The Real Secret of Freemasonry

No one need be alarmed about any book writ­ten to expose Masonry. It is utterly harm­less. The real secret of Masonry can­not be learned by pry­ing eyes or curi­ous inquiry. We do well to pro­tect the pri­vacy of the lodge, but the secret of Masonry can be known only by those who are ready and wor­thy to receive it. Only a pure heart and an hon­est mind can know it. Oth­ers seek it in vain and never know it, though they be adept in all the signs and tokens of every rite and rank of the Craft.
