I received your letter of recent A~nte in '.~i-:hi h o
tonier me an appointment to your personal stclff as eite~~L-temem
w~ith the rank of colonel, andl I have delaysil rep~lyin~ until I h~ad
advised with my father in re~art there~to, and rs he~ has been absenlt
-rom the city for s~ome: days the matter has been unacvai~slably ot-
ponot until this time.
I. desire to thankr you most sincerely for the honor whiiich you
have thus tendered- me, andL under other 01~rcumsztances "I should fooll
proui, indeed, to accept the appointment, but my father advises me
that he has signified to youz his desire to receive the appointment
as Harbtr Master for this port, and it would therefore seen to us
that another appointment at your hands would look too much like
a family affair, rather inviting unjust criticism, anl for this
reason, and this reason alone, I feel that I must decline the honor
you have tendered me.

Key West, Florida,
January 31, 1905.
Hi s Excellency,
Governor N.B. b 1roarad,
Please excuse thre liberty I take in
addressing you. I an a widowr, without
money, family or friends. Before his death,
my husband went to Mdr. George Brooks, At-
torney-at-L~awr, in Key West, to make his
will. Mllr. Brooks told him that he would
like to read the law on. a few points be-
fore maing the will. In the meantime my
husband died. Mbr. Brooks will testify to
the incident, an to the fact that my bus-
band intended to leave m~e the place where
I am nowP living and q$800 in money. MyI3 hus-
band had frequently told mne this, in the
presence of his niece, who is also a wit-
ness in my behalf.
The lawyer who settled my husband's
affairs, paid mqy husband's bills out of
the $800 intended for as and gave me one-
third of w~hat was left. Myj husband's
children (lpy step-children) got the rest.
His children now threaten to take myp home
from me and put me in the street. Knowing
them as I do, I believe they will attempt
to carry out their threat.- Each of his
children has a nice home, well furnished,
while minne is old and leak~y, and they know
their father intended to makze his will and
leave no~ the house and also the money.
What shall I do? I have no one else
to appeal. to, and I sincerely ask that you
will kindly take som action to enable me
to keep my home.
Thanking you in advance for any ad-
vice and assistance which you may be able

TO H~IS EXCELLENCE.
N.B.BROWARD, GOVIERNR OF FOIDA.
I herewith submit for your consideration, theReport
of the Honorary Fish Commissionor, of the State of Florida, for
the years l905 ,908,
The persistent anta onism towards the efforts
of your Commiissioners, duinT previous years, in behalf of the
State and her peop'le,in protecting and propaTatingh~t her natural
food resources, and creatinE a revenue therefrom, culminated in
an Act of the L~egFislature, durinF; its last session, repealing
the Sections of the Statute, creatini- the Fish Commission, its
duties, and compensation, "thereby leaving : this most valuable
of the States food resources, of Fish and Oysters, to the
depredations of those who seek rather to destroy*, than preserve
this inheritance of posterity, and the methods whereby, these
Food products could be propargated, and protected according to
Law. This coupled with an intentional omission to pass a Relief
Bill introduced to compensate Mr John G Ruge, the former Secretary
of the Commission, for services since I~8,18 to which he was justly
due, equally with the Chairman of the Commission,who relieved his
salary in conformity to Law. This in itself was an injustice, and
should be considered by the coming Legislature, in appropriating
th snna"-mhamm eatesseJthesy a paid th~e Gha~rman,
the same amount as Salary,as paid the Chairman-
The matter of personal Exupenses, requisite to carry on the
work of the Commission, in3 the past both. itinerary, and clerical
was also ignored.
Under the conditions stated~the Fisheries and
Oyster industries which form such an important source of Revenue
to other States, when properly protected by L~etislative action,
are virtually abandoned, for want of Legal suervision by a
competent Comm~ission, and therefore subject to violations of
the Law in all localities, as is exemplifiedby the destruction
of the Oyster Beds for many miles in the Matansas,and St Sebastian
Rivers near St Augustine. The Sponge Fisheries have also suffered
devastation from the same cause, as~cited in the Report of the U,S,
Commission ofFisheries to the Secrdtary of Commerce and Labor,on
padres 13 and 26, for the Fiscal year ending June I906.
Your Excellency ,realising the conditions existing and
the motives of the opposition, in the antagonizing of the Fish
Commission, in the past, permitted the iill to become a Law
without exercising the Veto power, thereby leaving a clear field
for future Legislative action. In order that nothing might be lost,
in the way of a succession of Reports, or the Correspondence which
since IS98, had 'ocen kept up, which embraced inquiries from Foreign
Countries, as well as from nearly altl the States in the Union.
Mr John Y Detwiler, the Chairman of the Commiss-ion since L898,
was appointed as Honorary Fish Commissioner,without compensation,
he,:-agresingq to continue the work as in1 past years,rea~izing the
importance of the service to the State, trusting the 'Ieg~islature
of, 1907, would recognise the importance of action, after a further
realization of two more years of the depletion of the Fisheries,
the Oyster, and Spong~e industries.
The above statement;Your Excellency, briefly defines the conditions
as they now exist, since the end of the year 1904, the Report of
which emanating7 from the Chairman and Secretary, of the Florida
Fish Commission, virtually terminates the action of that body.
I ~In conformity to previous Laws ref-ulating the Florida
Fish Commiission, the Report was to be submitted annually to the
Governor, Ulnder the new conditions, the duties were assumed to
be mainly clerical, and in accordance with the best interests of
the1 State, as defined by the Honorary Commiissioner.
During the time elapsing since the adjournment ofl the
Legislatureo f l05,the work outlined was to reply to all
Correspondence of whatever nature addressed to the Comm~ission,
to send out the Reportsof 19303 and 1904 to the Fish Commissioners
of the several States, also to the most prominent Pulic Libraries,
wnere the Reports would be permanently retained for reference..
the nessessary postage and stationary being furnished gratuitously
by your Commissioner whenever required~ also keeping in touch as
much as possible,with the operations of the Commercial fishermen
and thereby acquiring valuable information for future use.
In the matterof information, your Commissioner is greatly
indebted to the Public Press tnroui7hout the State,many of the
Editors realizing the importance of thework engi-aged in, burnished
free of charge, copies of their papers.
Of thek itinerary work, of nessessity it has been greatly
curtailed, owing to lack of funds for exrpenses.Prom Pernandina,
south to Miami, along the East Coast, and short trips by Launch
from the head of the Halifaxi,to Indian River, embraces the limit.
Forinland transportation, courtesies have be n extended when
required by the Florida East Coast Railway.
In reporting tne success attending the planting of Shad fry
during previous years, authentic statements as to tlhe taking of
Shad in the Miami River in Dade County, the St Lucie River in
St Lucie County, also the Tomoka River in Volusia County, have been
recieved,showing that practical results have been obtained as
anticip at ed.
Itis sug;ested that a Memorial to Congressbe
submitted by the coming Legislature recoomending that the Musquito
Lagoon,be set apart as a Government Reservation, for the natural
propagation' and protection of the Mullet, and other native fishes,
this locality being their native habitat, the limits extending
fromthe south end of the Lagoon,and head of Indian River including
the Haulover Canal and its approaches,to such limits, as have been
found by investigation to be nessessary for their future protection
orom the depredations of Comimercial fishermen ,such locali~8 should be
forever exempt from Net fishing for commercial purposes.
During the month of December,I906B, the TT,8,BFish Hawk,
was ordered to New Smyrna, to investigate the habits of the
Mdullet,and ascertain their spawning grounds. After exhaustive
investigations by experts, it was ascertained that the Musquito
Lagsoon was the feeding grounds,, as well as the nursery of the
young Pryzand that the surf in the vicinity of New Smyrna inlet
was the spawning grounds of these most valuable Fish, the young
fry returning by the million, to the Riveron their way to Musquito
Through the kindness of Col Mh,J,0 B~rien #~resident of
tneSouthern Express Company, your commissioner has been the recipient
of valuable Statistical information, relative to the shipment of
Fish over the lines of the Southern Express Company~from all sections
of the State during the years I903 and 1904, too late however to be
included in the~revIious RPe Dorti but are now incorporated with this
aocument also to same sta istics for the years 1905 and I906.
When it is considered that these records are absolutely authentic,
and are comparative in their nature, embracing four consecutive
years, your Commrissionerfeels under great obligationsto the
Gentleman, for the courtesy extended in this particular.
It is hoped that in the introduction of a Billin the coming
Legislature, it will include a eeetiebnb section requiring a
License, for all1 engaged in Comm~ercil fishing, thereby creating a
Revenue, whereby the waters of the State may be replenished, and
provision made for the expenses of the Commission, as well as
providing Statistics, forfuture reference, that will prove a
valuable auxiliary, in the future developmentof our natural food
and marine products.

The lawyer strives with might and main,
The judges listen. quite intent;
But all his skill and wit are vain--
He cannot quote a precedent!i
And yet a parallel, a case
Just like the one for which he looks,
In the Reports, has taken place.
Though not reported in the books !"
