The Honorable John Bailey
Mayor of St. Augustine
St. Augustine, Florida

Dear John:

In accordance with your request on the telephone today, and after a
meeting of the Hispanic Garden Committee, we have requested our landscape
architects to write to you and give you the detailed information regarding the
matters which we discussed in St. Augustine when you were kind enough to be
present at our meeting.

You will remember that they included the construction of the wall ad-
jacent to the parking lot on the Last side of the garden; planting of ficus-pumila
(creeping ivy) on the short wall on Hypolita Street; the restriction of the bright
lights in the parking lot should be studied in relation to the Garden and before being
installed; water outlets and electrical conduits to be installed prior to the paving,
etc. I believe there were to be some palms along the city wall also.

In the very near future we feel certain that you will hear from the
architects; however, if you do not, please feel free to telephone them: Mrs.
G. O. Gj oerloff, Route 1, P. O. Box 175, Apopka, Florida 32703 Tel. 305
886-3732; Mrs. Frank Schroll, 4816 S. Sunset Blvd. Tampa, Florida Tel.
813 831-6761.

If we can be of any further assistance to you and the Commission,
please do not hesitate to call on us. I am enclosing a list of our members which
might be helpful to you.

After many telephone calls to Charlie Bennett in Washington, to Mrs.
Cjoerloff in Apopka, Mr. Landrum in Tallahassee, Charlie Ca .ipbell and Joe
Livingston, I thought it best to send you all of this information. Please return

same in enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope for our files. Daughtry
talked to Herb and told him I was writing to Landrum as Charlie Bennett sug-
gested when I called him in Washington. Herb said it was O.K. You, Earle
and Herb might go over this to see if we can get any more Federal funds. I
understand some of the funds have to be entirely spent by June 30th and believe
me, we can help them spend it on our Garden I

With warmest personal regards, I am

Cordially yours,

(Mrs. C. D.)


Mr. Herbert Wolfe
Mr. Earle Newton
Mrs. G. 0. Gjoerloff
Mrs. Frank Schmoll
