Letter from National War Work Council of Young Men's Christian Associations of the United States.

Front of letter, "With the colors", picture of American glad and an upside down red triangle. Letter addressed to Mr. WH Hutchison of South Oshawa, Canada. Reads: "Dear Sir, My folks send me the letter you wrote my father. I am glad you rec'd. "Beauty" all O.N. but am sorry she was delayed so long. Hope the trip didn't hurt her any and don't suppose it did as she is a very healthy bitch. I've run across a few dogs since I've been in this camp. Seen an Eng Bull one pretty good heavy Boston and several Airedales. Some good ones. I saw and called as fine a young Airedale bitch to me one evening as one often sees. She had brass studded color and blue ribbon on her neck but no name on plate. So I couldn't find out who she belonged to but she was a real one. I was about 2 weeks and when I got able to get about some I noticed an Airedale bitch at a fine station close by and went over (of course) and talked about to the owner (a fireman) and he told me about a fellow in a different ward of the Hospital having a lot of Airedales and I went to see him and who do you think it was. It was Sergeant Fowler who... you suppose as I have myself read so much about in "Kennel Review". He always sent in pictures and write ups at Airedales and by game hunts in the West and South West, etc. Wrote from Mexican border quite a bit. Well he has been in the service 12 years he says, and is now 30 years old. He's a little wary fellow and not afraid of the devil from my opinion. He has 2 wild bear hides in his room and a big 43 six shooter holster. He is different than you and I he breeds for hunting [underlined] exclusively and don't care for show as we do but he breeds from the best winning streams. His dogs and pups are sure game all right and he has one Monarch bitch can do most anything but tells. He owns and has here that dog byle used to have signed by Ch. His Highness. I suppose you have often read of him as he is pretty widely known. Name El Collado Royalist. Had one ear torn off in fight. He says he always takes his dogs wherever he goes that is part of them a pretty good bunch although he says he also has a big kennel (Jack he calls it) somewhere in the southwest, in Texas. ...on around with some friend. How he gets by taking those dogs along in the Army I don't see but some of these old "Regulars" that are on the... get by with a lot that some fellows aren't. Well here is hoping the war's soon over so my brother and I can get back to the game again. My address may change at any time now as I signed a transfer this week and don't know what I will be transferred to get either but suppose I will get out of the infantry and hope so as they sure put you through and I don't like Infantry much. You can write me at present address and I will likely get it anyways if I do change or if you don't, write soon I can drop you a card with my new address and you then write me. Sincerely, Raymond A."

Greetings Announcement

Title reads: "To All Geni, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles, Imperial Representatives, and Citizens of the Invisible Empire". Reads as "Greeting": (I) "In Union there is strength. Anything to the contrary scatters abroad. A real united Klankraft in Canada is now being born. The real Klan is coming into being. The recent events are not to be regretted. There is a divine Providence back of an in it all. In the stress the real worth or lack of it has revealed itself. Those who compose the Klan are true, real, sincere and they came into the Klan because they knew that we must find an adequate remedy at once or we are doomed as Protestants in the world. We now know where we are. Those who sought to rise to a place of leadership, or shall we say "Dictatorship", over the abused reputations of others have been revealed and the Klan has been saved from them forever. no real Klansman will follow them. The real Klan is now taking definite shape in Canada"; (II) Mentions the amalgamation of the 3 main Klan groups in Canada, "Now that our house has been purged by Providence of all dead timber and that the old ship has had all the barnacles scraped off we are ready to set to sea"; (III) Urging Klansmen to abstain "from all the bitterness and from all perfidy. Those who are responsible for the recent disturbances have tried to build the cause upon hate, prejudice, slander, narrowness and false report. They alone are the sufferers. The real Klan is going on just the same. Thus they have put themselves outside our realm and outside the fold of Klankraft"; (IV) Mentions new features to be adopted, such as appointing a new "Imperial Representative" to go as a "Kourier to the Klans, a teacher or messenger whose duty it shall be to teach Klankraft and to help in all the details of the forward movement and work"; (V) Includes the following statement from Dr. Fowler: "Faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen [...] I was to turn over the higher Orders. That promise was also given in good faith. But no sooner than my back was turned than certain parties who had been at work ever since last June to undermine me, began a campaign of vile slander against me seemingly hoping to elevate themselves by destroying me. Well, I am not the kind that sits down under such perfidy. I lost all confidence and of course refused to deliver the other Orders. It was a gracious Providence that saved them from such unworthy hands. There was a fiasco meeting held in January. In that I have absolutely no confidence. The same ugly spirit prevails. We cannot build the Klan about such. Better a thousand times that we disband now than that we try to build that way. We have no room for those who thinks only of self. The key to our holy cause is "NON SILBA SED ANTHAR". To these principles I have been true. I have kept the faith, slanderous, false, purposefully wicked statements to the contrary notwithstanding. My record is before the members. They know I defy the world to show to the contrary. For this reason I am remaining, for the present, with the continuing, the original Klan until it can go forward without me. I have no ambitions, save the building of the real Klan in Canada. I shall give every ounce of my strength to the worthy men and women who have now been chosen to do the work in Canada. I have made the Orders available for them. As soon as the Imperial Officers are ready to take over the work, I must go on to another wider field in the great Klan struggle, for as you know the Klan movement is international. I bid you trust the leaders now before you. You are the only original, official body now functioning in Canada. All others must soon pass out of existence. I am I.T.S.U.B. C Lewis Fowler".; (VI) "Let all Klans declare at once just what they are going to do. If you want all of Klankraft, then come on with us, declare your loyalty to the Headquarters that has the message and the Orders and the program". Bottom signed "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Headquarters".

"TEACHINGS of Our Ark of the Covenant"

Titled "Teaching: Our Ark of the Covenant". Outlines the "Ark of Our Covenant" that Klanspeople have entered into, which contains: (1) The Bible, "The symbol of, and foundation of, all our liberties. Take the Bible out of Anglo-Saxon civilization and we are ruined. The Bible is the Magna Charta of our civilization. We solemnly resolve to keep it so -to keep it both in all our public schools and homes. We warn all papists and aliens to keep unholy hands off the bible. This is no maudling sentiment. We mean just that. We acknowledge the Bible as God's gift to men and as the source of all our light and life"; (2) The Flag, "The fled is the symbol of British idealism, of British unity, of British life, is the symbol of that which separates and differentiates us from all the other nations and peoples of the earth. It is an expression of Anglo-Saxon, historical achievement and is, therefore, sacred to us. Unholy, alien hands must be kept off that flag and all it represents. The Anglo-Saxon race is essentially, racially, and fundamentally Protestant. Hence, the Flag must express, and does express, the Protestant spirit and viewpoint of life"; (3) The Sword, "The sword is a symbol of defense. If there are ten million Klansmen in the world, then ten million swords will leap from their scabbards in defense of Anglo-Saxon, Protestant institutions. The Klan as an organization is set up to save the World from the sword, for if we do not settle these great problems by intelligent discussion and exchange of ideas, they will be settled by our children with the sword"; (4) The Water, "dedication fluid, is symbolic of Klannishness. In the exercise of an honourable Klannishness we propose to solve many of our problems. We are covenanted together to practice four kinds of Klannishness (a) socially (b) physically (c) morally (d) vocationally. This covers the whole round of our lives. [...] We must practise Klannishness -we must be true to our covenant. A member of this Order who refuses to practice Klannishness thereby proves his unworthiness and makes his advancement in Klancraft impossible. This is the acid test to be applied to each member"; (5) The Fiery Cross, "both a holy symbol and a positive challenge. The Cross is a symbol of "LIGHT" and "SACRIFICE". Our motto is "NONSILBA SED ANTHAR". We "serve" and "sacrifice" for the right. The Fiery Cross is a symbol of sacrifice for the right. It is a challenge to service. These were are sworn to protect with all they mean -the ideals, traditions, institutions and customs they represent"; Document signed by "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Kligrapp Lewis Fowler".

Personal Bulletin

Titled "Personal Bulletin", addressed to "All Genii, Imperial Representatives, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Klanswomen in Canada". Addressing recent questions about the "Second Order of Klankraft -Knights Kamelia -as to its rightful authority", desires to explain their history. Outlines the historical background of the Knights Kamelia, starting from its copyright in 1927 by C. Lewis Fowler, who was then the Imperial Kligrapp of the Order of Klankraft in Canada. Then, two groups of the Klan in Canada amalgamated, and Fowler became Imperial Wizard. He then set up his own official body and adopted his own methods of procedures, but Mr. fauve soon claimed that Fowler could not do this work. The copyright document is in Toronto Headquarters but requires further certification. Therefore, any attempt to delegate authority to Knights Kamelia is in violation of the copyright privileges. Document signed by C. Lewis Fowler and J.H. Hawkins.

Thank you letter from "Services by Canadian National Railways"

Envelop and letter from "Services by Canadian National Railways". Reads: "Dear Hutch; I would like to have you know your many courtesies and good service rendered at Oshawa during the past year have been appreciated. I hope yourself and your family enjoy a very Merry Christmas..."

Special Bulletin no. 36

Wishing to address the changing outlook of the Klan due to increased membership. Because they did not foresee this many members to enroll, the Klan has shifted from being a sectional organization to a national one. Apparently many members have been receiving letters from Dr. C. Lewis Fowler, who is attempting to seize control of the Klan, but ultimately failed and now "banished in Canada and also in the United States". On the second day of their recent Klonvocation, Fowler visited Headquarters and took "supplies", so they changed the locks and keys. Makes mention that, according to an auditor's report, Fowler received funds in 1925 in the amount of %5, 785, $390.03 in travelling expenses, and an additional $368.72 advanced to him, as well as some $3,670.000 and another $11145.16 for expenses in 1926. Also, Fowler and Jos. Ballons collected money that was never handed over to the Treasurer, he stole their official stamp design, and claims that Mrs. Ballons is leader of the Ladies of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada despite it actually being Mrs. Lydia Barrett. The bulletin goes on to talk about his other allegations, such as his stealing official records from headquarters, not returning the "Second Order" upon his forced resignation, and spreads slander. The bulleting is signed by "J.S. Lord", Imperial Kligrapp.

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.
