My deax Mr. RHan;on;

In making a copy of somr bill we introduced in the

last Lecgilatur.,,,fcr the Park, I fcz.ud the one in retard to

the aIndian Rservttipf,+ t-he f 98,1Q000a.orev of land whiot was put

intc the hands of the Fotar& of RSt t Institutionp and which we

triea to get the lat. Le i&latnure to grant direct to rha Govern-

ment. This bill -hat I enn.oo Was passed by the HouF-, you will

remember, and defceated- in the senate by Senator Malone of Key Wesa,

your Senator, ntwithattindj.i the~ fact that 'a filed a great long

petition with Mr. Peory, and in both houses in fact, to get same

through. I am sesdiRn Mrs. Kellum., Legialative Ohairran, two orig-

inala to bo introduced in the House and.two in the Senate, with

working copies for the iatroduceras. and copy for Mrs. Kellum herself.

Of course this bill will not be taken up, although apprOvsd.by tke

Federazton already, unless you push matters; in fact, I supposedf it

would be decided at th~ ntxt Board meeting. If some previous !work

were done, through-the Kay Weat Woman's Club, to bring pressure an


Mrs. 'Hanaon, 3*-

Senator Malone to get him to support the bill instead of opposi a

It, it: would go through without any trouble., You will know beat

how to handle this, and it is altogether possible that Iros. Stran-

ahan oan help you, and if I an, .be asauesd I will. Just let ma

know what you want me to do.

I have not recovered from the surprise, at the growth of

Dear Madam:

Your letter of December 24th to Mrs. Austin was duly

received, but as she was quite sick at the time and has since

been removed to the hospital in St.Augustine, reply has been

bnduly delayed.

As her health will probably not permit her attempting this

or any other work for some time to come it would probably be

best for you to select some other lady to carry on your work

at this place.

I will suggest that you communicate with Mrs. D. R. :roNeill,

and if you can secure her services you will have one of our very

best workers.

Yours very truly,

proper person for the chairmanship, and from what
she tell me I feel very sure that you can handle
it with great credit to yourself and to your

The amount allowed would be for gasoline, or for
any other expense that you might incur. In other
words, if you have friends who are interested in
the Oampaign who have aautomobilee, and I feel .ure
you can find suoh, you would.be permitted to furnish .
gasoline for the tripe, provided, 'of course, tzat
you days secure receipts for same, that you may be
properly reimbursed. The funds could also be used
for railroad fares

I feel perfectly sure that you will not have
any trouble in handling the Campaign because you will
have both Mrs. Whitman' and Mrs. Fuller's co-opera-
tioh and advice and, of course, Mrs. Fuller is suoh
a splendid talker there is no doubt but that phe
could make some very telling appeals to the women
through your county, or even in joint meetings with
the men,. The men, of course, will oo-operate
with you in every way and when I find out who has been
appointed I shall advise you at once. Mrs. Whitman

Urs. Alton B, Whitman,

1y dear Mrs. lhitmn:

Thatnk you very ach for accepting the appoint-
ment as Distriot Chairman for the PIo9ida E~ducational
Temaperace :Carapaign, which will, of course, place ybu
on the State EreOoutive Comlnittee. You would not, any-
way, have anything to do w th the ebllertion of funds
in the campaign, Ono of the greatest features of the
campaign is. the educational feature for law-enforce-
w ant. The making of talks to the clubs, assisting
the work and the suggesting of name tor county chair-
men would be all thl' I Rhould ask you to do. I
would, of course, sEsk you to give all possible assis-
tance to your local county mairman and in helping me
to secure one. At Mrs. iFullcr's maggestion I
havo ask'kd brs. Pedrick to aerve as chairman for Orange
County and it would be a great help to me if you wi1ll
call her up and insist that zhsl accept. She will be
allowed $25,Q00 .or axpernoi far the county. The can-
paign will only last two i owoksa snd ill be later in the
spring when people havo more time to ,4ive to it. I hard-
ly feel that we could consider prohibition a related
3subjet to our wor" a3 ia t as headed our Memorial to
the State Legislature over since X have known tho Pfederation,
pretty near, until thea tate Frohibition Constitution-
al Aradmeint as v adopted. Consequently, I feel that
one of ti.e main activities of the Federation was the
securing of prohibition, which, you will admit, is one
of our greatest problems. The Federation~ as an or-
ganistion ha has ever been used t.o collect fundi for other
organisation purposes. It is treo tbat theitoien of the
Federation have served in many capacities on "thbdr co;-i-

enclosing you a formal appointment. Mrs. Wright tells
m5 yu would be willing to speak in other counties for
us, when you have finished organizing your own, and it
is altogether poaoible we will take tdvantage of this
offer. Lee and Re8oto Counties need a 6ood deal of
work to arouse the women to their responsibility in
public affair, and I am aure you can he.p greatly in
this work. I should use the schools for this Enforce-
ment Oampaign, and also the Hone Demonstration A&ents.
Your County AL"'t is I'ias Connie DeVane, P.O0 address
Arcadia. Possibly you already kxow her. MiaS Part-
ridte, who is the head of thit .vork in the state, is

on Mii DeVane. It miht furnish you a good op:orunity
to visit the d ffersnt aommunitiers in your countyy and
make your local appointments.
PleaAe do not hesitate to oall on thia

Temperance Campaign for Broward Co. .rs. Stranahan has
given me your name, pnd I feel sure ohe will be wil2ing
to assist you in every vay poiaible in this work. It is
one of the special calls of the GOvernment and I know that
you will not have any difficulty in finding town and
community chairmen throughout your county.

The money you are allowed may be used
for gasoline, talsling expenses and otnea expenses in
connection with this campaign.

Trusting you will be able to do this work,
I am,

Mrs. Frank Stranahan,
Ft Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mrs. Stranahan:
I am surely disappointed you will not serve
as Chairman for your county and help me out. The W.C.T.U.
have taken a very odd attitude in this campaign, and
because it is conduobed by the Anti Saloon League, they are
claiming it will hurt their work to come in with us, saying
they need all the .money they can raise for their ;own urganiza-
tion and they are doing the same work, which of ocurce is
true, but it seems now when the Government has made the
request for assiitanoe in Law Enfor'oement, it would hurt
their organization to stay out of the movement. But they
probably know their own business beat and we will not say
anything about their lack of co-operation. Fe are simply
going to make our part of the work a go. Therefore, I am
really not seeking the heads of the W C T U.
I will write to Mrs. Oaks, as you suggest, and
I am going to ask you to have Mrs. Henry, the president of
your club, request her to serve as well as other promin~pt
women of the town and county, and you talk the matter over
with her and get her consent to accept. You know the fact
that our home people appreciate us often assists us to do
work which we otherwise would not have the courage to under-
I see that Mrs. Munroe had Minnie Moore Wilson ..
at her Audubon Society the other day to make a talk. It 'seems, .'
q eer that she would give prominence to a woman who has knook'd
the Federation as hard as she has, but lots of queer things as
happening these days.
Mr. Jennings is impvving gradually, and we hope
to be able to move him to Palm Beach Thursday of this week
where we think the even temperature will be beneficial.
Warmest regards to Mr. Stranahan and love for
your dear self.

W Please help me to get a chairman for your county.

I am enclosing a formal appointment of you
sa Co. Chairman of the Woman's Division, Fla. Educational

by aoceptin; this appointment.

I wnote to rFss. "'.cClndono or suggestions of her
countica, but hayv hati no reply. She 1is iotrict chairman
and on th, Executive Committc e, having aoo'pte1d the place
by wire.

I believe it will not be h-rd for you to Jo this work
and I kno.A you ..re ar vitally interested in it. You know
the county ao thoroughly it will not bO hard f r you to
name tne to.'n Aifd community onirmen, n3i youi will have a
lib-ral allowance to use as you see fit an.l neal same. You
have frlernl3 Aitn autos, :.nd you can use this money for
gasoline, traveling expenses etc. but pli:..ee keep receipts
and sen.5 them with your bill for reimbu-rj-remnt t the end
of the campaign. If you find it iinpo8sible to accept this
-ork, will you not find me a good chairman and gt her
acceptance before you send me her name, turning over to her
the formal appointment, so she may go right to work making
her oth:r appointments, and keep me posted as to her
accomplishments. I should very much prefer your taking it,
as I feel sure the work would be a g[o.

Mr. Jennings is a little better and we hope to
be able to take him to Palm Beach Thursday morning, aooompanied
by the doctor, nurse and Bryan, who will help us get settled.
We hope the-.milder climate will help him ti improve, altho'
necessarily his improvement will be alow. It is altogether
possible as soon as he is able to leave Palm Beach, we will
go to Miami for a few days before coming home, but he is in
such a critical condition, that I cannot just now look that
far ahead. I.am going to leave the appointment of a chairman
for your county entirely in your hands, and wish you would
conslut with Mrs. MoLendon and between the two of you
