The United Committee of Management requesting the following for 16 new lodges x 80 members=$1920 and 16 lodge charters x $50= $800.00 for half the taxes paid for the sixteen (16) new lodges and charter money totaling $1920.00 + $800= $2720.00.  The United Committee of Management feels that the repayment of the following sum would conclude the business with Grand United Order of Odd Fellows  in America and Jurisdiction.
