--Grand Meeting of the Order.
--Charles H. Wintersmith
, P. G. M., of the Grand Lodge
, has published an address ‘"to the Present and Past Grand Masters of all the Grand Lodges
of Free Masons in all the States."’ The address is also approved of by the Past Grand Masters
of the Order in the States of Ohio
This address refers to the fact that the Order has always proclaimed perfect freedom of political and religious opinions, and has never engaged in political or partisan warfare.
In view of the perilous condition of the country, however, the address suggests that there should be a national assemblage of delegates of the Order at Louisville
, with the view to consult upon some feasible plan of fraternal and honorable adjustment, which may give the lead to a return of the North and South to fraternal bonds of friendship, and thus restore peace and prosperity to a now distracted country.
