Dear Herbert:

Re: Tax Exemption Status of the National Society
of the Colonial Dames of America in the State
of Florida

Following up my phone conversation with you as of yesterday,
I am enclosing herewith copy of my letter to Honorable Ray
E. Green, Comptroller, and also copy of his reply to me. I
would like also to quote from a letter of Attorney General
Richard W. Ervin under date of January 16, 1962 in regard to
tax exemption status of The Saint Augustine Historical
Society: "Many of the purposes mentioned in the charter of
the St. Augustine Historical Society relate to public and
private education relative to the history of St. Augustine
and Florida under Spanish and American domination; this
shows an educational purpose. This being true of the oper-
ation of the society if found by the tax assessor to be non-profit
and it is being so operated it will be entitled to tax exemption."

The pamphlets sent to the Comptroller, in my opinion, definitely
show an educational purpose by the Colonial Dames in the
preservation and presentation of the Fatio House and the property
on which it stands and used in connection therewith should be
exempt from ad valorem taxes.

Anything that you or your Historical Restoration and Preservation
Commission can do to help in getting the property taken from the
County Tax Roll will be appreciated.

With best regards, I am




DRD:L David R. Dunham
