Author of the

Honour of being

follov^ing Pages has the well refpeded in moft of the

in this Metropolis, and has been a frequent Vifitor at the Queen's Arms, St. Paul's Chvrch-yardj the Globe, in Fleet -ftreet j the Jerufaleiti, at Clerkenwellj Half-moon, Cheapfide Crown and Anchor in the Str&nd ; Salutation, Grey-Friars ; and feveral others of lefs Note. An Earned Defire of becoming a perfeft Matter of Masonry, and the Succefs he met with in his firft Attempt, has rendered him capable of revealing thofe Myfteries to the World, which, till now, have been kept fecret as the Grave. He acquired his Knowledge at firft from fome loofe Papers belonging to a Merchant to whom he was nearly related, who had been a Member of the Queen's Arms, St. Paul's Church-yard. This Relatior dying about ten Years ago, the Editor became poflefled of his Effedis j and on looking over his Papers, among others he found fome Memorandums or Remarks on Mason r\, which excited his Curiofity fo far, that he refolved on accomplirtiing his Scheme, without going through the Ceremonies required by the Society. The Remarks of his Friend abovementioned furnifhed Hints fufficient to make a Trial on an in-

His Regard to the Society, and Refpedl to the to this Publication, is the only inducement which is intended not only to aflift thofe who have been lately made, and ftill remain ignorant of the true Foundation of the Art, but alfo to give all that have an Inclination to become Mafons an Opportunity of confidering the Advantages and Difadvan- * tages of the Engagements and Oaths by which they are bound. Such is the Intention of this Undertaking; and the Editor flatters himfelf the Brotherhood will not condemn his Officioufnefs in this Refpect, as it will rather ftrengthen than hurt the Interefl; of the Society ; the Fear of going through the Ceremony, which hitherto has been reprelented in fuch frightful Shapes, being the greateft Obftacle to its future Welfare and Increaie.

Origin * of the Society called Free-Mafons is by (oine to have been a certain Number of Perfons who formed a Refolution to rebuild thcTemplc o( Solomon f. This appears from the Lcilure, or *' ** rather Hiflory, of the Order, aCthe Making or Raifing of a Member to the Degree of Mafter, which is fully defctibed in the following Work. But I am inclined to think,
faid

HE

bofose the Rife of thii Science (favs an original Record) In the 4th Chapter, of Geneus it is faid, There was ai Man named Lamtcb who had two Wives named jidab and Zitlah; by Jdab he begat two Sons, Jabal. and Jubaf; by Zillab he begat one Son, called Tubal Cain, and a Daughter named Namab> Thefe ^ hildren found oUt the Beginning of all t^.e Crafts in the World } Jabal found out Geometry | he divided Flocks of Sheep, and built the firft Houfu of Timber and bltone. ^'ubal found out the Art of Muflc, and was the Father of all thofc who andled tlit Haqi. Tubal Cain was the InftruAor of all Artiticers in Iron and Brafs } and his Daughter difcovercd the Craft of Weaving. By an old Record it appears, that King ScUinen confirmed all the Chprgea f which King David had given to Mafons in Jtrufalem j and that the Temple was finiihed, A. M. 3000. In the Year 43, after Chrifl, Mafons firft came into England, and built the Monaftcry of Glajlor.bury Somo-JetJh'-re,

In all Countries where Mafonry is pradlifed, or eflabliihed at this time, there is a Grand Mailer i but formerly there was only one Grand Mailer, and he was an Kn^lijhman.

His Royal Highness Georgb Prince of Wales is the Perfon on whom the Dignity is now bcftowed,
governs all the Lodges in Great Britain^ and has the power of delivering the Conftitutions and Laws of the Society to the Maftcrs who prefide over the fuhordinatc Aflemblies which Conftitutions muft always be figncd by the Grand Secretary of the Order. The Grand MalK-r can hold i Meeting or Lodge when he thinks prop'-T, which is generally the Second Saturday in every Month in the Summer, but oftener in the Winter. The other Lodges meet regularly twice a Month in the Winter Half-Year, and once a Month in the Summer ; and the Members of each Lodge pay Quarterly, from 3s. 6d. to 5s. into the Hands of the I'reaiurcr ; and this generally defrays the Expencc of their Meetings. There arc alfo Quarterly Communications or Meetings, held, at which arc present the Matter and Wardens of every Rccular ConiHtution in and near London^ where the fcveral Lodges fend, by the faid Wardens, different Sums of Money to be paid into the Hands of the Treafurer General^ and ap> propriated to fuch charitable Ufcs as the Grand Mader, and the Maflers of the different Lodges under him, think proper \ but thefe Charities arc chiefly confined to Mafons only, anch

It muft be remarked, thit' the Authority of a Maftcr, though Chief of the Lodge, reaches no farther than he is himfelfan Obferver of the Laws ; ihould he infringe them, the Brethren njver fail to cenftirc him; and it this has no KfFct, they ha^c a Power of depofing him, on appealing to the Crrand Mader, and giving their Reafons for it ; but they (bldom pi'oceed to this Extremity. As no Doubt the Reader chufcs to be made acquainted with every Circumftancc of the Ceremony of making a Malbii, I ihall begin with the following Directions, and proceed regularly in the Defcription of what further concerns Mafonry. Man defirous of becoming a Free Mafon, (hould endeavour to get acquainted with a Member of foine good Lodge, who will propofe him as a Candidate for AdmiiTion the next Lodge-Night. The Brother who propofcs a New Member, is likewife obliged to inform the Brethren of the Qualifications of the Candidate*. Upon this it ls'deh;ited whether or not he (hall be admitted; and it befn<^ arried in the Affirmative, the next Step is to go with tlic propoler the enfuing Lodge-Night. The Evening being come when a Lodge is to be held, which generally begins about Seven in the Winter, and Nine in the bummer, as previous Notices are fent to the Members for this Purpofe ; the Mafons are punftual to Time, and it frequently happens, that, in half an Hour, the whole Lodtjc, to the Number of Fifty or Sixty, are aflembled. The Mafter, the two Afliftants, Secretary, and Treai furer, begin with putting over their Necks a blue Ribbon of a triasgular Shape , to the Maftcr's Ribbon hangs a Rule and Compafs, which is in fome Lodges made of Goldj though in others only gilt the Affiftants, Senior Wardens, and the

As

white Leather Apron, which you may ftiew him as if by Accident. He will, perhaps, afk you what Degree you are of, and defire a Sign, which you may fliew him with Readinefs, and jikewife inform him what Lodge you belong to. It being contrary to the Rules of the Society that the Tyler (hould admit a Stranger, he will go in, and acquaint the Mafter, that fuch a Perfon (mentioning your Name, and the Lodge you told him you belonged to) craves Admittance. Upon which one of the Wardens will come out to cxaminc you. Draw your Right Hand acrofs your Throat edgeways, and he will fay, ""What's that?"

Then he will take you by the firft Joint of the Thumb of your Riiijht laand, and prefs it hard" with the Thmnb-Nail of the Right Hand, and aflc, " What's this ?"rYou muft immediately anfwer, ** The Grip of an Entered Apprentice."
