To the Executive Committee of the California State Grange,
With the your receipt of the letter of revocation, I respectfully request that the leadership of the California State Grange recognized the authority of the National Grange as prescribed in the Digest of Laws (Chapter 4, Article V, Section 4.5.9) and California Corporation Code Section 7140 and return the Charter to my representative, Bob Clouse. In addition all real and personal property, organizational records, and other items, upon being turned over to the National Grange will be held in trust for the required period.
This action causes me great sadness, but I have confidence that we will be able to reorganize the California State Grange in the future.
Edward L. Luttrell,
Master The National Grange
