Page 174 - Masons in their respective dominions; nor thought it any diminution of their imperial dignities to level themselves with their brethren in Masonry, and to act as they did, The world's great Architect is our supreme master, and the unerring rule he has given us is that by which we work. Religious disputes are never suffered in the...
