Cocoanut Grove, Florida., August 1916.

Dear Friend of Florida I

The Florida Federation of Woman's Clubs has undertaken
the greatest conservation work of any organization of women in
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 to be 100 feet in
height, together with more than 60 varieties of trees, rare or-
chids, ferns, vines and beautiful tree snails. It is a wonder-
ful tropical jungle, said by scientists to be the most unique of
its kind, known in the United States. 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 properly conserved; if, with the increas-
ing flood of travel ever turning southward;- with a million tour-
ists last year, and more each succeeding season;- if, we make the
"Lure of the South" irresistable, by "multiplying Florida's
attractions".
A Park endowment of 960 acres was given by Mrs. Henry
M. Flagler, making 1920 acres, including Park. The plan is to
keep the endowment, if possible, for the development of botan-
ical gardens. Thirteen miles of Ingraham Highway will be com-
pleted from Homestead to the Park by about September first. Four
miles of paths have been cut through the Park. The Park is a
game preserve and a bird sanctuary, quantities of birds being
fed now by the warden.
AS THE WARDEN IS LIVING IN A TENT AND WE HAVE NO PLACE
TO RECEIVE VISITORS, our chief concern at present is the erection
of a Lodge, which should be finished for the Federation meeting
in Miami, November 21st. to 24th. The last Federation Board
meeting in Tallahassee authorized the building of a Lodge to be
Finished for the inspection of the Federation, at which time the


I


U


Ilori a eeration of Women'B (tlub








formal opening will take place. Plans are being made by the
local committee to take the entire convention to the Park, for
this occasion. By winter we intend to be prepared to serve re-
freshments to auto parties and have a few rooms to rent to scieen-
tists, conducting research work ,
The Dade Co'nty Commissioners appropiated $1000.00, for
Park purposes. A short time ago a ca!nmp.igr! was inaugurated to
raise a "Mile of Dimes", .-!6356.00 tind more than $1000.00 has been
realized for the Park fund. If the million residents of Florida
would each contribute a dime, $100,000.00 could easily be raised
for .the work and that would solve the problem of maintenance and
development for some years. We should have for immediate use,
for building purposes, by most conservative estimate, not less
than $500000.00, but $10,000.00 would permit more substantial and
permanent improvements.
We are taking this means of presenting the Park for
your consideration and are inakirng 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., Cocoanut Grove, Florida, and rernail this
"Chain Letter" to a friend and they are to do the same. If you
have received a letter before, or do.not care for any reason, to
make a donation, kindly remail to a friend, so that the chain
will not be broken. We are asking those who read the published
letter to respond without waiting to-receive one.
All questions will be answered pr.-mptly. Remember, if
those who live in Florida, pu. f.--th one tenth the effort to en-
hance Florida's attractions, as do the Californians for their
state, Florida with her wonderful climatic conditions, resources
and beautiful natural growth woul6 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,

Mrs. John Gifford,
Chairman Royal Palm State Park F.F.W.C.,
Cocoanut Grove, Florida.

Mrs. Gaston H. Edwards,
Chair asn Conservation Departrerent F.F.W.C.,
Orlando, Florida.

Attention is Invited To What Eminent Scientists Say

Concerning the Park



Dr. Charles T. Simpson, of Little River, Florida, in an article appearing in the April number
of The Tropic Magazine, said: "I have been over all the warmer part of Florida including the lower
keys, throughout the length and breadth of Cuba, the Republic of Haiti, the entire island of Jamaica
and quite a little of Spanish Honduras. I have sailed thru the lovely Bahaman Archipelago and
landed on several of its islands, I have visited the Bermudas and cruised again and again thru the
entire Mediterranean and down the West coast of Africa, but my eyes have never rested on any spot
on earth as beautiful as Paradise Key. It is' absolutely unique; it is a picture of unsurpassed beauty
set in a wonderful frame; the dome of the blue atmosphere forming the upper part of it; the wide
expanse of the Everglades its lower part. The whole effect is glorious beyond the power of de-
scription; the dark broad leaved vegetation, which forms' irregular outlined mass of forest is crowned
here and, there by noble royal palms, singly or in groups which cut the sky line with charming
effect. The whole hammock, seen from any point seems as tho it was the work of some great master
landscape gardner, and so it is ; it was designed and executed by NATURE. As I gaze with awe
Sand rapt admiration on this work of the Great Master I feel that it is perfect, as beautiful as it is
Unique and my heart swells with pride and patriotism because of the fact that Florida possesses such
a grand tropical forest-that it belongs to Dade county."


Dr. David Fairchild. Agricultural Explorer in charge, Bureau of Plant Industry, United States
Department of Agriculture. 'Washington, D. C., writes the following:
"It should not be difficult for any one familiar with the changes which have transformed the
wonderful hammocks about Mliami into residence sites for the wealthy, to imagine the popular
approval which the next generation will bestow upon the foresighted women of Florida who have
Saved Paradise Key for the eager-eyed botanist and nature lovers of America. It should be a
national monumennt. July 19. 1916."


Hon. W. A. MIcRae. Commissioner of Agriculture of State, Tallahassee, Florida, in a recent
article on: "Why Not The State Beautiful?" said: "The Federation of Women's Clubs is doing a
notable work, setting an example for men folks, in promoting the science of forestry and beauty.
Among its achievements is the creation of Royal Palm State Park, an estate of some 2000 acres
in Dade county, containing perhaps the finest colle-tion of royal palms, some of them 100 feet
high-to be found in this country, besides 50 or more varieties-in all a veritable wonderland."

Coconut Grove, Florida. AWuhst 1916.
Dear Friend of Florida:

The Florida Federation of Woman's Clubs has undertakenthbe
greatest conservation work of any organization of woman in theUHfittad
States. The last Legislature gave the Federation 960 acres of land 48
miles south of Miami, to be hereafteL known ,as Royal Palm State Park.
This contains the largest growth of tbyal Palms in the United States,
many estimated 100 feet in height, together with more than 60 varieties
of trees, rare orchids, ferns, vines and beautiful tree snails. It is a
wonderful tropical jungle, said by scientists to be unique of its kind
known in the United States. It is the only State Park owned by a Federa&ib
tion of Women, and will be to Florida what the big trees are to Califor-
nia It is necessary thatypau, as a citizen of Florida ,realize what
great assets the beauty spots of the State would be, if properly conserve
If, with the increaasngflood of travel ever turning southward;- with a
mEllion tourists last year, and more each succeeding season;- if, we .
make the "Lure of the South" irrisistable, by 'multiplying Florida's
attractions".
A Park endowment of 960 acres was given bt Brse HIany M.
Flagler,making 1980 acres, including Park. The plan is to keep the endow-
ment ,if possible, for the development of botanical gardens. Thirteen
miles of Ingraham Highway will be completed from Homestead to the Park by
about September first. Four miles of paths have been cut through the Park
The Park is a game preserve and a bird sanctuary. Quantities of birds
being fed now by the warden.
As the warden is living in a tent and we have no place to
receive visitors, our chief concern at presentits the erection of a lodge
which should be finished for the Federation meeting in Miami, November
21st. to 34th. The last Federation Board meeting in Tallahassee authorize
the building of a lodge to be finished for the inspection of the Federati
at which time the formal opening will take place. Plans are being made by
the local committee to take the entire 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 age a campaign was inaugurated to raise a a~ile
of Dimes", t6336.00 and more than $1000.00 has been realized for the Park
fund. Ifthe million residents of Florida would each contribute a dime,
-100,000.00 could easily be raised for the work and that would solve the
problem of maintenance and development for some years. We should have
for immediate use, for building purposes, by most conservative estimate,
not less than $5000.00, but $10,000.00 would permit more substantial and
permanent improvements.
We are taking t|is means of presenting the Park for your
consideration and axe 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 remail this "Chain Letter" to a friend and they are to do the same.
If you have received a letter before,or do not care for any reason, to
make donation, kindly remail to a friend, so that the chain will not be
broken. We are asking those who read the published letter to respond with
out waiting to receive one.
All questions will be answered promptly. Remember, if those
who live in Florida, put forth one tenth the effort tbeenhance Florida's
attractions ,as do the Californians for their state, Florida with her
wonderful climatic conditions, resources and beautiful natural growth
would soon become a veritable garden of eden.
"Florida Beautiful", should be the slogan. A strong pull_1
a long pull- a pull all together success.

Yours. for Florida FIRZ@

SYENTION IS INVESTED TO WHAT EMINENT SCIENTISTS SAY CONCERNING THE PARK.'
Dr. Charles T. Simpson ,of Little River, Flor&da, in an artiol
appearing in the April number of The Tropic Magizine said:-
0 I havebeen over all the warmer part of Florida including the lower keys
thruoutnthe length and breadth of Cuba, the Republic of Haiti, the entire
island of Jamaica and quite a little of Spanish Honduras. I have sailed
thru the lovely Bahaman Archipelago and landed on several of its islands,
I have visited the Bermudas and cruised again and again thru the entire
Mediterranean and down the West coast of Africa, but my eyes have never
rested on any spot on earth as beautiful as Paradise Key. It is absolute
ly unique; it is a picture of unsurpassed beauty set in a wonderful
frame; the dome of the blue atmosphere forming the upper part of it; the
wide expanse of the Everglades its lower part. The whole effect is glorio
beyond the power of description; the dark broad leaved vegetation which
S forms irregular outlined mass of forest is crowned here and there by
noblenroyal palms, singly or in groups which cut the sky line with oheram
ing affect. The whole hammock, seen from any point seems as tho it was
the work of some great master landscape gardener, and so it is; it was
Designed and executed by NATURE. As I gaze with awe and rapt admiration
SI on this work of the Great Master I feel that itj is perfect, as beautiful
as it is unique and my heart wells with pride and patriotism because
of the fact that Florida possesses such a grand tropical forest- that it
S belongs to Dade County.""
Dr. David Fairchild, Agricultural Explorer in Charge, Bureau
of Plant Industry, United States Department of Agriculture, Washington,
D.C., write nthedf8l1setni prt~ent of Agriculture ,Bureau of Plant

.The toyal Palm State park comprises 1,920 acres of laLd. ,
960 acres of tpis having been ceded to the F F W C by the State of Floricd
on June 15th., 'and .a like amount granted to the Federation as a git' from :
-Mrs. Henry Flagler. It is the only State park in the U.S. created by a
le""geislative act. A large part of the land is prairie, while the: wonder-
ful tropical jungle', in"' erly'day's-.known .as paradise .ey, later as Ry.l.
palm Haimmock, lies entirely within the boundaries of the park.
Dr. J. K. qwnall says that the growth on this and-other hammocks .ii the
near by cape sable district is unique in being different from any" oteer
in the world, anid it isnhoped that the park can be financed without .el-
ling the endowment land given by Mrs. Flagler, and th&t*in time we may
develope-a botanical garden which from a standpoint'of a collection $'f
rare plants, may equal the wonderful gardens.-of java, and to that end,
the first money being raised aside from private donations-in larger Hounts
is by tne effort of the Federated Clubs in raising a mile ot. dimes.

struct your men not to allow any one to remove any plants, or to
shoot in the Bark.
I note that the road was named by Resolution by the
Board of County Commissioners of Dade County at the request of
the Federation, Ingram Highway. Mr. Jennings has promised the
way signs for said Highway and will place them as soon as the
road is in proper condition. Will you kindly announce the office&
name, Ingram Highway, to the crews under your direction, and from
now on assist in having it called by its right name. ,
I have taken the matter of the Smrnouta hie.~ t'hee
Park trees with Mr. Pearce and he is taking the matter up with / i,-
prompt, att-etien. n
7 I trust you will be able to rush the road to comple-

My dear Miss Myers:-
As you have been informed previous to this,
just how the Scholarship pf the Florida Federation is awarded, I pre-
sume it is not necessary to say, again, that it is given to the girl
whose name appezas on the waiting list, according to dates of applica-
tion. If first on list, for any reasons of hsr own, she decides not
to take this course, then, saoond applicant is eligible.
uisa Faith Robinson, of Plant City, has been awarded the Soholar-
ship for this year. As you are next on the list, would you care to
accept what is known in the College, asa a Dining-room Scholarship?
This, of course, means that you are to assist in the diniig-room, but
the privileges of the College would be enjoyed by you, just the same
as any other student. If you care to accept this place, please let me
know by return mail, as there are many applicants waiting. I cannot
promise this for a certainty, but the Federation will use it's in-
fluence for you.
Awaiting your uarly reply, I am
Very cordially,

My dear Mrs. Jennings:-
I received Faith's note of acceptance, last night.
She wrote me from Tampa, mail having been forwarded to her.
Am enclosing copy of letter to her, also, copy of one to Miss Myers.
Miss Helen Parker, has asked for the Domestic Science Course, but
of course, might change her mind, just as Faith did. Am sending
Miss Myer's letter, Special Deliver. As soon as I hear from her, will
let you know. I wrote Miss Harris, telling her of Faith's appointment
also, asked her to use her influence for the Dining-room Scholarship
for the next girl on the list. Have not heard from her.
Mrs. McGuire came up to see me, this week, and she is so pleased
over the idea I gave her, regarding the School Improvement Association
joining the Woman's Club and in this way they would gradually drift
into the Department work, which some of them aze so anxious for.
Mrs. Me. was so interested in the Scholarship award and thinks she
can send me quite a little help, financially, as this seemed to ap-
peal to the Literary members.
Please send me list of new Clubs, that I may write regarding
funds. I do want to raise every dollar I can, before the Federation.
You have certainly met with wonderful success, raising your
funds. You certainly do undertake big things, and do them.
With much love to you,
Most sincerely,

Dr. David Fairchild, Agriculture Explorer in Charge,

Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir:
I have read your letter of recent date, with muoh interest
and thank you for same; also for the expression of coimnencation which
I printed on the back of the chair letter for the Park a copy of
which you will find inclosed .

This I feel sure will be of uim~ed help to uo. It is nly pur-
pose nov to have the Dedication of the Park about noon of Thursday,
the 23rd of November. Our Federation meets at Miari from the 21st to
the 24th. The local committee is preparing to taKe the entire Convention
to the Park for the day.
ly
I have tried very hard to get Secretary Lane for the Dedica-
tory address but feels that it will be impossible for him to definite-
plan to leave Waahington at that time. I shall be forced to make other
arrangements of course. I should like very much to have you present on
the occasion and give us about ten or fifteen minutes talk on what you
think of our work along the lines of conservihtothe natural scenery, the
worth of this conservation movement to Science.

You know my intention is to save the 950 acres given by
Mrs. Flagler for the botanical gardens. It is my hope some day, that
they may rival the famous botanical gardens of Java. Of course we have
no hope of the scenic beauty which is found in the Java gardens, such
as mountains and waterfalls, but we can construct water ways, and have
a very wonderful collection of plant life.Certainly I am going to
look to you to help me.

We are of course not prepared to undertake this at present,
because we st find the money first. The gardens of course would have
to be firs aid out with great ,care. I have gone into detail with the
above #.-t Sight explain more thoroughly why, I would not be in

*t .^, .. ** .. .k -.












favor of turning the Park and Endowment over to the 'Government just
at present. It may be that if we get the botanical garden well started
they raking of the Park a Nation'al Monument, might be considered.
If we cculd be assured that cur plhsis would be continued. I had known
- of course that these Monuments L!cre ni:de by executive order, but I
had not gone into the detail of the proceedings.I should be very glad
Sif ycu will give me the infonration of just bow to proceed in detail,
as of course it might be possible we could not carry the expense of
keeping the Park and would have to appeal to the Government for aid
in this way, I

Rest assured I shall always appreciate greatly your as- *
distance intthe matter of the administration of the Park and its
affairs. We expect to ask our Legislature for an appropriation for
Park development and I think that there is now a sentiment deyetal- ,
lttgg, so that we could secure ?5000 per v-nu m, which we expes; to
ask for. We feel that this ie much of an educational measure as it
will be to secure money for building purposes.

My father's last illness occurred at Mt. Desert Island
and he died in .. honitail in Bar Harbor, about two yea-rs ago. I wa
called there very suddenlyy on account of his illness, and. w' hil I only
had few very anxious days there, I could not help but notice the beauty
of the country, and notice the most luxuriant perennials I have ever
seen :rowirin in a garden about a rile out of tcn, prob&ibly omned by
Lhi3 sa We Mr. George P. Door.

FlWih best of good wishes, and thanks for r -yor -ssistance,

Sincerely,

Prcsoidont VJoman's Club of Palm besch. It sers they sent thei5*.00
subscription for the Endowment Fund to you by mistake. Please take
the rmattcr up with Miss Jackson, and have the Rndowment Fund credit-
ed with such amount. I wrote her asking if they could not ivoe the
Park a like amount also.
I wish to call your attention to a copy of the
letter from Ir. DeGarmo. This of course, makes it impossible for me
to have him redraft the plans as a hose that would cost $2500 would
mean paying him 3j, and that would be i75 and so on as the price of'
the building increased. We have to work too hard for our money to Be
able to do this. I understood from yourthat the pencil sketch was
to be completed gratis, Of coarse I rather thought that may be we
would have to pay a little for the specifications, and while I appre-
,ciate very much his offer of doinz the work for one-halftof the a-
mount of his usual charges, these circumstances delay our work dread-
fully. As the State employs an architect for certain specified work,
it m-ay be I could either g3t him to give the plans or specifications
or failing this, to get the Governor to permit him to dou auie for us.
If I do not succeed, I shall have to get irr/ Jennings to have it done
in his office as he has a very fine draftsman working there. His
force is very busy however, and he does so much for me for the Feder-
ation, that I dislike to ask this. The house that we live in is larg--
er than the one of plans submitted St iLr. DeGarmo, and it only cost
$6000. It is well built and has every convenience. I have no idea
of paying more than $2500 in the building, 3000, at the outside. Of
course you see there is nothing loft for me to do, but to thank him
for what he has done, and ask him to return plans, as I have done. I
was afraid that he would charge if I wrote aim, and that was the rea-
son I was anxious for you to finish out the*'&ea,. Under the circum-
stances it will have to be a closed deal. This makes it very hard on

d. ____


I ,I I r I I . r __ .Lsa













me, as I supposed it was all settled. Had I known in advance, I
could have been prepared to have some one else to do the work. I
had hoped to have the plans and probably the bids for the 24th and
25th of this month; but of course this will be impossible now.

I got off 500 of the chain letters -aturday, and sent you
25 by mail unaddressed. I have the remaining 500 of the first thou-
sand almost already to go. Will you kindly let me know how many more
to send you? Mrs. Moore has sent a list for Aiami. I have sent lett
a letter to the members of the Legislature, Boards of Trade, County
Commissioners, County Judges, County Superintendents of Public Instra e
tion, all state officers, all members of Congress and Senate, besides
three to each Club. I will get list of inspectors next, and I am'
making Lp a special list of my own.
I am terribly disappointed over the plans, and I am impa-
tient at the delay. With this new complicatton arising, I fear we
shall not have building finished by November.
7xvect to go to Glen Springs for a week or ten days in a
day or co. I ami worn out. Continue to write me here. I will get mail
all right, and I may not be able to get away.

With best of good wishes.

Sincerely,

Mr. Chas. A. osier,
Little River, Fla.
My dear Mr. Mosier:
I just have a letter from Miss e A.e, in rlhich she
mriakes a report on your condition, as well as on the Park and on the
road. I regret that you autl not able to return, but I really feel that
it would be nore 'rise for you to get ycur fregth-'ac.a. little 1bfore
attempting the long trip. I should iagine that it wculd not ba-..abad idea
for you be go to Homestead and Mtay one night before aittemptinu the
trip further. It may be that you will not be ible to get into the Park
with your machine at all. But later when we connence to build, your
presence will be so very necessary to the work, that I advie that you
get perfectly well before attempting tp go tof the-.e'k. I rather think
from this that Mr. Pierce ,a, oi fdutsthaft E'I letter fron- him
recently. I am sorry tiat' tha water is so high around the Park and
that the road is in such a condition.

Mr. Duncan assures me that the road will be fin-
ished into the Park between the middle and last of this month, although
not hard surfaced. I have asked him to keep me posted, and will let
you know any changes in his plans. Ofcourse their levelling the road,
after plowing will go very fast, as they use the big rollers.

Trusting that you will be restored to your
usual goddhealth very soon, and with best of good wishes to yourself
and family.


Very truly,


I I II I sis I I I

Aug. 9, 1918.
Mrs. T. E. Evans, President Woman's Club,
Homestead, Fla.
My dear Mrs. Evans:
I have at last decided to set the time for the Park
dedication, and also dedication of Ingrahan Highway, which will all
take place in the Park, about 11 o'clock or an hour and a half before
tirrme to serve lunch. I think now that Thursday the 33rd, will be the
best all round,and works into my program better than at any other time.
Senator Fletcher speaks for us Wednesday night the 22nd, and he and his
wife, will probably go with us to the Park, at least he will b invited.

The night of the 23rd, when we get back to Miami, we
shall have Mrs. Little's program on Shakespearian women, at the school
auditorium, which will make a splendid ending for a beautiful day. I
am tryinL to arrange a very splendid program for the Park,and I know you
will be pleased with the arrangements.

As soon as you can,let me know about whether your
committee expects to take the Convention in machines from Miami, or
from Homestead; because, if from Homestead, we should begin to make our
arrangements with the railroad about rates, and so forth. Please let me
know as soon as you decide what is best. Your committee can appoint from
each Club a committee, to assist with refreshments to be served to the
Convention and its guesta. We shall want to invite everybody in the
country who cares to come, but we shall make it plain, that they are to
bring their own basket lunch. It might be possible to get sight-seeing
cars to make a special excursion rate to the Park, from as far up as
Fort Lauderdale and down. Please keep me posted that we may get our plans
all perfected, so that there will be no hitch. I wil be glad to have
any suggestions you may care to make. I am glad we htve at last secured
an agreement from road builder to save the Pakk, and\we will enlarge
our pit instead of making ditches on each side of the road.

I want to thank you aghin for notifying me of the
intention to dig ditches on the sides of our road. I as so far off, that














I have to depend on the members of the committee to keep me posted,
and I certainly appreciate your interest. I am so glad you accepted the
Chairmanship for the dedication, as it is.quite fitting, on account of
the fact that you were one of the committee making the first trip
to the Park, to decide on its acceptance by the Federation.

With warmest regards and best wishes.

Sincerely,



Pres. F.F.W.C.

J.iy Dear Mrs. Jennings:

Of course I should have preferred that Mrs. More had not

written Mrs. Shepard, as I wanted to get her interested through the family,

and not have her think we had planned a descent upon her, but it is all

right. Three letters have gene to Miss Palen who is the cousin nearest and

dearest to I.rs. Shepard, and Carrie writes again today. My hopes may be

beautifully crushed,but I'11 look for good luck till the bad comes. I also

told Liss Palen that I wanted to interest Lirs. Sage in the Bird Resecvation

plan and told her about the Flamingo, the Ibis and the Curlew, asking her

if she could introduce either the subject or me to Mrs. Sage. Nervel

Letters have gone to two other sources in the family of which I have some

hope.

Mrs. Mumby sent the application from the Okeechobee Club, but had neglec-

-ea to have It properly signed, so it has to go badk, but will be ready fori

the Board Meeting, which, Providence permitting, I .-hall a4tSerd. Mrs. Den-

-ham, the new Presitent of the Progressive Culture Club, has appointed Mrs.

Harry .ilson to :elp me labor'with the club at Courtenay, whiah I have been

trying to influence for more than a year. I think I shall stop at Titusville
on my way back from Sanford, and try a personal appeal. Am very much inter-
-ested in a possible club at Oak Hill. Sent a book of a letter on the sub-

-ject, to Miss Adele Patillo, who lives at Shiloh, but have had no reply,

which is sometimes encouraging. Also I am hammering away again at Jupiter.

Told them that they ani Sebastian are the only breaks in the chain of East

'oast clubs,and urged them to mend the break. Have not heard from my last

there, from which I take courage, since I':rs. Pennock is usually very prompt

in answering, if she has anything definite to report. Will go down again if

they give me a chance.

The Saint Lucie County clubs are to held a meeting on Thursday, Aug. 17th.

at Vero, guests of the Woman's club there,with the intention of forming a
County Federation. The work to be taken up first, and about which the clubs

are perfectly wild,is the planting of the Dixie Highway right of way. It is

going with a rush. Lra. Lewis ha.; been asked to preside. I think I told you

that our club board has created a Com. on Country Roads; already we have put

out a good many Eucalyptus trees.

M1rs. Frank Harris of Vero has again asked me if it would be possible for her

to get several year-books, for sale among the Vere women. She thinks she could

dispose of almost a dozen. Told her I would find out. She is anxious for the

information to be gotten out of them. She is a bright little woman,but, I

suspect, not entirely in sympathy with the present administration at Vero.

I trust that Bryan is on his feet again. My girls are well but too far

away. Elizabeth is counting on coming home the last of September.

With love,

Sincerely yours,

btL. it

Mrs W.S. Jennings,
Jacksonville, Fla.,

My dear Mrs Jennings:-

Your letter of the 8th inst. to hand. In regard to
my making an address on the dedication of the Ingreham
Highway, I am perfectly willing to do this or anything
else I can to help out in this great work. But as I am
not a speechmaker I am afraid I could not give credit :-'
to this occasion. I would suggest thatliGovernor Jennings
make this address.
He knows much about the benefit this road will be
to the public as well as I do, and I know he will do
it justice.
I will be glad to talk it over with him before-hand
and if I could give him any information I would be glad
to do so.
I think the Florida Federation of Women's Clubs
are doing a great work and I will be glad to lend my
assistance in any way I can. I believe the time will
soon come when every tax payer in Florida, especially
in Dade County, will appreciate what they are doing.
I hqve tried to make it a practice through life
that what I undertake to do,to do welland I do not
believe I could do justice to this address. Therefore
I will have to ask you to excuse me.
With kind regards to you and the Governor, I am,


Yours very truly,

Governor Park Trammell,
Tallahassee, ala

My dear Governor T ammell:

Our plan is to dedicate the Royal Palm
State Psrk, November 23rd, during the session of our
Convention at Miami, the 21st to 24th of November.

It is the plan of the local committee to
take the o nv mention to the Park for the ceremonies and I
would be very glad indeed if you will make a talk, taking
as your theme "Florida", on this occasion. About one half
hour is all thl:t we i -l uk. We are going to make this
the biSgest day Dade County has ever had, as it is the plan
of the committee to have a regular basket picnic. They
will arrange to serve the Federation and its guests with
lunch.

At the Bi-Ennial in Zfw York our Feder-
ation was given much praise on account of its lea1 in con-
servation work, designated as the "Preservation of Natural
See nery."

We will be very glad to have you and Mrs.
Trammell honor us on this occasion, and i shall write to lirse
Trammell personally.

With best of good wishes, I am,


Yours sincerely,

My dear Mr. Drane:

We are iniag to dedicate our Royal Palm State
Park during our Convention at Miami which meets the 21st to the
24th of November,

The local committee are arranging to take the
entire convention to the Tark on the 23rd. We are to have a
luncheon in the Park and our Dedication ceremonies there and I
want you, as the one to whom is really due much cr-edit for the
enactment of the law, to dive us an address of about one half
hour on "LXgislation for Conservation".

At the Bi-Ennial the Federation Was very much
held up as a model for other state Federations and commended for
taking the lead of all other states in conserving the natural
scenery, We are very glad indeed for this step forward for
Florida and want to make of this day the greatest day that Dade
County has ever had. The people from the county will be invited
to come aa the meeting will be widely advertised. We expect
to have a very nice programwhich is in process of arrangement
now. I trust it will be possible for you to come -nd bring
Mrs. Drans.

With warmest regards and best wishes to you
and Mrs. Drane in which Mr. Jennings and Bryan join,


Sincerely yours;

my invitation to be the guest of the Federation at its
Convention in Miami, November 21st to 24th, and regret

you and Mrs. Lane with us should you find it possible to

Our DeCicatlon will bo te Gay of the 2Ird

Hon. J. E. Ingraham,
St. ..usttine, Pla.

My dear 'Ir. Inr abam:
Our Federation meeting .will oeeur November 21st
to 24th at Miami. I have decided on the 23rd as. Dedication Day for
the Park and Ingraham Righray, unless something unforseen ha`Tens
that we should' hav to change this date to meet local conditions.
I em writing to ask you to make the dedication
address at the :ark. It is the intention of the local committee
to take the convention to the park, serving refreshments and having
a dedication program on the grounds. I think it is entirely prop-
er that you should do this as it is entirely through your persistent
efforts and interest that the Park hls been saved tothe -eonle of
Florida and it is most ifttin thnt you should deliver this a.dress.
I should say that as we are going to have quite a program that your
address might be limited to thirty or orty minutes.
I am writing to Hon. 3. A. Beloher, Chairman
Board of County Commis.sioners of Dade County to make the A.ddress
dedicating Ingrahrn Highway at the same time.
We are going to peas resolutions asking the
Board of Commissioners of Dede County to adopt the use of the
Federation colors which are green and gold, emblematic of the
orange and the leaf for Ingraham Highway.. Mrs. Kirk Munroe is
to draft this resolution to present to our Board at the meeting
this onth. The Forestry Chairman, Ars. a .A.. Clonts, will pro-
bably have a resolution psseed at the Board meeting also, asking
the County Cmadissioners to adopt the Royal Pulm for the green ana
some yellow flowering shrub to plant between. Besides this, it
is our nlen that the signs -hould c-rry the colors,


I think it is entirely proper that Mr. Bela

August 9th, 1916.

Mr. J. Deering,
60~ South Michigan :vs.,
Chicago, Ill.

My aear Mr. Dfeering:

I beg to thank you for your letter of the
4th inst. and the careful conelderatiln wvhieh you gave iy sug-
-gestion.

I realize fully that the outlay of money
on such a place as you are buildinnr at Miami is enormous.
Nothing should? pl.eae me better than my seeing the place fin-
ished and being i.:hcwn sare by the owner.

As the Federation is very busy Just now
in an effort to bull?. r lodge a d erect other necessary out-
buil .ings, we will probably not be able to take. up the matter
of this seenis drive with anyone else. I am going to leave
the matter .P it is in your hands for several months, hoping
you may find your way clear to take the matter up again, when
Syou have not to many important things of your own on hand.

We are going to have the i.;edication of the
Par- and Ingraham Highway on the 5rrd of Lovember. The looal
committee are arrpanling to take the whole convention to the park
on this day ana we are elso ar anging a very interesting pro-
ramn We will be .greatly pleased if you can find it con-
venient to be with no at this time,


Yours very truly,


I I I ' I

























August 9th, 1916.


Mrs. Thomas A* E ison,
Llewlyn Park,
West Orange, N. J.

SMy dear Mrs. ENdis on:

am writing to thanks you for your very
generous donation of ?ifty Dollars, which is greatly appreciated.

I have placed this station first on the
building fand of the lodge aa in the future, if we are so for-
tunate as to have vo visit the .Park you may know that your do-
nation was the first one toward the building. The Troasurer has
informed me that she has sent you a receipt for same, w ich I
hope will reach yo'i in dule course.

I wish to express again the appreciation of
the Fed.eration for -your inter st in their work.
You will be interRsted to know that the
recent bond issues wil1. carry the Tamiazi Trail on down to Sara-
S o t.' ,^.' .

With the best of good wishes:for yourself
and Mr. Edison nnd trusting- that you are enjoying a comfortable
summe r,


Very sincerely yours,

HomResteid, Fla.
My dear:- Ura. Loveland:
You will notefrorn the inclosed letter, that
1r. DeGarnio wants compensation for fini -hed plans and specifioc ti.ona
and this 'Jce d i.:e ruch to a to go into, I have thanked him for his
assistance e sr.d a asked him to return plans to me. I a' very disappointed
cf course. I had- thought thin was all attendedd to, although I had
asked Mrs. Gifford to secure a letter from him in which he would exactly
outline nhat he rould do.Sbe kept eaying, "Oh, he will .ive u1 the plans!
But you see hor it is. This will delay us dreadfully, but I will
either try and ,et qore acrhitect herq. o. ie ?S rl.-4pa or as Mr. Jennings
has a splendid effe in his office 'butia ,lr. Jennings has done so
tuoh for me for th Federation, and hi1s fore is so ousy, I dislike to
ask for this. We cannot however, afford to pay for the plans, and I think
the delay -ould be too great to wait on n a architect now or to go out
* and find one who would present us with the plane, and I juess if we have
to be delayed very ruch longer, we will not get the ,'ork finished by
TTo vemb er.

You see we have ,ot progreesdTivery much in the
last two or three weeks. I had hoped I coudl have the bids ready to
submit to the Board, but they will have to give me the authority to
proceed with the work, with you and your committee as advisory. As soon
as possible we shall begin actual work.

Mrs. Gifford is in Canada and too far off to
be of service,wand we would only be delayed further if we waited on her
opinion. I am going to rell on you and your committee to help me, and
we will do the best ve can tb-get the building finished in time I
have not been able to find out the difference in prices of materials, so
have not been able to decide what to build of. But I rather think tae
steel lath and plaster will be the driest, and probably the most inex-
pensive. The concrete is very substantial but so many have objected to
it on account of the dampness.

liMr. Moore writes me that you are going to the Beach for some
weeks. Please give me your address so that I may reach you easily.
With Irs. Moore and Mrs. Byrd so near, it will hot be hard to have a
quick conference. Just as soon as I can get the plane in shape, and
the bids in, will come down and we will definitely locate the place for
the Lodge.
Hr. Mosier expected to go back to the Park last Saturday, but
I have just had a letter from his daughter, saying he was too weak to s
stand the trip over the road, as it was in such a condition ; that
she made an attempt to get to the Park, on the 5th, but could only
get within five miles of it. She said the road through-the Park was
nearly finished. I took thoe matter of the turn-out up with ir. Pierce
and 9 rather think# that perhaps I will get it. Miss Alice informs me,
that Mr. Bradshaw has left and turned the contract over to Mr. Collins
you probably know both.

We would hardly be able to begin any work just now with the
roads in this condition. Any way, Mr. Duncan assured me that between
the middle .nd last of this month that the road would be passable, and
in good ohape, a1thourh they did not intend to put the hard surface
on at once.

Remember me also to Dr. lrd Mrs. Byrd, as I understood that
you are to be together. With ser and best wishes.

Sincerely,


E,

My Dear iMrs. Jennings:

I saw -red Evers a few days ago

and asked him how he would like to write an essay or

brief article on the work he has done since he has been

in the club work. He agreed to do it, and I am just in

receipt of his paper. I enclose copy of it to you.

His paper is very brief, but is told in his own

way and at the same time seims right to the point. He

did not discuss some things as much as I suggested, but

I am sending the paper on to you.

Yours very truly,

Auge" 2t, 1916.


Mrs. Kirk Munroe, President Woman's Club,
Coaoanut Grove, Fla.
My dear Mrs. Munroe:
I am very sorry that you feel as you do about the
resolution. I asked you to draw up this resolution, because you suggested
it., Mrs. Gifford has nothing to do with Ingraham Highway whatsoever. I
shall write the Resolution myself, and have the Conservation Chairman
present it, if she is present, if not will present it myself to the Board.

The Forrestry Chairvztn. -ha lives here, is planning
to attend the meeting, and written to the Nursery, finding out about the
flowering shrubs. I will also draw up the resolution to introduce it, and
will request the County Commisuiomirs of Dade County, to adopt the Royal
Palm for planting Ingraham Highway. I think it right that this Highway
be planted with Palms, yellow allamanders, and yellow elders. We may be
able to find other yellow flowering shrubs, but these would be very attract
tive, if planted between the Royal Palms. I hope this will please you.
Of course you know, we have notbfftoial right over the Ingraham Highway,
but we have adopted it ina way, and hake been permitted to name it.

I know you will be pleased to know that Mr. Ingraham
has consented to give the Dedicatory address at the Park on the 23rd of
NovembeC. As he has been the prime mover, and it is through his insistent
efforts, you might say, it was saved, I thought it only just thaagnition
of his services that he should be invited to make the address. I have
not succeeded in securing Mr. Belcher yet to dedicate the Highway. This
last has noteen made public to any one, and it will not be until the
Board meetie but as you are not going, I thought I might tell you.

WE have been to Glen Springs where I have been
drinking water for its beneficial effects. I feel much better, although
I worked constantly on the Park plans. I am sending you the stationery
as requested. I am so glad that you are to be at the meeting in Miami.

I have a letter from Mr. MoElenny of Avery Island













telling the story of how he started his birds. He had only eight that
he got from a nest, and raised them in a cage. He now has one hundred
(100) thousand white eigrettes. This was very similar to what I wanted
to do. He has offered to come to Florida and I shall wait before accepting
the birds and bird houses. I may find some way easier for us. I can get
white ducks whioh have been tamed at Brooksvile.* These of course Will
bring others. You see I have only a little over a year to work as
President, and I must get things well started on this bird Preserve, or
I feel it will not go on.

Sorry you are not to be with us at the Board meeting. Love and
best wishe s.

Sincerely,


Pres. F.F.W.C.

Yr2. Ch..A. A coier,
Warden Royl Sta,te Palm Park,
Sonenesated, Fla.
Dear Sic:
I iave both of yoi:r letters of recent date, aid I a. lQ.d you
will be bac in Park. I regret that the read 7ork is progreasin- so slowly
I shall appeal to the Board of County Conr:isaioners and Eninaers, and
see if they cannot hurry natters up, for I feel that the condition of the
road w11l r;re",tly delay the plans for the building ..-'f the Lodge, -und
it wvill not be ready for the tine set for the dedication. The plan of the
local "oomnittee, with Mrse. TS Evans as ch-zi.rn, i~ to take the entire
convention to the Parl: tt thick time; besides, inviting the public from
all around to bring baaket lunches, and enjoy the dedication ceremonies.
We will not only have the dedication of the Park, but also the dedication
of Ingraham Highway, and of course ve want to have things in nice shape
*as it will be nossib&e to do so. I think it either rean~ the successs or
the failure of the Park work for the reason that if we succeed in having
things in goQd condition, when the women come for their visit, they will
be $ntwrested, and will work to see it sa perfected, but otherwise they
would be discouraged. This is why I sm so anxious that we have thintsin
good shape, so .a to nake a good inpresnion.

Mr. Jares Deering does not think it possible that he will be
able to riake the scenic drive no,,and I have ashed him to take it under
consideration, and hope for a favorable outcome of this rintter later,

Mr; Motlenney has written me a long letter and sent data on how
he started his bird reservation. I a, reatEiy interested in reestablishing
the birds. When he cones 6o Florida, he has offered to visit the Park,
and help plan how we may attract the birds. He thinks that we should have
many feedingplaces throughout the Park, and have deed in them every day.
I am going to ask him to keep the birds he offered to give us until after
his visit which will be some time this winter. In the meantime, you can
feed, and work with the birds as you have been doing.


-A








Yes, my address is 1845 Main Street. I have not received the package
yet.

I wish you would answer thesEollowing questions as soon as possible:

Row near can we r.et good sharp sand for concrete work?

Is there any nearer th thi the Fl6rida City Beach, and would that sand
do at &sl. for the concrete eand plaster?

How near is the nearest mill to the Park?

Are there many rocks to be had that could be picked up to use in the
concrete without much expense, and would advise it?

The use of a 6ood i.any in the piers in the soft concrete mitit save
so iuch concrete by using rook as a filler. I an told that the soft rook
from tlhe pit, unless weathered, would not do, as it would not harden
quickly enough.

I ra havitt the plans made at Mr. Jennings's office to avoid the
cost of same to the Club Federation. I am going to aes you to hok.p a
close inTneotion over the building, as you will be on the grounds.
Judge Billingoley has offered to lAok over the Building at tinca -hen
we have to ?iake payment. So, with Mrs. Loveland, Chairman of the building
comnittie so near, I think there is no doubt that we can get alons without
an insQpetin- architect, which we cannot afford.

I wish you would see Mr. Dunoan if possible the next tine he comes
out and get his opinion as to when the road will be niatiatt _t.Ale oonditioi
so that we mny be able to haul materials. Ura. Gifford promises to be back
intabout two week.

I trust you are feeling stronger. With best of good utiahes to
yourself and family.

Sincerely,


Press. F.F.J.C.


























Aug. 23, 1916.

Hon. R. P. Tatum,
*Homestead, Pla.
Dear Sir:
Sometime ago, frs. Loveland wrote me that you had agreed
to help her secure from the owners oflandd on each side of the road
from Homestead to the Park a donation of 10 feet on each side w ioh
would make 60 feet right of way. I do not know if you have drasn up
the proper papers and had land deeded to the County Commissioners
of Dade County yet, but of course you know I should like very much
to hr.ve road 80 feet, as the other road is which joins the Park, bu-
I understood from lrs. Loveland that this probably could not be *accon
polished. But we must have more than we have to mai:e an attractive
road. I wih if possible tnna yaou uuld take this matter ap at
once 'and push it to completion. Our Pederation Board meets this week
and we are going to ask the County Commissioners of Dade County to
adopt the Federation colors of green and yellow for Ingraham Highway.
Our colors stand for the orange and leaf.

TWe are asking them also to adopt the Royal palm with
yellow flowering shrubs between. Our Forrestry Chairman has written
for the names of suitable shrubs to be used Our plan would be to
plant the same shrub for several miles between the Royal palms. I
rather think the yellow lantana, the allander, ind the yellow -
elder will be fine, and it a83lbe possible that we can find some
other shrubs. .'e could certainly plant the yellow jessamine also.
Of course you understand, that we could not plant anything or aue
people living un ihe ro&d way to plant unless we had sufficient
right of way, so'this is my reason in asking you to hurry the matter
if possible. I ]ave had sketch rmde of scenic drive around the Park,
and have taken up the matter with some parts ant hope to succeed in
time. In The meantime, we are perfecting plans .nd expect to begin
the erection of a Lodge house, whioh is to be attractive, and it
will a great credit to that part of the County, although not expen-
sive.

As soon as the road is in sufficient order so that we
may be able to haul our supplies, we shall be glad. However the con-










tract has not yet been let,

We expect to have the Dedication of the Park and Highway,on
November 23rd, and ri. Ts E. Evans Is chairman of the oonmittee of
arrangeLents. It is the plan 'to rake te entire convention to the
.ark for the days and to invite everyone in the country around
to be present with a basket lunch, and take part in the dedication
ceremonies, You can greatly assist us by ooo rating with Mrs. Evans
which I feel sure you will do.

Thanhing you for '.sftstoooperation, I am,
Very truly,

Pres. ?.P.t.O,












Aug. 23, 1916.
'rs. E. 0, Loveland,
Longview, 1la.
2y dear Mirs. Loveland:
Your letter just received and I can thor-
oughly sympathize with you, as I have been an intense sufferer from
neuralgia nearly all my life until the last few ye&rs. The spells,
are not now so severe, nor'do theyylast so long. When'I see you ag In
we will talk the matter over, and maybe my experience will be of
aome service to you at least I.hope so-,
I am writing to Mr,. Tatum, of which I am in-
closing a copy of letter. I thought that as 'ie are going to take up
the matter of agitating the Highway, it might be better to get the
land in advance, and that mlay be writing to him now would help you
later. I have written -ir.,Deering leaving .ne latter of the Boule-
vard in his hands for several months. I told him we ";were so busy
with the Lodge building at present and that I would leave it open fT
a later decision from him, as he seemed so interested.' I hope for
good results.
I'have just returned from Glen Springs, S. C.,
where I spent eight days with Mr Jennings and Bryan, drinkingg
the water for iiy rheumatism. I feel soTiewhat better, although I
spent mnst of the time in working over the plans for the Lodge.
Mr. Jennings'office man is working on them at present, and they will
certainly cost the Federation not anything. We have no money to
build with, rnnd we certainly cannot begin by paying large fses and
for an architect, much as I night like to.
M, Mosier has gone back to the Park, but had
to leave his machine at the Marsh's on accountof the condition of
the road. He must have been very ill, fand I have cautioned him
about taking care of himself. I think with you so near, and with
iLr. Mosier on the grounds, ue shall not need an architect, and proba-
bly Judge Billingsley, rho has had much experience, has promised
me that he would look after the Lodge at tiv:es -ren the payments wer


W I I W I Ir I

were due for us. I will send blue-prints of building %s soon as they
refinished. I think we shall have to decide on steel laths and
plaster, and that 7e cannot afford to bhve concrete porches as I
had hoped. I am Anianging so that there will be a lavatory for the
women under the stairs with three toilets, also one on the back
porch with three toilets and wash bowls, accessible from the outside
as vwe1 as from the four foot hall running from back porch to the
front room. I think you will like the changes very much indeed.
They place our immediate necessities under the one roof, which of
course is desirable,

Mrs. Thomas A. Edison has sent us $j50, for the building
fund, and tirs. Gifford has received about $45, from the chain letter
already, I have still 600 the last to be sent out-of the 2000. Of
course the postage alone on these letters is an item, but this can ha
hardly be avoided. I hope for good results, and do not feel dis-
couraged about the plans, as we would have been delayed any way on
account of the condition of the road.

With best of good wishes.

Sincerely,


- I I I I I II

Pres. P.M.C.G















Trenton, N. J,


Aug. 24, 1916.

My dear Mrs. Jennings:

I send herewith my report and as I did
not hear from you about addressing it to Sanford, trust
that you will receive it in due Season before you leave
home.

I hesitated to say very much about the
building plans since the latest changes.

My arm gets very tired after much writing
and it is always doubly difficult to keep track of all
data when on the wing, but I trust that there are no
serious shortcomings in my report. Most of the dona-
tions responding to the chain letter are small amounts.
I have mailed two separate checks to Miss Jackson today,
as you will see in my account of amounts received.
The returns from Dime Strips I presume you do not wish
me to include in the Building Fund account. A number
of Dime Strips are still out and I will keep the account
separate unless you say otherwise.

We shall doubtless start South within
#en days or so. I think I ought to tell you now that
I shall have to be as good or as bad as my word and not
continue my Chairmanship beyond the year promised. You
had better take this up at the Sanford meeting so that
the field can be canvassed for my successor. I am unable
to express my regret that this decision has to be final.
we are likely to depart for foreign lands or be on the
wing again ere long, and the work calls for a more
stationary presiding officer than I am likely to be.
My interest in the park will not subside. You have
assumed a titanic labor. May YOU endure.

My love ever, and all good wishes.

We received S4 memberss from the 5 clubs. With these additional members,
our Federation membership is brought up to"6898 members in 128 olubs,
forty-nine 3lubTs having join-ed during- my administration. We have
however lsat Welaka, as they sent their resignation in, and we could not
persuade them to stay, and had to accept sane. Everybody missed you and
spoke cf you. I will not send any more bills foe stamps, until I have

return home in abott ten days. I have been having a rather buyL time.
Mr. DeGarnmo, the architect, who was to -ive the plans for the Park Lodge,
concluded he had given enough, when te wanted the blue p rints. He did
not char~ce anythingg for his services except, 3 percent of what we spent
on the building. This of course included inspection. So, I sent my
little vacationat the Sprince drawing plane, ard Mr. Jennings' man at
the office has them about completed, and we know we shall not haeve to
pay f.r them.

The Princeton Women 's Club has given two thousand feetfof first

in the United States, and I am -.pproaching the Club there to soe
if we cannot get a collection of the orchids also. In the meantime
will Iou look for an especially suitable rot, tl.at we r.ight call
an orchid garden, and where we might attach to trees, and establish
them. I think I should put them in a .lace that would not be too
often frequented by travelers, and which, required ,one guiding to
reach. You would also huve to Iut a '-.ign of rtirning, and that they
could not be touched. We may in tin.o f.-ako a wonderful s.ot of this.
I hav3 some other oroaid raisers in view. You probably know the
kind of soil and surroundings orchici like best, so X shall leave
to ycur judgment, the celeotion of a suitable s,)ot.

Do you think that the rock in the pit could be used as it
is dug, or would it have to be dried to be used for concrete work.

.ith best of good wishos for yourself and family.

Very truly,

Mrs. John Gifford,
38 J". State St., cHottcl Company,
S 'Trenton, N, J.
My dear T.Er. Gifford:'
I received your letter and report, and had. same
read at Bo.rri meeting. I am inclosinng letter to Mrs. Taylor uhich
explains full- the methods of I:rocedLre, and I will not have to
repeat them here, V'ith this offer of low rate for the lur.-ber, ani the
other reasons given to Mrs. Taylor, we will probably have to use The
rough lumber for the outside, and make It a good substantial build-
ing, ar'd that is really v.hat we'need.

I am so glad that youare coming home; however,
the building committee is taking hold, and af going to do good work,
I feel sure. I think we will tell the grower man that if he
will furnish us with magazines for the Federation meeting, and the
price list of same, that we will get the representatives of the cluls
to take home the magazines and try to get subscriptions at; that
time. I think this is best, then the Park committee can have the
money for the Park work, and the Eagazine can be sold through your
committee bythe club. I am inclosing a check for one dollar from
Miss Halligan, and her letter which I answered, and which you may
keep. Thank you for letter with .a6r1ignolosed. I would keep the
chain letter responses separate from the dime strips. I am lsari the
responses seem to be coming in so well.

I had not received any bill from I.r. Mosier,
F except this on which you send, which I rish you would approve, and
send on to Miss Jackson for the bill. Her address is St. Aloysius
Academy, Cresson, Pa.; put on all the letters you address to her,to
forward. I shall send bill for: corrugated irun and so forhh direct.
We can use this same Iron again n in building our garage later. I
think we can not do anything about Mr. Mosier's absence for the
three weeks, as he was ill, Pand of course he would be entitled to
a vacation Most business firms grant their employees a vacation;
but of course at another time, we would have to require that some one
be left in charge during his absence, to look after the property


I I- I I













cnd the grounds, as it would not be safe to leave it without none
one in charge. I feel cure he will make up as much of the time as
he possibly can, when he is stronger. I shall write Miss Jackson
this decision about the bill.

Hope you can manage to have a few hours here, as you come
:o'ith, so we can cgnfer about the work. I am returning ars. Smith's
letter also tho -f44tgrower's letter. *Vill depend on you to take.o
this matter up at the federation meeting, and if he will have
some copies to distribute, I think it will be a good idea. Se is
indeed generous.

With kindest regards to Dr. Gifford and love for your own
dear self, I am,

S Very sincerely,


Pres, PC.. 21.

they can be timed as it were and when you think they have done the work

Aug. 29, 1916.
Mrs. 2T. Evans, 1hr. F.P. W.0,,
Homestead, Fla -
. My dear Mrs. Evans:

I have been so busy getting ready for a Board
meeting, I have not been able to find Mrs. Gifford's letter with
list of Committee in same. I have finally found it. She calls the
committee the Transportatioa and Entertaimnent Committee, and I
should add for Dedication of Poyal Palm State Park on November 23rd.
' he members are jrs. Ju.ntkin ena irs, iinson. Of course if you wish
to call in Mrs. Byrd, a n3ie is Chairman 66 Advisory Committee, of
which you are a member. Mrs. Gifford will also be home soon, I
understand. I talked to mrs. Ioore about the plans and decisionsin
the matter, end she thinks that you. can get plenty of automobiles
to take the women down Che says this will be the only chance the
women will have to see the country around Dade County. And I told
her that whatever conclusions you came to would b satisfactAry
to me./I think it would be a good plan to invite Mrs. Moore to come
before you with her plans for securing the Miami Board c Trade,
and also t Mayor Tatum to cooperate with you in making the day
a success.

Anything you folks decide on will be entirely .-
satisfactory to me, only Let me know in time. If you decide to go
and corm .by Miami, I shall not ask the iast Coast for rate from
Miami to Homestead by train. Will await letter from you before
presenting request. That is the fare now from Miami to Homestead? '1
I feel perfectly sure that everything will be all right in your
handsand I am not worrying.

fiP, I. E. Ingraham will dedica te the Park, and \
I have not completed plans for the dedication of Ingraham Highway.
Will let you know later. It is altogether probable that Senator
and Mkrs. Fletcher will be present as he is to speak the night '
before to the convention. It is probable also that Secretary Lane
and iirs. Lane will come for dedication. Mrs. Jolh D. Sherman of
the G.P.W.O. will be present, and Governor Trammell we are plainigg














for. Of course it is hardly safe to give this to the papers yet,
as we do not want to advertise people who do not appear. However,
I will send you a program for the day, as soon as I possibly can
get it ready We want all the people round from far and near to
be present with their picnic lunches, and have a great.celebration
of it. Quite a number of the women are coming in' automobiles, and
of course they would not have to be provided for. But I think it is
safe to say that yoa would not provide for less than 250, and I
believe that 300, would be nearer the mark. This is going to be
the largest Pederation meeting we have ever had, and the attendance
will probably reach 600/ We had over 00, going and coming, you
know at Deland. Of course I have no idea that more than half of
these would go to the Park, but I certainly want it to be a fine
day.
I am working very hard on the Park plans and have them all
blue printed. Now the question is to get' the materialss ,and to get
as good prices as possible, and we will have to.have a good contract-
or to build. I have a list of quite a good many people but I
would like to have so.ie from you, and what you think of them. Of
course I would have to send you the blue prints and let them bid
on thework. ..

I am anxious to build during my administration and get the
Park work on a safe bass. Of course I shall continue to help with
this work if the inocmir.g President wishes.

'tet me hear from you as soon as you have your comnitteo
meeting and decide about the transportation and arrangements for
Dedication.Day,

With'warmest regards and best of good wishes.

Sincerely,

Pres. F.F.W.O.
