W. Wallace who'was a iarmer at Claresholm and who accompanied one of our excur- sion parties and purchased fifty acres of land from us last fall. He spent the winter visiting the fruit districts in and is now settled on his land at Burton City, Arrow Lakes. 7 Palisade, Colorado, March 11, 1909. Dear Mr. Freeman, This is a fruit country, a valley which is oae solid orchard. These or- chards sell at per acre. The elevation is feet above sea level. They haye to irrigate and water costs per acre per year. There is no reason why Arrow Lake lands should not bring as much in time as these lands. I am satisfied that we can produce as much and as good fruit there, and without irrigation. Burton Valley wfll be another Palisade if the people who ara interested in land there do their part."
