Mr. H.E. Huntington, Pres. Jonathan Club, No. 27 Broad St., New York City, New York. Dear Sir:- Your letter of Jan. 13th was presented to the Board at their last regular meeting. I regret a reply has not been given before but same was occasioned from the fact of our disorganized condition and having held no regular meeting recently. As you are probably aware, we were obliged to leave our old quarters and have now simply an office for our Assistant Secretary in the Pacific Electric Bldg, to be used temporarily until the new quarters are ready for occupancy. I am directed by the Board to tender our regrets at your desire to resign the Presidency of the Club and to say that we have considered it would not be advisable to take any action thereon at this time, for the reason that the business of President can be taken care of by Vice-President Rule until our next Annual Meeting which occurs in May next.We earnestly hope that you will be pleased to allow your name to again be presented for the Presidency.Yours very truly,C.H. White (signature)Secretary.
