J. Henry Williams, R. W. Grand Master

Office of the R. W. Grand Master F. & A. Masons in Pennsylvania, Masonic Temple Philadelphia,

The position of eminence, the great respect and the profound reverence in which the name of WASHINGTON is enshrined in the hearts of the American people, and particularly so, with the members of this Fraternity, and of all true lovers of liberty and freedom wheresoever dispersed, is the reason, if any be needed, why everything relating to this great man and worthy brother should be preserved for the future generations, to be used by them as a guide, in the cultivation of those cardinal virtues of Honor and Integrity, that should ever characterize the conduct of a good man and a good Mason.

The collection and reproduction of the letters of Brother WASHINGTON, together with the text of this book, have been prepared under my supervision, and its publication is heartily approved.

J. Henry Williams Grand Master. FEBRUARY 22, A.D. 1915 A.L. 5915.
