[Boston, MA]: Boston Masonic Mirror, [1831]. Broadside, 50 cm. x 34 cm. Trimmed close all around. An extraordinary publication, requiring considerable personal courage. Signed in type by over 1500 Massachusetts Masons, many of whom must have been exceedingly reluctant since Morgan's murder in 1827 to be publicly identified as Masons. Declares that the time has come, five years after actions committed by Masons in a sister state had brought the fraternity to disrepute, to publicly deny accusations that Freemasonry condones immoral principles or behavior, as much written for the fraternity as for the public at large, urging Masons to remain firm, even should "the people of this country become so infatuated as to deprive Masons of their civil rights...".
