    Message:: Dear Brothers, I am an American living in Mexico. I am working in a Spanish Speaking Lodge, although my Spanish isn't that good. I am having a very hard time finding information in English to prepare my works. I am looking for information about the York Rite, working tools of the Apprentice and Fellow Craft, and Symbolism. If any brother could send me works or info, I will very happily return works that I have done or perhaps other info I have been able to find. Could anyone send me copies of the Masonic Short Talk Buletins? It's not that I'm too cheap to order them from the Masonic Services Org. It's that it's difficult to order and pay for them from here in Mexico. Also the Mail service here is quite poor and things tend to get lost in the mail frequently. I have been able to down load many from different site on the web and as I slowly get them translated, they are bringing more light to my Spanish speaking brothers. Thank you, Jack

    RQFC-topic: Mark Degree as worked in CRAFT lodges
    Message:: Mark degree almost identical to that worked in Royal arch Chapter is worked as a supplementary part of 2nd degree (but on Master masons only) in lodges under the GL of scotland. Is tis done in any other grand lodge?
    [web-editor's note:: I have heard this before, but for the life of me cannot figure out this stuff about part of the 2nd degree being done on Master Masons only. How, for instance, does someone get through the 2nd degree the first time, if they can only take part of it as a Master Mason, which they can't be if they haven't taken the 2nd degree yet. I will gratefully accept and publish on this site the clearest explanation I receive of this conundrum.]
