    there was a local effort here for the Aug. 16 Saturday precinct walk, organized right out of the local ward meetinghouse.

      I'm betting there's a lot of local action, there may even be some general direction coming from hq.  But the kind of directions in this letter just aren't the mormon way of doing things.  And that's quite apart from the fact that it's clearly a poor forgery.

        There's no source, but I wouldn't disbelieve it just because of the syntax. Not that I'm averring its truth, but it doesn't automatically ring false for me. Packer doesn't write his own letters anyway, and if he's got a political aide coordinating things, some of the more youthful-sounding wording could make sense.

          The church doesn't work that way.  A letter like this actually would likely be written by Packer.  Packer is very unlikely to have a young aide.  His aides will be older and very competent.  But even granting your premise of a young person, any young mormon who would be working with Packer would not write like that.
