Of Eminent Jlmerican Free-Jflasons, and Mistory of the JUasonic Instilution in the United States,
Is in preparation ; and the publication may be expected to commence in the course of the present year.
Each part vvill contain three Portraits, and occasionally Historical and other illustrations engraved on Steel, with from 24 to 32 pages of letter press, in a full sized Imperial octavo form. The price to subscribers wil! be 50 cents a number, payable on delivery. Ten numbers will complete a volume.
The object of this work is to show, by the character, services and opinions of those who have been alike eminent in public life and in Masonry, that our Institution has been, is, and ought to be cherished and honored by the wise and virtuous, tlje intellectual, and the philanthropic.
To my Brethren in whose care are the archives of the Grand Lodges, &c., &c., in the United States, I take this means of presenting a request that they will aid me with such materials as are important, without delay. The opinions which have been expressed every where, as to the effect of such a publication on the public mind, and on the Order, are full of encouragement; but 1 must ask the more substantial assistance of the Fraternity in filling up such a subscription list, as will at least secure a revenue equal to the expense, which has not yet been effected. To those who will act as agents, and make prompt returns, a very liberal commission will be allo wed on receipts.
All communications in connection with the work, will be addressed to the Editor,
JAMES HERRING, New- York.
