A Letter from Florida

March 6, 1922

We selected Port Orange for a lengthy stay for the simple reason that it is nicely located on the Halifax river where one can get fish and plenty of fresh oysters. The Halifax river is a noted oyster bed when the tide is out one can wade the river and gather all the oysters they wish. There are three oyster houses located on the river nearby where one can buy them at 40 cents a quart. The little town of Smyrna, five miles south of us, seeking something out of the ordinary in the way of advertising and boosting their town, the members of the New Smyrna brand of trade at the beginning of the year 1921 hit upon the novel scheme of building a strictly modern bungalow and furnishing it completely even to dishes and silverware and presenting it to the writer of the best essay on the subject “of why I should own my home in New Smyrna, Florida.” Bungalow beautiful was presented to Miss Emalin a--- of Decatur, Ind. being the winner of the contest. The bungalow is valued at $7,000.00. After the ceremonies they had 65 bushels of oysters to roast in the shell and plenty of oranges for the crowd of hungry people, everything free. Last week we attended the county fair at Orlander. They had a fine display of fruit and vegetables. The weather for the past week was 80 to 86 warm and no cold water to drink. I've wished a good many times for a cold drink of N. D. water. Mrs. R. H. Vosburg.
