Dear Mr. and Mrs. (Deleted for privacy reasons)

We have been unsuccessfully negotiating with you for the purchase of the above property within the Everglades National Park Expansion. Our offer is in accordance with an impartial appraisal made by an appraiser well qualified to appraise this type of property. The offer is representative of fair market value for your interest.

If the offer is satisfactory, please sign the original offer form which was provided you.

Our schedule does not permit us to defer or delay negotiations indefinitely. Therefore, we are requesting an early response relative to consummating this acquisition. In the event we have no response from you within fifteen (15) days of your receipt of this letter, we will assume you have.rejected our offer. It will then be necessary to initiate acquisition by eminent domain procedures and have a Federal Court determine the compensation to which you are entitled.

We must bring this matter to a conclusion promptly, and are acting in accordance with approval governmental procedures for such occasions. We urge that you give serious consideration to our offer.

The above information is provided for your benefit and should not be construed as a threat. Regardless of your decision, we respect your position and right to disagree.

A self-addressed envelope is enclosed for your convenience in making a reply.

Sincerely,

Dolores A. Denning
