Abstract

[from Fort Myers] "Your favor of 18 inst received and hasten to reply. The collector accounts for the frequency of taxes that the books last year were not made out as soon as they should be which throws the two collections close. I suppose it will now be a year before you are called on again for town or city taxes as they clal them but in the mean time. I don't know how soon there will be the county and state they were paid last March and will probably not be due again till that time. ### I have paid them and you needn't trouble about sending any more money down. If I want any I will let you know as I would sooner you would keep it. ### Weather hot and oppressive very little rain for this season. I am planting sweet potatoes and making beds ready for a garden when the time comes if the ants will let me. I have made lots of fertilizer and want to get a good strawberry bed in bearing by the time you comde down if possible. ### I have laid a pipe into the middle of two beds and want one for strawberries and one for small vegetables." Respectfully yours, W.E. Hibble
