Your Majesty, Ladies a-d
and brother masons :
We are gathered here to-day by
of the Grand Lodge of California,
F. & A. M , under authority
given me as follows: "You will convene
the Grand Lodge of California,
F. & A. M., at Honolulu, H. I., on
the 27th day of December, 1S92, for
the purpose of laying the corner-stone
of the new Masonic Temple at that
place, performing said ceremony in
my place and stead, accepting this as
your authority and deputation from
me, C. R. Gretman, Grand Master of
the Grand Lodge of California."; to
witness and assist in the ceremony of
laying the corner-stone of this

From that time our Lodge has prospered,

and twenty-seven members, and
are able to erect this Temple.
Masonry lias always held a high
position in Honolulu; sovereigns,
governors, judges, clergymen and
those most respected in our community
have and do belong to the order.
I do not say that all good citizens
are Masons, but I do say that all good
Masons are good citizens.
Brother Masons, now that we shall
become more prominent, let me ask
you to unite with our neighbors the
Young Men's Christian Association
and the Honolulu Library and Reading
Room Association, iu doing all
we can by our good example, to promote
good morals, and good citizenship
