Hope everyone's holiday was merry & bright!
Came across the following as I was cleaning out some things left to me by an
elderly aunt. It is a printed letter/program directed to members of the
Boston Masons...hope a name or names will ring a bell. At the very least it
puts all these gentlemen at a specific place in time, i.e. 1893. Good luck!
The envelope is addressed to JAMES F. HARTSHORN, JR. 444 Washington
Street,Boston, Mass. and was sent from B.W. ROWELL (previous address crossed
out was 44 KILBY STREET)...new address 28 SCHOOL STREET, BOSTON, MASS.
Inside is a 4 page program ...the front of which has a gold double headed
eagle with a crown...and reads Massachusetts Consistory S.P.R. S. 32 .
Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, US...Valley of Boston
