  1. Greetings, I was wondering why this issue is not up on the Masonic Society website while issue 5 is. Thank you.

  2. I'm no longer the editor, but at the time, we made the decision not to make all of our issues available at no cost. We continue to sell back issues, and still have most of them available. The ones we put out for the public were the ones we sold out of.
