Dear Sir:

George was in the o fice Saturday ar1 asked
me to show you a checked map showing whet lands had been
sold. I am enclosing the ;r. e. herewith.

I have been expecti.:r-' to see you down i. : -"i
way all winter. Things are moving alongF in good sha.'- and
George has been persistently at us to extend the Option
on Section 16 for him until we have extended it now for
the last time we are going to do so. No, 16 is one of
the best sections on the -place. It is very well located
and for a great deal of land no better than this, we are
getting anywhere from "0.0O.O to 50.00 an acre. T'..
only reason we have been willing to exten( thi, option
was that we had hoped to get some good practical men
working on it either as a good farm proposition, or a
stock farm.

Lands have increased in value in this State
anywhere from 5C," to 100% in the last twelve months. A
year ago I knew of a large tract of land conr-.ising
nearly 100,000 acres which I could have bought reason-
ably. I had an offer some time ago for this property
and made a thousand mile trip to see the owners with
the view of selling it, and they wanted more than
double what they were willing to take for it a year
ago. This shows you the :,way land values are increas-
ing in this State and I believe that any kind of good
land in Tlorida within the next few --""s is going to
be worth,even in the raw state, anywhere from .100.00
an acre up.

Hoping that v.:- will have th pleasure of seeing
you down this way some time in the near future, and wi'h

kindest regards, I am
Sold in Tracts of
Twenty Acres
or More. /
