S Y 6keelanta,Fla*,April 9,1921.

Mr. Earl E.Beeuh,
Atlanti, Iowa.

My der Mr.Bee.nh:--

You oi course recall our oorrespondenoe re theselling of your father's"
tracts in Frulieres13,L S. 2'7'T. 44 So R. 3( E. ),as well as your owns
On April 1-,,andjune 23,1920,you wrote me desibingme to sell these lands ,
and,in August,lv2u,we agreed on a bs*is,in consequence of which you signed
a formal authorization,which I have ,and onwhioh 1 desire to proceed.

In my letters,1 explained that I had a group ol buyers,who were buying
lands,and thinkingseriously of taking more. I desired to be fully ready,
when they werereaSy,that nothing might hinder the sale when they should
see and be satisfied.

My correspo ndenee with therepresentative ofjhis group has been very
satisfactory. They havetaken more time than I had sup- osed would be re-
quired to decide. HOweverthey wanted to see how certain crops they
were havingraised for them here succeeded.

However,on Oct. 28,and Deu. 4,1u20,I received letters from your brother,
L.E.Bee.h,Ooldwater,Mish.,indicating that the arrangement we had made
eould not stand* ne wrote Dee. 4 .--

Regardlngthe agreement between my brother Earl Beech and yourself,
muab say that same cannot be;as,aceorting to the will o0 my late Father,
all the land in that district belonging to aim at the time of his death
was left to my Mothe- in the form of a life-estabeand cannot ie sol d'.
He also indicates the probabliity that he will come here and cultivate
theland himself.

This,o.0 course,raises a vital question. We shouldcertainlybe glad to
have settlers and cultivators come in. Atnthe same time,it creates the
very situation I suggested in myletter to you of Aug* 2,192u,when I. Inf'
sisted on having aformal,definite authorization to sell if I was to make
the attempt. Otherwise,In the midst of the proceedings,the road might
be absolutely blocked by a change of mind on the part of the owners.

I write, therefore, to ascertain whether your brother's view has prevailed,
and the attempt to sill the tra t must be discontinued; or whether he
isia error,and our agreement stands as wnen duly signed and witnessed.
An early reply to this will be very important,since the buyers may re-'
smue thenegotiations soon.

I have not taken this up with you sooner because of facts pointed -oat
in paragraph 3 above. Now, the harvesting and marketing time has al-
most passed.

yr" C.F.Little,
dear :Mr* Little:;-
The pest glasses are beelp-
ing a vexing factor here. I have been think-
ing we might handle them with the old Cram"
cylinder. I understand it is still on the bakk
opposite your old place

Areyou willing I should get it and try it?
Do you know whether it would be a big Ijob to
attach it behind an ordinary good tractor--
Frisenn,e.g*,and work it?

The best arrangement woulih be to haveitinde-
pendent of the tractor,as is a plow or harrow;
but so it could be hitohed on,like any other
implement,and detached quickly, when not heeded.
So fixed,that old discarded part would be a
good thing here,I believe. Any tips you can
give will be valued.

I hope you are not away for keeps* We need
such men as you here right along.

It begins to look as though we should get outrf
the woods before very much longer. /

Sincerely yours,


O.F.L. (2)

It is suggested that we take off the rear shaf--
of our Uni Word,with its wheels,and attach the
Crmu Cylinder behind this by a frame and a
sprocket chain*
sprocket would be put on the Uni Ford Shaft,
andanother on the Cylinder shafg ( if not there
now). 'he revolution of tTe Uni Ford wheels
would cause their shaft to revolveiand this
,by the sprocket and chain chnnection,would cause
the cylinder to spin*

The combined outfit would be dawn by the Ford-
son tractor.

The cylinder would be mounted on wheels of a
height permitting the cylinder to dig into the
A raising and lowering device would be required.
ft try-out uses this might possibly be/voided
by pulling the outfit about on a st 9r boat

Suggestions are invited.

April 19,1921.

lMr. T. E. Mill,

Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear Sir:

I have your letter of April 15. I wonder if you will not
agree with me that the mere fact that excellent forage grasses, such
as St.Lucie grass, which is not the same as Giant Bermuda by the way,
2.:aiden cane, Para grass, Rhodes grass, and others, succeed so well
under Everglade conditions, does not point to the conclusion that the
grass crop will have to be one of the great crops of the Everglades. Al-
so that it is hopeless to think of such an enormous area as being
devoted to truck crops, and at the present time there is no other crop
in sight but grass which can be utilized to grow on the enormous area
involved. Of course there are many problems yet to be solved regard-
ing grass and live stock on the Everglades, particularly in reference
to the well-being of animals on muck soils. Of course it is a little
bit unfortunate that some extremely valuable pasture grasses lik
Maiden cane, St. Lucie grass, Bermuda grass, Giant Bermuda, and others
are rather difficult to eradicate, but their value as pasture plants
can not be gainsaid.

I fear there is no" royal road"for the fighting of a weedy
grass or any other weedy plant on the Everglades or anywhere else. It
requires intelligent, continuous fighting*to eliminate an undesirable
plant Qi to hold it in check. The spraying method is valuable under
special circumstances, as for example destroying mustard mixed with
wheat, as the mustard plant is much more susceptible to a weed poison
than is the wheat; that is, a poison is able to destroy the mustard
that does not injure the wheat at all. For the use of more deadly poi-
sons, oil, etc., the use of these is limited largely to railroad rights-
of way, roadsides, etc. Their use on farm lands seriously affects the
soil and it is out of the question to use them.

Mr. T. E. Will--2 April 19, 1921.

I fear in the Everglades as elsewhere, you will have to re-
sort to farm methods of controlling weeds, which involve on the one
hand clean cultivation and on the other hand growing now and then a
smother crop in rotation. As a smother&pp velve bans is of course
one of the very best.

With best regards,

/.'p^ ~^

Dear Dr. Will:--

I returned last night from a two-weeks absence from the

office. Most of the time of my absence was spent in Cuba.

return I find your letter of the 8th inst.,written from Okeelanta, 2t

captioned, "Start the Cars." -Am article from you W S -a,-"

was printed in the Post about the first week in April.

However, I shall turn the communication in to the man who

is now on the desk.

Mr GCnkling and I contemplate the establishment at an early

date of a weekly newspaper devoted to South lorida. Probably the

mame of the p4 r will be The South Florida. Developer, which indicates

the scope. As most of' South FlArida is Everglades, the Everglades will

have a corresponding amount of the space of the paper, but it will

report operations in all of the drainage aqd read districts.

I wO.uld like to have from you a letter stating your opinion

of the field there is for such a publication and the mseUyce it may be

able to render. There are about 20,000 nen-resident land owners in

Palm Beach county, all of whom should be interested in exactly the

kind of a publication vwe have in miiC,

Yours truly,

Sr .

Ford Plant,
April ?1, 191.

Dr. Thou. g. Will,
Oheelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will -

Received your interesting letter yesterday and certainly
regret Lae fact tnat you nave been having so many set backs, also am
pleased to know that the Fordson is giving satisfaction.

Sometimes I say tnat tnere are two particular things that
I am interested in. One is one Fordson tractor and the other is the
Everglades. At tie present time I am pT sing the Fordson tractor
first but the Everglades are not far behind it.

Sometimes I have thought that I might like to start a
repair snop in Oheelanta, for you see since coming here have had a
wonderfuj.eduoation both on theory and practical end of automobile,
tractor and gas engine business. This company have certainly treated
~e fine, they not only let me spend several months in the largest
automobile and trbator plant in the world but payed my expenses and a
good salary besides. My work here is very pleasant and the kind I
enjoy so you see I am not coming to Florida for a few months, it
least, nevertheless I "a coming.

As to your proposition concerning tne locs, considering
that I migrn want a lot to build a repair__shop on could you tell me
just wnaionlot would be most suitable for my purpose.

Then I must say financially am not very strong as usual
and ntrie fat tnat we have a very heavy exonange on our money makes
tne burden heavier. However, if you would consider say $.0.00 as I
first payment and not over *$.00 per montI to finlan tne payment i
I mignt consider it. This I know will not be much of an inducementi
to you. However if I can help out tnis imuon shall.consider that
this has not been entirely in vain.

Best regaras to Mrs. Will and Lawrence, /

As ever,
