We recently mailed you important proxy material and voting instructions for Edison International's annual shareholders meeting. Your
support is extremely important and I strongly recommend that you take an active role in voting.

o   Vote "FOR" the election of directors; and

o   Vote "AGAINST" the shareholder proposal to redeem the Company's shareholder rights agreement.

In 1996 the Edison International Board adopted a Rights Agreement (which we refer to as our "shareholder rights plan" and the
proponent of the shareholder proposal refers to it as a "poison pill") to enhance the ability of Edison International's shareholders
to receive fair value for their investment in the event of an attempted takeover of your company. The Board, comprised of a
substantial majority of non-management Directors, has reviewed our shareholder rights plan on a regular basis and continues to
believe that the rights plan is in the best interests of Edison International's shareholders and should remain in place for the
future. Our shareholder rights plan is designed not only to prevent hostile, unsolicited takeover attempts that deprive some
shareholders of the ability to obtain a full and fair price for their shares, but also to prevent other abusive takeover practices at
the expense of fairness to the Company. Our shareholder rights plan is a "poison pill" only with respect to those abusive practices.

Rights plans like ours are common among S&P 500 companies. I urge you to follow the Board's recommendation when voting your proxy.

You should have received a proxy card in the mail to vote your shares. Alternatively, you may vote your shares by telephone or the
Internet by entering your control number from the proxy card and following the instructions on the proxy card. If you do not receive
your proxy card in the mail within the next few days or have misplaced it, you may contact Joyce Miranda at EquiServe at (201)
222-4685 to obtain a new one.  Your vote must be received by 2 p.m. (Pacific Time) on May 12, 2003.

If you also hold shares in a brokerage account and/or in your own name, you will receive a separate proxy card(s) to vote those
shares. Please be sure to vote these shares in addition to your employee plan shares. Be sure to follow the voting instructions on
each card. If you have any questions, please call Jo Ann Goddard at (626) 302-2515 or Heidi Townshend at (626) 302-1453.

By pulling together as a team you will help ensure the success of this year's meeting.

Thank you for your continued support.

/s/ John E. Bryson
