A Vindication of Masonry

"Though every man who carefully listens to the dictates of reason, may arrive at a clear persuasion of the necessity and beauty of virtue both private and public; yet it is a full recommendation of a society to have these pursuits continually in view as the sole objects of their association: and these are the laudable bonds that unite Freemasons together in one indissoluble fraternity."

- Excerpt from a Discourse composed by Brother Charles Leslie, member of the Vernon Kilwinning Lodge, Edinburgh, and delivered by him at the consecration of that lodge on the 15th of May, 1741.
