PROGRESSIVE NATIONAL COMMITTEE
WASHINGTON, D. C.
July 17, 1913.
Miss Jane Addams,
Progressive National Committee,
My dear Miss Addams:
I have been notified by the Secretary of the Progressive State Central Committee of Maryland of the adoption by that committee, at a meeting held on Wednesday, June 4, 1913, at the Progressive city headquarters in Baltimore, of the following resolution:
"RESOLVED: that exercising on behalf of the Progressive Party of Maryland, the right of recall which is endorsed in the Constitution of said Party, the Committee on behalf of the Party aforesaid, requests the National Committee of the Progressive Party to no longer recognize the representative of Maryland as a member thereof."
Three weeks subsequent to this action of the State Committee, Colonel Carrington, on June 25th, addressed a letter to Hon. Joseph M. Dixon, Chairman of the Progressive National Committee, Manhattan Hotel, New York City, tendering his resignation as National Committeeman of the Progressive Party for the State of Maryland.
Very truly yours,
O. K. Davis [signed]
