George Washington's Masonic Correspondence as Found Among the Washington Papers in the Library of Congress allows for an insight of the great esteem in which the first President held Freemasonry. Since his early days, Washington had been an honored member of the fraternity, formerly established in England in 1717. This work groups the material together in chronological order, and shows the surroundings and conditions under which the correspondence was made. The position of eminence, the great respect and the profound reverence in which the name of Washington is enshrined in the hearts of the American people, and particularly so, with the members of Freemasonry, and of all true lovers of liberty and freedom wherever dispersed, are sure to be of interest for generations to come.
