T"pyr ':nc:le:s--

I fi-:.urn you that I appreciate exceedingly your and

Aunt Vira's thoun'htflQlness, Fand r am glad fo know the hard work I

ar doting for the public good is being fomud out by those who

rn newspaers outsi.ie 'of Florida., rs very little favorable com-
iment is nade in the Flor.da news.paoirs.

I have not seen tho newspaper article referred to by

,you, noncernign what in 'ensaoln. If the people unrdrstood

*- as saying that after t .father returned from the War, cauTsed

hij, to drink, it was a mistake, as I said that after the Civil ar

.rid en ded., father and 911 the members of his family had traken

fromr than by Confiscatory Act all of their property, and that they

:.ro compelled to start anetw; that he was very much discouraged,

ani that as one of the results of his discouragement, he drank to

excess, and that riv mother, through discouragement and being m&ade

unhappy by r r father's excessive use of liquor, took her own life,

and that I consider intoxicating drink to be the greatest course of

the human race. etc.

Thanking yon exceedingly fLor your thoughtfnlnefas in

Personal, 'Octber Ith. 1807.
and Private.


My dear Governor: /

I was on th point of writing to you after my arrival here
when I read in the newspa ers that you were in Pensacola en route Westward,
and subsequently I read o your presence with the score of Governors at the
meeting with the President at Cairo, Ill. Assumingthereforethat you are
soon to be back in Tallahassee I am now writing this letter to tell ypu my
address here. As I informedlyou in my last letter from Fortress Monroe, af-
ter I had stayed through the so-called "Florida Day" at the Jamestd6wn Expob
sition and looked out -as best I could under the circumstances-for Florida
interests, representing the State on that occasion by a modest seat on the
platform,I came on here to look after some matters of importance to myself,
this ubder the permission and authority you were good enough to vest me with
before I started North. Of course I shall go back to the Exposition again as
I bought my return ticket,,but it was very expensive there and I see no im-
mediate demand for any representative from Florida there now.

After all that Colonel T.J.L.Brown,did and aaid(from a dls-
tance.)he did not put in appearance at all on "florida Day",and at the eleov
eleventh hour(after Brown had been published in accordance with his voldn-
tary announcement as Florida's arator that day,and failed to appear)-, I ac-
cepted an invitation to join President Tucker and the official party on the
stage,to represent Florida. Colonel Brown was listed for a speech (in acw
cordahce with his letter offering t& speak on that occasion in your absence
as I had previously told you in letter on the subject of the Florida day,)
but when his name was reached on the program ,he being absent, the Florida
feature was simply passed over in silence. It was a matter of mortification
and regret to me that Colonel Brown had meddled with the event at all since
he seemed not to-'have had Florida interests at heart on the one day in the
whole life of the Jamestown Exposition when the Chief Commissioner of the
State of Florida might even without pay and at his own personal expense,put
in an appearance I have no comment to make further than this at this time
but should you desire a more complete statement on this subject at a -ater
day I shall be very glad to submit it to you. It makes me mad to see men
whom you have helped to make,or at least whose alleged importance you have
have in a great measure so materially added to by your favors, go strutting
around criticizing you while at the same time looking after their own per-
sonal interests. When the political pot begins to get hot and boil in Flor-
ida,dear Governor, I want to tell you a thing or two which may help you if
it does not help others.

I have held back my report on the visit of the Company from
Apalachicola because it is not to reflect credit on the military judgment
of the Lieutenant who came up in command of it. He went into the Exposition
grounds and was on the point of leaving it with his company,without having
reported in person at Exposition headquarters,and no Exposition official
wohld have known of the presence df the Company at the Exposition, except
for my insistence at Exposition headquarters that a search be made on the
fifth day after the date of the Company's expected arrival,to determine
whether that company had really come into the Exposition grounds,or not.It








was only then the Exposition authorities,who had for five days instated to
me that the Company had not arrived and nothing had been heard from it,
learned of the company's presence,a fact which I had myself only acciden-
tally learned through the Adjutant-Genetal of S.C. who had himself only
casually heard of it from a S.C. naval reserve officer who,it seemed,had
met some of the Florida men. Of course this extraordinary condition of
things goes to show the -lametablo lack of proper organization and manage-
ment on the part of the Exposition people* Just think of it. A company of
State troops actually went into Camp in the Exposition grounds and not one
single military or civic official of the Exposition .knew anything at all
about it. I thought I ought to have made an official report of the matter
to General Grant,but it really was not my duty to do that and I decided
not to do it because I was afraid it might get the regular Army officer in
tro4ble--I mean the officer in immediate charge of such matters,who had itt
his sergeant take charge of the militia camp without reporting the arrival
of troops,it seems, to any one in authority over him. It is such ad manage-
ment,or no management at all in some ways,that must account for the utter
failure of the military feo*ute camp feature of the Exposition--a matter con-
cerning which I shall make an official report At present Imean this only
as a personal letter of private report to you og passing events.
As soon as I know positively where you are I want to send you some in-
teresting data on the drainage matter. I received a copy of that circular
which was sent to all the Governors,and -)I see that you have the appotntmett
of as many membaew delegates to the coming convention to.be held JBaltimore
next month,as there are members and senators in Congress from Florida,and in
addition two extra as delegates at large. May be I shall ask Eou to consider
the advisability 'of naming me as one of the latter delegates as I am begin
ning to think I can lend you a hand at least in making your plans understood,
and have already put myself in interesting contact with some of the officials
connected with the Reclamation Service,and they all seem ambitious to help in
drainage as well as irrigation of land in need of help. It would be a splen-
did occasion for you to announce to all the world and especially to the U.S.
your scheme of drainage in Florida. The convention has secured rates of one
and one-third for round tickets,and I know of no mobe important official
business in Florida than the drainage buskness,and nothing as vital to the
welfare of the State, and therefore it can well be provided for out of the
contingent fund. I hope that you will consider well the advisability of
coming up to Baltimore to the Convention,and remember that I am at your
service in this as in all things else,so please command me.

/ To make sure that this letter reaches you I ask, dear Governor,that
as soon as you receive it you will kindly acknowledge its receipt,and then
I will send you some of the data I spoke of intending to get for you.here.

I send my best regards to all, and Mrs. Dapray joins me in the wish
that this letter will find Mrs. Broward and the children, Miss Dorcas, Miss
Douglas and the Captain all well,and of course yourself too.
Sincerely your friend

Honorable N. B. Broward,
Governor of Florida, .

Dear Sir:

I have you favor of the 8th, enclosing copy of

a letter to Governor Ansell. The land is something over

twenty thousand acres, in township 32 south, range 38 east,

being nearly the whole township; also something over

eleven thousand acres in township 31, range 38 east, being

almost a solid body containing a little over thirty-two

thousand acres, all being in St. Lucie County.

If I have any inquiry for this property I will

be careful about pricing it, but I would like to have the names

of any parties with whom you are dealing.

I hope you can make the sale on the tenrn as

mentioned.

Yours very truly,

My Dear Governor:-

I wired you on Hlonday the 14th that Gov. Deneen had

consented to come to St. Louis and address our Commercial Club on

either the 19th or 26th, whichever date might be most convenient for

you, and had hoped either to hear from you by wire at b-e or by

mail today, but have not done so up to this writing. As the time

between now and the 19th is too short to perfect satisfactorily

arrangements for the dinner, we have set Saturday evening, October

25-th as the date therefore, and in view of your promise to me that you

would cone if you possibly could, and the fact that you have not

notified us to the contrary, we are hoping you will be with us without

fail on the last mentioned date. Your presence will be considered-an

honor to the Club and will be appreciated, and I have no hesitancy

of insuring you of a warm and sincere welcome.

with assurances of personal esteem, believe me,

Yours very respectfully,




Gov. Napoleon B. zrovard,

My Dear Governor:
In, looking over some memoranda in
reference to the deep waterway movement, I find a copy
of the pamphlet, "The Present Aspect of the Mississippi
River Problem" by Judge Robert S. Taylor the copy
which youhanded to me on the Steamer Alton. I have
been so 1bsy since my return from Memphis with my cor-
respondence and with matters connected with the General
Assembly, which is in session, that I have not been able
to look into my personal affairs until yesterday. I
am greatly mortified to find that the pamphlet was not
returned to you promptly. I read it yesterday with
a great deal of interest and enclose it with this let.ter.

I have also caused to be sent to you a copy of my
message to the General Assembly, the report of the In-
ternal Improvement Commission of Illinois and my biennial
message. The/report of the Internal Improvement Com-
mission is a masterful one, in so far as it relates to
the deepwater way question as it affects Illinois. I
think you will be interested in it.

I am looking forward with a great deal of pleasure
to meeting you on Saturday night at St.Louiis.

Yours very truly,



Hon. Napoleon B. Broward,

Governor of Florida,

Tallahassee, Florida.

Dear Sir:

I have only time to write yok! a short letter, but hnrpe

soon to IaLve the pleasure of personally discuuir.c several mat ers

with you. V'Tat I want to say chiefly, however, is this, that I

don't believe, so far as I can ascertain, that Judge Stewart of

,,aratee County has behaved othemn':ie thar; in a mariner in whici-. he

had a perfect right tc behave, and entirely becoming the Judge on

the Bench. Of course, I do not undertake to e..-plin, nor do I

understand why he should not have granted a c:,.tinuanc" of Zir.

L'3;ngle': case, but that is a matter entirely. in tbhe-lircussion

of the JuLdge. Judginr from his conduct frzm a legal star.lt oint,

as w:el ars from my ob-crrvatior of the :w.atter, w..nt to i.y that I

think his conduct that within what any judge with p'ropriety miriht

have done, andl tha-, my talk with him leads me to believe that he

is a gcod _an, and in every ser.ne worthy' of the .-oit!io he 'iolcs.

The only thing th-7 rc-.air.s ir: y mirnd adverse to him is his

se.nairg unwilling~recs to grar.t thct contir.uar.co.

I have writ enr you t.l i, cautioiary letter, not knc:ir.~

what nmir.ht be repre;.er.ted to you as your dutyi in reference tc

takingr ar;y action concernir:,. the said Judje.

You have doubtless beer. infor..id of everyt- inr. tha- tool;

any of those detail..

Gov. X. B. Broward,

My Dear Sir:-

I have just returned to my office after an absence of

some weeks and find that, through an oversight, I did not forward

to you, the second extra policy which was ordered out with your orig-

inal application. I am therefore enclosing you policy No. 1533749

premium $148.10. This is identioaliy the same policy as the two you

have already accepted and settled for.

Of course, my dear Governor, you are not in any way bound

to take this policy, but it would afford me a great deal of pleasure

to deliver it to you. I would like very much indeed to be able to

state that the Governor of Florida is carrying $25,000 with the

Equitable, most of which is on the new New York State Standard form

of contract which was gotten up by the great reformer of the day,

Gov. Hughee in the interest of the people and the policyholders and

backed by the great State Of New York and the Equitable's millions.
I enclose you a blank note which I shall be glad to aooept

for the premium in full which you may make payable at suoh time as

would suit you, without interest. I shall be glad to hear from you.
Yours truly,


Enlosure. general ent.

I believe my secretary wrote to you some weeks
since, as we heard through mutual acquaintances that you
have young daughters and that you are interested in higher
culture and would consider your daughters having the ad-
vantages of a winter's residence in New York City. I write
to inform you of our change of address. I take two or three
young ladies in my own family. I give them unusual and de-
lightful opportunities. Tf your daughters are musical, I
should be especially interested in having them with me. I
can refer you to leading families throughout the United
States where members have studied singing with me. Poss-
ibly other young girls may occur to you who may be inter-
ested either in our Chaperone Home or wo are likely to
come to New York City for higher cultivation of their
voices.
I am arranging a special trip to Europe next sum-
mer. It will be a small party. We will travel in a leis-
urely way, remaining in the principle cities. Young ladies
will combine travel and sight seeing with the study of
singing, languages and literature of the different coun-
tries. They will have many very delightful social op-
portunities, as I have lived many years abroad and have
many valuable friends there us-also in New York City.
I enclose two programs which I have arranged
recently. This will give you an idea of the opportunities
my vocal students have for introductions to New York aut-
lences underthe most exclusive a auspices,
Thanking you for any kind suggestions as to
possible students,

Believe me,
