EVENTS

From Moore's Freemason's Monthly Magazine, Vol. XXIII, No. 6, April, 1864, p. 178:

This excellent old Lodge, located at East Boston, had a public celebration of its officers, on the 22d ult. Previous engagements prevented our personal attendance, but we understand that there was a very large number of Brethren and invited guests, including ladies, present, and that the ceremonies and festivities of the evening passed off in a very agreeable manner. The installation ceremonies were performed by Dist. Dep. Gr. Master Nickerson, in an appropriate and impressive manner. At the close of the installation services a beautiful and costly Past Master's Jewel was presented to W. M. Thos. A. Foster, on behalf of the members of the Lodge by Past Master N. A. Apollonio, of St. Paul's Lodge, in a neat and eloquent speech, and was responded to by the recipient in a few but appropriate remarks. The members of the Lodge, their ladies and invited guests then repaired to the music rooms of J. A. Turner, Esq., where a bountiful collation had been prepared under the direction of a committee of the Lodge. The following officers were installed :—

  • Thomas A. Foster, W. M.
  • Albert Huse, S. W.
  • Nathaniel T. Gorham, J. W.
  • William H. Brown, Treas.
  • Daniel W. Palmer, Sec.
  • John Carney, Joseph Baker and Joshua Smalley, Com. of Finance
  • Joshua Smalley, Wm. H. Brown and Joseph Baker, Trustees of Lot in Woodlawn Cemetery.
