"Most Worshipful Grand Master, Sir, to

duty, but one I feel Incapable of filling
v Ith entire satisfaction to myself. I, in
deed, think I mav modestly doubt that
anr man could frame aright words to
bufflciently express the regard In which
you are held by your brethren. But, Wor
snlpful brother, where words fall most
signally, actions speak loudest.
"The suffrage of your brethren has
elevated ou to your present high posi
tion on twelve consecutive occasions
W'hat greater tribute could be paid to
a man? Worshipful grand master. It
must be a source of Infinite comfort to
Jou to know that ou have the confi
dence, lore, and trust of the many breth
ren In this Jurisdiction, and the admir
ing respect of thousands of Masons
throughout the known world. We are
proud of your attainments: we respect
you for your ability to perfectly per
form the arduous duties of your post,
and we love you for jour bearing and
conduct among us But, as I said be
fore, words here again Jail their -purpose,
and I musttbeg of jou to accept
this as a substitute, assuring sou that
It Is filled tp overflowing with the senti
