Subject: Help request re VSL's

Gary, can you help?

I'm sure I've seen a page somewhere detailing 7 or 8 religions, their VSL's and some important do's and don'ts. I thought it might even be on your site somewhere. Any thoughts?

Dear Steve,

There wasn't anything like that on my web-site, but when I got your letter I decided to have a look around.

I found something that might be what you're looking for. It originally appeared in The Beehive State Trestleboard, published Southern California Research Lodge, and since then has been re-printed in a few other places.

And now you can find it here, too: a survey of variations in Masonic custom and practice regarding the Volume of Sacred Law.
