From the East

An interesting little tid-bit from the Farmer’s Almanac in 1823…

A real Freemason is distinguished from the rest of Mankind by the uniform unrestricted rectitude of his conduct. Other men are honest in fear of punishment which the law might inflict; they are religious in expectation of being rewarded, or in dread of the devil in the next world. A Freemason would be just if there were no laws, human or divine except those written in his heart by the finger of his Creator. In every climate, under every system of religion, he is the same. He kneels before the Universal Throne of God in gratitude for the blessing he has received and humble solicitation for his future protection. He venerates the good men of all religions. He gives no offense, because he does not choose to be offended. He contracts no debts which he is certain he cannot discharge, because he is honest upon principle.

I find it quite interesting when you find Masonic information and references in documents and books where you least expect it.

Thanks to all of you who continue to support our Fraternity’s principals with dedication, passion, and tireless efforts.

Jim Bitner, WM
