EVENTS

PRESENTATION, JANUARY 1858

From Moore's Freemason's Monthly, Vol. XVII, No. 4, February 1858, Page 119:

The last stated meeting of Revere Lodge was made the occasion of a very interesting and pleasing occurrence. The retiring Master, W. William W. Baker, having served the Lodge as Master from its commencement, was presented by the members thereof with a beautiful silver testimonial, expressive of their brotherly love and Masonic estimation.

The presentation was made by the Senior Warden, Br. Wm. Rogers, in a very felicitous and highly pleasing address. He adverted to the labors of Br. Baker as one of the founders of the Lodge, his devotion to its interests, and his jealous care and watchfulness while Master. The speaker also alluded in fitting terms to the services of his Worshipful Brother in other departments of the Institution ; his love for the Craft, and the confidence and esteem in which he was held, not only by the members of his own Lodge, but also in the Order at large. Brother Rogers' remarks were exceedingly appropriate, and were listened to with great attention.

Brother Baker, in reply, was much affected at this unexpected event, and ex pressed his heartfelt thanks for the beautiful testimonial and the flattering terms in which it had been conveyed. He alluded to the success that had attended their endeavors to form a first class Lodge, and their present prosperous condition, and ascribed it, in a great measure, to that harmony and oneness of sentiment that had ever characterized them as a Lodge.

Revere Lodge already numbers more than fifty members, a majority of whom have so far perfected themselves as Masons, as to be able to fill with honor, almost any office in the Lodge. This, Brother Baker held to be a sure and certain foundation, and the only sure and certain foundation for a Masonic Lodge, and urged upon the Brethren the necessity of attention to the study of the ritual, and a prompt attendance at the meetings, both of the Lodge and sodality. He concluded with trusting that the harmony and brotherly love that now existed might ever prevail, and that the present W. M. (Brother Sanders,) might leave to his successor, as happy, as prosperous, and as united a Lodge.

The testimonial is a Silver Pitcher, of chaste design, elegantly wrought, and beautifully finished. It is inscribed —

From the Members of
Revere Lodge
to
Worshipful William W. Baker,
for his
Eminent services as First Master of this Lodge.
January, 1858."

The ceremony was witnessed by a large number of the Brethren, who expressed themselves much pleased at the appropriateness and the interest of the occasion.
