"Yesterday the workmen engaged in excavating for the foundation fo the extension of the City Hall on Court Street in this city found at the northeast corner . . . the corner-stone . . . with the metal box placed therein at the time it was laid in 1833. . . At the time of the demolition of the old building some months ago, Mayor Fitzgerald inquired of me concerning the location and circumstances of laying the corner-stone, as the newspapers of the time stated it had been laid with Masonic ceremonies. I examined our Grand Lodge records . . . but found no written record of any organization for the purpose . . the date of the ceremony was September 28, 1833." Though there is no record in the Proceedings, the letter details the Masonic membership of nearly every person named on the plate found in the corner-stone.
