[D8843AAC], Letter from William E Hibble to Ezra Torrance Gilliland, May 3rd, 1888

Editor's Notes

[from Fort Myers] ]"Your favor of 28 ult. Received with cheque of $25.00 twenty-five dollars, for Forquer + Roar. I saw them soon after receiving it and paid them. ### I am breaking up that rough strip of ground on the south end of grounds, and have got Cassava enough to plant one patch went in the country for it to day and got it for going after it the other two if I succeed in getting in shape, will put one in sweet potatoes, and the other in cow peas if I can get nothing better I have been getting up more sea grass, it takes a lot of it to make a small quantity after it was decomposed but I think it will be like Homeopathic medicine effective in small doses. ### I have not commenced the fence yet. I keep promising myself after I get through this job I will commence the fence but there is always something crowding behind that causes me to postpone it till a more convenient season but I must try and begin it soon as as to get it done if possible before the wet season. I have got a lot of air plants and put on the cabbage palmetto stumps which makes them quite ornamental." Yours respectfully, W.E. Hibble
