Conant, Lake Country, Florida,
September 19, 1887

At a meeting of the citizens of the Town of Conant, it
was thought that the time had arrived when some combined
action should be taken for the permanent improvement
of the leading thoroughfares of the town, and a
committee was appointed to organize and carry out the
work. In order to do this, it is necessary to appeal to all
owners of property for a subscription in proportion to
the amount of land held by them. As every individual
piece of property will be increased in value by the improvements,
to an extent far beyond the amount of the contribution
asked, it is hoped that this appeal will be cheerfully
responded to. Thus far the committee has received
the warmest encouragement, several of the residents
having contributed more than treble the amount of their
assessment.
