Volume II

Jewels of Masonic Eloquence

by Clifford O. Fritz and Charles N. Harmon

With its verbose subtitle “True Stories of Mercy and Assistance at ‘Distress Signal’ and Reasons for the Roman Catholic Church’s Fight on Masonry and History of the Wonderful Part Played by Masons in National Affairs, Selected from every American State, Europe, Asia and Africa,” this 350 page collection of over 200 items was originally published in 1915 by the Masonic Research Society of Enid, Oklahoma.  In 1972 the Oklahoma Lodge of Research republished it as its second Volume with the stated desire “to preserve an element of the literary and oratorical grandeur and style of an era long since vanished from the American scene.”
