General Note

  • "The evening bells of Stetson 'U', That greet the stars and falling dew, What sweeter chimes you'll find that these To float upon a South breeze?"
  • "Beneath a sky of azure hue, Where sunshine greets the whole year through, With fruit and flowers on every hand, All these you'll find in Fair De Land."
  • "Oh fair city of De Land, In this lovely spot I take my stand, Here every charm of nature lies, A symbol of God's Paradise."
  • Note poem reads, "Why will folks their winters spend Where ice and snow never end, While in De Land the warm sun shines, And zephyrs whisper in the pines?"
  • Note number at bottom: 31. Number on back, top right: 5967.
  • "Her spires of many churches tell That God's children love Him well, Schools, homes, kind friends and love abound To greet the stranger on his round."
  • Accompanying note: "De Land is 110 miles south of Jacksonville, 19 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean and 3 1/2 miles east of the historic St. Johns River, in a high, rolling and fertile section of stately pine forests, interspersed with orange groves. Being located in the peninsular part of Florida, it has a climate tempered by the trade winds and the Gulf Stream, making it ideal the year round."
  • "So meet me here in Fair De Land, And then you, too, will take your stand, And say here is Earth's Paradise - That here her choicest treasure lies."
