Many go to the lodge room, see the work, and think it grand and impressive. But how many look behind the scenes? How many know, or even dream, that the-inner recesses of the ritual tell us of scenes and events which take us back into the far distance of early, and even prehistoric times; how many have searched for these things? There are but very few among. The members of our Order who have the knowledge of what the ritual contains, most of us have neither the time nor inclination to look up the matter; and it is for the instruction of such, that this little volume has been prepared; it is of importance that we should know of these things, as they will give us a greater comprehensive idea of the ritual, and will thus impress it more firmly upon our minds.
