  • Description
    "Grand Lodge circular, ordered to be read in all lodges". Explains how "the secret ballot and acceptance by unanimous vote constitute the impregnable bulwark of the Masonic Order... without them, Freemasonry could not exist at all." Also discusses the abuses of the secret ballot that have taken place by those who "seize on the ballot-box as an instrument of vengeance", and how that can destroy a lodge.
