Editor's Notes

Growth is moving very quickly on TAE's settlement; The clearing out and adding on (planting) of TAE's 13 acres is under the supervision of Bassler (a gardener/landscaper from Phili.); TAE and Gilliland have matching houses. They face the Caloosahatchee; there is a THOROUGH description of the houses and the landscaping surrounding them. Mentions particularly the fireplaces TAE desires to have in both houses and the electrical wires bein gset up so the house may have lights. The largest amount of money is going towards the lab (and it equipment), which still has not been completed and will probably take several more weeks.
