EVENTS

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS, DECEMBER 1856

From Moore's Freemason's Monthly, Vol. XVI, No. 4, January 1857, Page 107:

This new Lodge was consecrated and its officers installed at the Masonic Temple in this city, on the evening of the 26th Dec. last. The attendance of Brethren was large, and the ceremonies were unusually interesting and effective. After the consecration services, the W. Master of the Lodge, Dr. Clement A. Walker, was installed by the M. W. Grand Master, whose name the Lodge bears, and who availed himself of the occasion to present to the Lodge, through its Master, a beautiful Jewel, for its present and future presiding officers. The Jewel is of silver, richly chased, with a Diamond in the angle at which it is suspended from the Collar. It was manufactured in London. On investing the Master elect, the Grand Master addressed him as follows :—

I warmly greet you as Master elect of this Lodge, and I congratulate its members, that it commences, what I trust will prove a long and prosperous career, under the presiding influences of so able a Head.

My Brother: Though but young in Masonry, you have already concentrated the activities and labors ordinarily acquired only by many years of devotion. With great ability and success you have sustained the chair of the oldest Lodge in these U. States. You are now at the Head of an Encampment which has been raised from torpor to brilliancy ; and now, investing you with the insignia of your office here I doubt not the vivifying influence of your administration will continue. Receive therefore this Jewel, as a slight testimonial of the regards and interest of the donor towards you and your associates. I need not tell you its emblematic relation to duty. It has one addition, a diamond, which monitorially is not laid down; but may it teach you, that the heart should have the purity of the diamond, without its hardness, and all its brightness, without its coldness.

The remainder of the officers were installed by the S. W. John T. Heard, who acted on the occasion as Deputy Grand Master. The services were interspersed with appropriate music, and we have rarely seen them more acceptably performed, and this was the general sentiment of all present. At their conclusion, the M. W. Grand Master addressed the new Lodge in his usual happy and effective manner; after which the Grand Lodge retired. We had intended to lay the address before our readers in this connection, but a pressure of other matter obliges us to defer it until our next. We are happy to add, in conclusion, that the Lodge is in the hands of young, active, and devoted Brethren, whose intelligence and social position are a sure guaranty of its future prosperity and usefulness, and that, while in present hands at least, it will not tarnish, by act, of its own, the brightness of the honored name it bears.
