Transcript

HOTEL PALM BEACH, PALM BEACH, FLA., March 13, 1904.
MR. D. L. BARTON, DAYTONA, FLA.
DEAR SIR: Mrs. Gilley and I have just returned from our Ocklawaha River trip, and I suppose our experience is the same as hundreds of others. We are simply delighted with the trip.
I have been on all the principal rivers of the South and East, but this river is a marvel; there was something new nearly every moment and so much that was novel and interesting. The trip alone was worth a visit to Florida.
All the officers on the boat from captain down were very attentive and courteous, and did everything in their power to make the trip a memorable one.
We especially enjoyed our five meals on the boat. I don't see how it is possible in the limited space to serve so many and do it so well. Everything was first class, and I have been in but one hotel in Florida where they served meals that could compare with them.
I shall recommend this trip and the "Hart Line" to all my friends who anticipate visiting the South.
Sincerely yours,
A. D. GILLEY,
109 Kingston St., Boston, Mass.
