Honorable N. B.Broward,

My dear Broward,
Please be informed that money and the Railroad

influence will be used here to elect W.Hlunt Harris for State

Senator, wpho is the poorest representative that this county

has ever had and I would most earnestly desire that you

would see Hon. Jefferson B.Browne and arrange to meet me at

Fort Myrers with Browne, yourself or a man representing you

and show how little the said Harris has done either for Mon-
%85
roe or Lee County.

When I: was talking to you at Talldhassee about

the Senatorship you informed me that you did not want Hunt

elected under any ciroumastances.

- I have seen Semple and will assure you positive-

ly that he will be with you in any and all your measures for
the benefit of the state.

ery and do me the favor to come to~ Fort Myers

with Browne, myself and Semple at any date you may elect.

Very sincerely Yours,




I I I I II I I I ..

Personal. March h 906

Honorable N.B.Broward, Governor,

Tallahassee, Fla.

M~y dear G1overnor:-
I: beg to acknowledge receipt of your recent kind
favors.

Regarding the matter of thne Greek: Spongers; there is much
excitement here over this affair and the people believe that
their sponge industry is seriously threatened. The lettters'
which were received here from you had been looked for with
much anxiety and in my opinion the inst;ructions which were
issued by you to th~e several' sherriffsxJ in the premises~ (of
~which you sent mel a copy) were taken by. the people interested
as an indication that your were doing all in your power to
promote their welfare, and those who have spoken to me have
etxpressced their gratitude to you for your action.
A committee (compos-ed of W.Hunt Harria', Alfred Atchinson
and Roland Curry) la leaving tonight for Washington to appear
in. this behalf before the Comittee on Foreign Relations and
urge the passage of a measure to be presented by Setnator
Talliaferro.

I have been informed by a close friend of the East Coast
Railroad that that company will spend no moneyr to further
the election of Mr. Harria for the Senate. I am inclined to
think, however that it wrill, or at least it will exert all
of its; influence to that end.

~QI I am~ fully appreciative of your kindly interest in my
candidacy and I am confident that I shall be elected.
I am gaining ground every dayr, although-I believe Harria
hasr gained more political capital out of this sponge matter
than I have. Still I have done all that I could and the
apongrlers believe that I am their friend and am acting in
good faith. Ae~ a matter of fact the primary comes on a date
that will find nearly all of the spongers a down the bayn.
SThis is the only reason w~hyS I fear another candidate and
possibly a second primar~y.

Peter Knight is doing all` in hiis power for me, and I:
expect to get the best of it in Lee, County through the good
work of my friends.

Of course I am going over there myself when the pro ~er
time comes.

Thanking you again for your kind favors etc. and with
my best regards to the members of your, family, I am, Sir,
Very sincerely yours,

G~ov. N.B. Broward,
Governor of Florida,
Tn71allaasscee,Pl a.
Dear Governor.
After looking at my notes on Mocnday morning
undertaking to makte a transcript I found that I could not make
anything out of th-em. approaching a verbatim speech,th-e fact is I
canl not do a speect-,but you are a very deliberate speaker,and be-
lieved if i hadi or could hanvegotten a good note that Ii could have
made a transcript,but th-e conditions w~ere so unfavorablest thne
time th~e speech was delivered th~at abso~vuuely prevented this,in
th-e first place `I hadi~ to sit beh-ind yousth~ere was a gale blowing
beh-ind,from th-e rear of th-e stand wht-ichn kept th-e leaves of my
note book in a flutter the greater portion of the time,and to
add still further to the discomfiture,J had to button up a t~hi'ck
overcoat,and was th-us prevented from taking a readible notes but
SI hated to quit th~e effort after star~ing, it-as th-roughcout I was
aihmett obliged to do.
Wh~en you left I understood you would be back '''dniesdaJ, T took
that to be that you world arrive at the Aragon hotel Tuesday night
I went up there and waited until all the trains were in to see
you to go over th-e notes and~ get your assistance in the matter,
you did niot arrive,Il went th~e next morning~ to the hrotel,nack again
th~at right and thie next morning leaving my card andi phone number
for you to call me up if you did come in,in the meantime L'E~ngle
called on me andc I told him. I could not give a copy of th~e speech:
wIithoul~t ;our first goingt over it,and leartelcd later th~at h-e h-ad to
senld a anil downl to y;ou.
HJow I regret th-is more than1 `I can say,because Mir.Hiolling~swtort.
is tore witl: me at myr su'ggstion while I write this letter,and I
write to ask~ if I may see you or wh~at it m~ay be your pleasure
,to assist you in th-e premises. If I hLad kniow wtat I now do, I s~o-uL.
have gone down1 withr you Mondayr in order to get up th~e data fully
from ;rour various pa~pers,but J th~ough:t I could make out th-e notes,
anid I couldhave put: up for you a much: better presentation th-an1 any
one else could beraujse it coiuldha~ve been arrianged under proper
r.eadis inl notes anlo the tran~script followed yourexact labguage,but
wh-ile I at trhe time expr. sed a desire to assist youIT did not know
just wh~rat to sayr,think~ing all th-e timne that there must be more
y~ou would like for I.Te- to do when I saw~ you on your return anid
w;as able to, hanldle the data in notes I already adi.
J desire now to say th'at if I could see you,Tl could get at
the tanig ed n~otes andc do theo Jackzsouville Speect, to your satisfac-
tion anid to :our friends as well as minea. I hrave simply fell dowvn
on th~e specch is all tcere is tor it,an~d want to do it for you if
I could h-ave Sou to assist me in untangling- those th~at are unde-
cipterable.
I would like to kow yI~our pleasure in thne maltter for Ir insist
tt:at if I can see y~ou orCj a S..ort while anld go over th-e notes with
you Tr canl complete :,our sp~eer and give you anr exact- cope forte
same andZ will do so. Please let me hear from you as to whateverr
lay be your pleasure.

Honorable N. B. Broward,

Governor of Florida, Tallahassee, Pla.

Bear Sir:

I beg to acknowledge receipt of your personal

favor of the 15th inst., returning comrplimentary pass from

Tallahassee to Apalachicola and return issued account of the

visit' of the congressional delegation to Apalachicola and

Carrabelle harbors.

I appreciate your position thoroughly, and regret

that we were unable to tender you tihe~courtesies which we

desired. I had hoped, however, that inasmuch as this

handling was entirely by special train, and for the entertain-

.ment of the congressional delegation, you would be in the pjosi-

tion of assisting us entertain them, rather than in being our

guest, and w~ith this view of the matter you would be in position

to use our transportation.

Veryr truly yours,





GCeneral Passenger Agent.

March 23, 1906.

Governor N. B., Broward,

Tallahassee, Fla.

Dear Sirt-

Will1 asv, please send some of" Loir drainage data to

Senator Thomas A. DavNis of H~ansau County. An attactfis being made

upon him as one of your friends and supporters on the proposition

thiat the funds now in t:-e hands of the Trustees of the Internal

Improvement Fund should be devoted to schools anud roads instead

of drainage.

I have been unable to accomplish aznything in the Bell trans-

action an;d ha~ve so notified him today. I woould suggaest that y~ou

might~ takci it up with Mlr. T. A. Jenningfs, or, have M~r. Bell do

so.

It strikes me that upon further reflection the calling of

the special session of the Legislature is inadvisable until and

unless. a favorable decision on the Wade case is made by the Su-

Dear Sir:--


We beg again to call your attention to your omission up
to the present time to remit in accordance with your pledge, for the
Literary Digest and Poe's Works. You agreed to send $4.50 for the
Digest and the books, which were to be sent at the expense of the
subscriber. As explained in our previous letters, we paid the car-
riage charges on the books and added 59-cents to the bill to cover
this item of expense. We have already sent you two notifications; but
for some reason, either through oversight or neglect, no response
has been received. We feel sure that it will be unnecessary, after
this reminder, to again call your attention to the matter.
We attach a form below for your convenience in remitting.
Sincerely,
FUNK &c WAGNALLS COMPANY.
