Mr. Thomas E. Will,
c/o Bryan & Greenwood,
Ft. Lauddrdale, Fla.

Dear Sir:

We thank you for your kind letter of July 1st
with reference to the Drainage suit. We attempted to
explain the matter thoroughly in our former letter, but
if you desire any further information we shall be very
glad to give it to you.

The result of this whole matter is tha*you will
finally have your'title to this land cleared of any tax
liens, whereas in its present condition the Drainage Dis-
trict might cause you considerable trouble in the absence
of this agreement we are making with you. As a matter of
fact, the Drainage District has recently adopted the policy
of declining to permit land owners to redeem their land
from delinquent tax sales after two years have expired, and
in our view of the matter the agreement with you as suggested
puts you in a better position than other land owners whose
land has been sold more than two years for drainage taxes.

In the meantime, we would like to discuss the matter
with you before many days as the advertisement is already run-
ning in the Palm Beach Post as a preliminary step to getting
the litigation started.

Yours very truly,

iy dear irs.UoOllough*--
I have your letter of the 18th, I certainly hope the retirement bill may not prove the
Si'root' the agrip ltural bill did. It had about the same crowd to fight,I imagine.
Deveral things have crowded hard here for attentions--
1--The S LU LI Pe--almost a panio,vrlth funds tied up so tight that millionaires of last
year have been a guessing' horr they would pay interest and living ospcnseseatp ut smaller
people--like the underesigned-where t .ey hid to acratoh for life.
2--The 4~8500,000 Bond scheme for P.B.County was one of the most awful monnoes the Glades
oountry ever faesd* I do not know whether you aas- my several stories( including By speech
before the Co*Cniersaa. pubde in the P BePost. Theonly diaounuuon of the question from
the Glades standpoint I sar was there. Sharp fell doon practically flat as a defender of
the'Glades oausee True,he said a few weak words,but did nothing at all in oopatleon rwith
what the case demanded. And he never remotely hinted at my campaign. He was dead against
the Glades country 4 years ago when Harris almost drove uo wild,and I led theb fight,and
hanc-led it almost alonefor many weeks,before ro obtained the heln that killed the rotten
seho-me But this last was so much r.orse thin that that that look now like, a beaofioet

3--GT Upper Glades notion in due for another wattinga,hile the low Gladi lhere ore in
Eod condition. 11ll due to the drawing back of Upper Glades uatorJ in the tnteroet of the
lower Glades orowdwho have more influence--that seem to beo the ospla~aton
0.-I have seen -1 to have an opnortunity here recently to do sone vital Glates work in a
p8blioity way( nse Cell.soparate cover.) All in blu isa mine. But the paper could not
raiso th. nees:;ary funds,,and fight the Lower fi[ahd[do'ocitltito it ha ntc nr.rondcd B for
60 to 90 dayGct, fin 'noe'lowing 0 me almost all I eiarnod. '
The F.0. eifort is not making any visible trouble now. I prepared a letter tnat offered them
abo6t everything I have in the world,but still ofllra pon t.hen to Jo cannthlQf thouselves;
no they seem to be thinking it over.
The lu-t time I was in U.P.Beaoh tI called at Judge avyj ces offioo( he had said to nS tie. time
before that ho would li::o to scone)| but ho was occupied Lhis time. I wan- to sou him at the
first opportunity,and see how it looks to him.
/It seems to me our D.C. mambCrCof tile Protoctive asn. could agroo that we went the Gift
(and aved for the reme identical reason we always did and always tat3ted;vizs for the
help it can "'nder to avi. sethrlemont and developeantaiid ospc~afl.y t'he ';." D. of that

there is a oause worth tremondoui efforts
Of ourroGe can't boss the wholo job. But no never olaimed wre oould '. tll,in 21M3-14,
we had it so arranged that our Exz*am.of the Ok.Assa., were to control the Ok.Gorp* Board,
aend that uould have givan us exactly the oprorftunity to pz'su tile above point upon t.;e
' 4,8603aB we planned to do.
IfenowGe drop that whole matter of the B Objooet ouiht ,..ld thin Pnin-ur shilj fAizr5 u-ar-
selves with a big campaign ahead,to get the fund need ns we .laya agr d it ought to
be used.
And if I an the only one to make the point,t'io kidoors will be certain to impugn my motives,
and olain I am. simply trying to i.aEgrov may r Oierty for my own private endsa* hat kind of
charge "ha been airung on 'a so aany times as to almost laku me oynioal,and drive me to
leaving the old orowd to fight their own battles hereafter,while fight n1r oawn
As I said,I know perfectly that if weo do go ahead and make the fightthat should be mado,I
(shall haveto do the big end of the workret the matter all together,index it,brief itdin it

should want to make would be 1iHY E ARE IgTEESIZED and I have worlds of data to make 1ll
that olear a

Dear Mr. Will,


I as;: thankful that God has made me fanciful. When

things seem to oppress and ambitions chafe, I am thankful that

I may just sit real still and paint the Lmost beautiful pictures.

Sometimes a flock of doves will come anu. surround me and leave

such a feeling of love ad contentment anu peace add joy, and

bounty. Again the spirit of truth will seem; to place me in

the midst of a luxuriant hay field add I love to take one of

the seeds aid follow it through its complete cycle; from the

seed, the preparation of the soil in which to plant, the faith

and the trust which goes with the plantin- and covering, (losing

to mortal sight) and the nurturing, then the fir-t appearance

of life bursting through the soil and then patiently, carefully

through each step in growth to the abundant harvest, rich and

full. I love to dare to be fanciful with God and then realize

that the same power is working out ana bringing to the harvest

all that imy soul has trusted with Him.
I expect to be free for a conference tomorrow morning,

about 10:00 A. iI.

Yours truly,
^TEL*t/ ^

My Dear Ir. 'Tells:-

An item in a Florida paper telling of the building of
a mammoth power plant in the 3verglades, West from Dania, has refreshed
my memory of the pleasant and interesting people I met in Florida, yourself
being in the foreground.

I trust that during the boom last year, you were able to sell
your Okeechobee lands,for cash and at a good round profit.

If you should be coming North this summer or fall, and be in
the vicinity of Cincinnati, do not fail to look me up.

Mrs. Poland joins me in kind regards.

Believe me,

July 29th, 1926.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
P. 0. Box 275,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Dr. Will:-

Regret to have missed you yesterday afternoon.

I waited until six o'clock, and having a rather pressing engagement,

I could not wait longer. I found your note on return. However, this

afternoon, I had the good fortune to run into my good friend Mr.

Maxwell Baxter, of your city, who was going back this afternoon, and

I thought it safer and less trouble to send the papers to you by him than

to risk the mails or the buss drivers. He kindly consented to take them,

and you may get them by calling at his office for them.

I prepared the pleas, which you will please sign before filing.

Having been so long out of the practice, I have forgotten whether or not

these pleas should be sworn to by you. You may ask Baxter, or the Clerk

of the Court, either of which can and will tell you. I did not have

access to the necessary law books or a good lawyer friend who could put

me right on that question. I know that the pleas are in proper form,

and suitable to the occasion.

Yours very truly,

AW. /

Box 2798
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Jul7 31, 1926.

Mr. Thos. E. Vill,
229 Bryan Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear :r. Will:

I would like to check up on the progress made on your

case thus far and speed it if possible, and with that aim in view,

an appointment in the near future would seem advisable. I am

givii?: it the regular general treatment from which you must be

seeing some good results as all others are doing, including myself.

I have such beautiful cases to-work'on and do enjoy it

so much. It does not seem possible for me to spend regular time

at the Broward, as I have had to go to Miami several morninrs and

worked all night one night on a case; but it was worth it. Had

immediate response.

I may be able to do .ui.ethinr personally on the

Newspaper Business soon. What has turned out for you on it?

All progress begins in the consciousness.

Faithfully, in TRUi,

Norfolk, Va.
Aug. 4th, 1926.

Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale,

Dear Mr. Will:-

As per your latest letter, the twentieth of July has come

and gone, and I have been hoping to hear from you during

the past few days as to how matters stand since that date

Mrs. Hayes and myself are possessing ourselves in patience

to the best of our ability, but as Action, is our middle

name I would appreciate some information as to what the

court house employees have done to get matters in line* As

this is the quiet season in all Florida, it would seem an

opportune time to adjust matters of long standing.

Kindly let me hear from you again.

Cordially yours,

2817 Villa Circle,
Norfolk, Virginia.


August 4, 1926.

Dear Mr. Will:

Times come when we are called upon to buffet the waves

just to test the strength or rather to strengthen.

For a week I have had it in-mind to see if you could

not participate in the sale of these lots in Hollywoul Hi.i.s

out it seems could not see you to put the proposition up to you.

If I do not have to go away any morning this week, I will be at

the Brosard from 9:3, to 10:30 A. M.

Lr. Price has tiiese lots and says if you can get $7,500

for the nine of them in the rext lew days, 0. K.

Yours truly,

v/mil; FPolley.
