To whom it may concern! I am a Mason since 1957. I decided to become
seek membership in the Masonic Fraternity for three very good
reasons. First, my father, though not a Mason always spoke well of the
Lodge based on what he saw in men he believed to be Masons. Secondly, as
a young man I noticed that many of the leaders in my church wore a funny
little pin in the lapel of their suit coat. I asked one what that pin
was and was told it was a Masonic pin. Then when finished by theological
education and was ordained in the ministry and received a call to my
first parish I saw that same little pin or a ring with the Square and
Compass worn by many, if fact most of the leaders of my
conggregation. It was then that I decided I would like to identify with
that organization that provided so much of the leadership in my home
church, Zion Reformed Church, Pottstown, Pennsylvania and then in the
churches I served in Northern Berks County in Southeast Pennsylvania,
i.e., St. Luke's Reformed Church, Shoemakersville and St. Michael's
Reformed Church, Hamburg, Pennsylvania. I am William E. Harner,
