Addressed to "All Genii, Kind and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Citizens of the Invisible Empire, Knights (and Ladies) of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada"

Addressed to "my faithful and esteemed Klansmen and Klanswomen". In light of C. Fowler's messages, must now look to the more vital issues at hand. Reads, "…with upturned faces, written over with a deeper trust, with a kindlier eye, and a warmer beat of the heart, realizing as never before that in the Invisible Empire are the forces, the issues and the life that abides forever". Continues to quote Tennyson, "I dreamed that stone by stone I reared a sacred flame, a temple, neither pagoda, mosque, nor church, but a loftier, simpler, always open-doored to every breath from Heaven, and Truth and Peace, and Love and Justice came and dwelt therein". Further quotes "To live as gently as I can,/ To be no matter where --a man;/ To take what comes of good or ill,/ And cling to faith and honor still;/ To do my best and let that stand,/ The record of my brain and hand;/ And then should failure come to me,/ Still work and hope for victory". Wishes Fowler continued success. Also notes that the Imperial Wizard is in poor health, but wishes to show signs of convalescence. Signed the Knights of Ku Klux Klan of Kanada.

Addressed to "All Genii, Kind and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Citizens of the Invisible Empire, Knights (and Ladies) of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada"

Reads: "It becomes my duty to-day to send you a message that tugs at my very heart strings. This message is one of farewell to you, since I am retiring from the position of Imperial Kligrapp of the organization. There is always a feeling of gratitude as well as of responsibility in the heart of the man, who through Providence, is permitted to bring any institution into existence. I shall always have the you and the pride of being the father of the Ku Klux Klan in Canada. It is the child of my heart's love, and of course, this love can never be diminished or the union broken. I go, believing I have made a worthy contribution to our Anglo Saxon cause and to Protestantism. This is some measure lessens my regret at going. My world has been done --my contributions made --the movement is well and powerfully established --the foundation made secure! The organization has produced many great souls and will yet produce an adequate and sincere, and able leadership. Trust these leaders and uphold and co-operate with them. This is my parting charge. I came to Canada for the purpose of setting up this movement. I came to give to it the very best in my life. That I have fulfilled my vow, I believe no one will question. All the while I have known that at the proper time, the movement should be turned over to worthy men and women in Canada, who have espoused the cause and accepted the obligation o carrying on the work. [...] I have the pleasure of realizing that we have many thousands of members who are faithful and true, scattered over the county all the way form Halifax to Vancouver. That these Klansmen and Klanswomen will "CARRY ON" to success, and greet victory, I have not the slightest doubt. My associations with his Lordship, J. MacNab Wilson, Imperial Wizard and with the other members of the Imperial Kloncilium and with the thousands of our citizens has been of such a nature as to bring to my soul, memories to be cherished forever. I part reluctantly with these fellowships. It grieves me to even think that I shall not likely see you again soon [...] I bid you God speed as you go forward in the great task of building this great cause in Canada. I charge you, faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen BE TRUE, BE LOYAL, STICK TOGETHER, PRACTISE THE PRINCIPLES of our great cause, ESCHEW PETTY JEALOUSIES, and DIFFERENCES, for your opportunities are all but infinite and your obligations are very great. As I go form you, conscious of my many shortcomings here in your midst, I earnestly solicit your prayers and a continuation of that blessed fraternity and friendship which I have had from every one of you. Let nothing divide or disturb your course. Our enemy is united through fear and external force. Our Unity must be from choice and deep moral conviction. Practice Clannishness and secrecy and keep your eye on the pole star of our great cause. May God bless the Cause and you". Signed by C. Lewis Fowler, Imperial Kligrapp.
