Flagler Enterprises Letters, 1893

2.00 items
The two manuscript letters, dated 1893, are by George F. Miles, St. Augustine, Florida to Landford Fleming, Esq., C.M.G., Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and refer to matters pertaining to Flagler enterprises. Mr. Miles at that time was general manager and director of the Florida Coast Line Canal and Transportation Company with headquarters at St. Augustine, and Mr. Fleming was a stockholder in the "Boston and Florida Land Company." In his letter of March 21, 1893, Mr. Miles expressed concern about the health of Mr. Fleming, and suggested that the delightful climate in Florida could be beneficial to him. About business matters, he wrote: "The country along our waterway is making rapid progress just now. The Canal works are going on, and a railway is being pushed as vigorously as possible through our land grant. In addition to this, Mr. Flagler is just about commencing the construction of a hotel to hold 500 people at Lake Worth and which will be open next winter. And the pine-apple industry on the West Shore of the Indian River is making quite a boom in the price of land. Mr. Flagler bought two places on Lake Worth last week, amounting in all to about 50 acres, for which he paid $103.00. I was with him when he closed the transaction and therefore know the particulars. This place is on the levi of our waterway about 260 miles South of St. Augustine... we effected the reorganization of our company on the 14th inst.; Mr. Flagler was elected president and I was appointed general manager and placed on the board of directors..." On May 1, 1893, Mr. Miles informed Mr. Fleming that he had spent "The last couple of weeks at the Capital of the State arranging for some additional Legislation in connection with our Canal Company... I succeeded in getting our bill through the Senate by a unanimous vote, but it will take a few days before it will be seriously considered in the lower house." He then stated that he had returned to St. Augustine to see about, "starting up our first new dredge which is just about completed, and have to send down the coast for about 150 men... We intend to operate our dredges night and day and hope to have Biscayne Bay connected with the Southern terminals of the new railway - now under construction - by the early part of next season." In closing his letter, he expressed the hope that Mr. Fleming had quite recovered from his illness and urged him to "pay us a visit here." Again, he praised the Florida climate.
