The Boston morning Post in the had volume . 45. To the Fuhei. Awhile to a Public mind remained i state of excitement to which it had k carried by the partial and Inaam Matory i presentations of certain Oft aces commit red bar a few miss guided member of the malic institution in a sister state it seemed r the undersigned residents of Boston and Imlej to big expedient to Ternin from a Blic of to Weir Oten rents As masons. But believing the now to be fully come when their fellow citizens will receive with Candor it not with a tis faction a solemn and unequivocal denial of the allegations which during the last hyc i consequence of their connexion with the masonic fraternity have been reiterated Afram them they respectfully ask permission to in Ite attention to the subjoined declaration. , it has been frequently asserted and published to the world that in the Severa Deir Rees of freemasonry As they Are con rred in the United states the candidate on his initiation and subsequent advancement binds himself by oath to sustain his masonic Brethren in acts which Are at variance with the fundamental principles of morality and incompatible with his duly As a Good and Feitli Ful citizen injustice therefore to themselves and with a View to establish Tuu tii and expose imposition the undersigned Many of us the recipients of every degree of 1 rce Nias onry known and acknowledged m this country do most solemnly deny the existence of any such obligations in the masonic institution so far As our knowledge respectively extends. And we As solemnly aver that no person is admitted to the institution without first being made acquainted with the nature of the obligations which he will be required to incur and assume. Freemasons a secures its members in the Freedom of thought and of speech and permits each and every one to act according to the dictates of his own conscience in matters of religion and of his personal preferences in Nia mrs of politics. It neither knows nor does it to ii illicit upon its erring members however wide May be their aberrations from duty any penalties or punishments outlier than those of admonition Bush elision and expulsion. The obligations of the institution require of its members a strict obedience to the Laws of god and of Man. So far from being bound by any engagements inconsistent with the happiness and Prosperity of the a action every citizen who becomes a Mason is Douvil bound to be True to his go to Hia i of untidy and to his . In the language of the constitutions of the order which Are printed and open for Public inspection and which Are used As text Booksin All the lodges he is required to keep and obey the moral Law to be a quiet and peaceable citizen True to his government and just to his Masonus disdains the making of proselytes. Slie opens the portals other Asylum to tii Ose Only who seek admission with the re coming nution. Of a Charack a unspotted by immorality and vice. Fc5he simply requires a the candidate his assent to one great Tunda mental religious truth the existence and Providence of god and a practical acknowledgement of those infallible doctrines Lor the government of life which Are written by Llie tinier of god on the heart of Man. Fister Mainino Sulci Seniti Zients As masons As citizens As christians and As moral men and deeply impressed with the conviction Llinat the masonic institution has been and May continue to be productive of great Good to their fellow men and having a received the Laws of the society and its accumulated funds in sacred Trust for charitable uses a the undersigned can neither renounce nor abandon it. We most cordially unite with our Brethren of Salem and Vicinity in the declaration and Hope that a should the people of this country become so infatuated As to deprive masons of their civil rights in violation of their written constitutions and the wholesome spirit of just Laws and free governments a vast majority of the fraternity will still remain firm confiding in god Aud the rectitude of their Iii editions for Consolation under the trials to which they May be exposed.
