"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”

  1. Thanks for the plug, Chris. Would you change the address to 285 Whitney Avenue,New Haven, CT?

  2. I wonder if he'll autograph my big, yellow Dummies book?

  3. More likely, Tom, he'd autograph your big, orange Idiots book--but you know that! You're just yanking our chains! And you do it so well. Be well, my friend.

  4. I'll autograph any book you bring, though I do prefer orange over yellow. If the book's yellow, I guess the appropriate inscription is, "From one idiot to another!"

  5. Brent, you'll have a great time. Those Nutmeggers know how to make a fella feel welcome. Until Accuosti shows up with his "Oops, wrong book" gag. Give it a laugh. Otherwise, he gets no affection at all. He's a grand representative area something or other, and they all talk behind his back.

  6. I dont' care if they talk about me good or bad - at least they're talking about me.
