation of lumber. I have no suggestions as to best
way of approaching him. Mrs.Taylors husband is an employee of the mill. ,
.I think you will realize what a-genuine interest I feel in this whole
matter when I tell you ~tJt on the same mail with your letter, was a let-
ter from my only sister^effngme that she had just learned that my .,,
'Mothers, illness of past six months has finally been diagnosed as incur-
able cancer, and it is a question'of. time, so I must go very soon for an
indefinite stay. I regret so much not being able to help carry on this
work, and I fear there is no one in our Club who could fill the position,
as those who are capable are not situated so they could be of any.assie- ';.'
S tance at the present time, unless it should-be Mrs.R. L. Moser, and I
doubt her being willing to accept.
In my opinion Mrs.Moore would be more capable of judging who to put in *
my place than anybody else. I will see her, and in the meantime I wil l-
have'time to recieve a reply from you before leaving, and will give any
information I can 'of the *ork, so far- to whom ever you suggest' to carry.

Mrs. W. S. Jennings,
1845 Main St.,
CI TY.


My dear Mrs. Jennings:

Referring to our telephone
conversation, I beg to state that our
governors have offered a A25.00 scholar-
ship to one of your workers in the can-
ning club contest. This, as I understand
it, is the expense incurred in a Short
course at Gainesville.

Vg truly yours,



Secretary,
JACK ILLE CHAMBER OF C OaMlERCE.
