    How to politely ask a professor / teacher to cancel ....

    Dear all,
    I would like to ask here the most polite way to ask a professor nicely to not be on the examination committee.
    How it all started was my mentor initially agreed on a panel of professors to be on my exam committee and I've mailed them which they have accepted the invitation.
    However, after a turn of events and further discussions with mentor / faculty, we would like to change some of the panels
    (to be specific, the reasons are:
    A) was changed because location / time inconvenience - not working in the same faculty
    B), the other was removed because theres' already enough people in the panel.
    How should I write the email to politely turn down?

    I have just come up with a letter please let me know what you think of it. I am wondering should I go into the specifics or better to leave it as generic as possible.

    Please let me know what you think and thank you so much
    =======
    "Dear Prof.

    Thank you so much for agreeing to be on my thesis committee in our previous email and I really appreciated your positive reply.
    After further discussion with x, I was advised that
    A) it would be more suitable for me to select a committee member from the same program
    B) I have obtained enough members on my committee

    Thank you very much again for your time and consideration

    Sincerely,
    ======

    It looks OK, but I would say;

    I have enough members on the committee.
