A Message from John E. Bryson

We recently sent you an important  e-mail  transmitting  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


        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 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 have  misplaced or not yet received your proxy card in the mail, you may contact Joyce Miranda at EquiServe by email at
jmiranda@equiserve.com to obtain your control number.  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.

This email is being sent to you on behalf of your Board of  Directors.  For more  information  on the Directors and
their interests in the above matters,  and for other important  information,  we strongly encourage you to read the
Edison  International and Southern California Edison Company Joint Proxy Statement,  filed with the S.E.C. on April
7, 2003.  Copies of the Proxy  Statement were sent to employee shareholders  beginning on April 7, 2003. Our Proxy
Statement is available on the S.E.C.  website,  www.sec.gov.  Our Proxy  Statement  and 2002 Annual Report are also
available free of charge on our website, www.edisoninvestor.com.
