Excerpt from Freemasonry Its Symbolism, Religious Nature, and Law of Perfection

Worthy of translation into French, German, or any other language - no modification whatever would be needed. I have written as a Christian, and perhaps, therefore, the work may be deemed more suitable to Freemasons who are Christians than to those of other religions. It would have been wrong, and contrary to the laws of Christianity and of Freemasonry, for me to disguise or conceal my religious sentiments. And whilst Freemasonry delights in opening its portals to all - whatever their religious creed - who hold the great fundamental principles of religion already mentioned, yet, as it has for many ages prevailed chiefly amongst Christian nations, its teachings have been very largely imbued with Christianity, and very many symbols are in general use which admit of no explanation apart, from that religion and from the Holy Bible, which in Christian countries is placed upon the altar of every Lodge, read at every meeting, carried in every Masonic procession, and acknowledged as the Great Light of Freemasonry. If the present work, therefore, should be found more entirely suited to the views of Christian Freemasons than of others, I entertain a perfect confidence that it contains nothing which any Brother - Jew, Mahommedan, or Parsee - can deem offensive. In conclusion, I beg leave to state that I have bestowed much study on the subjects treated of in this work. I do not lay before my readers hastily formed opinions; and I hope, therefore, that many may derive pleasure, and that many may derive instruction from these pages. It would be most gratifying to know, and a sufficient reward for much labour, that the work was generally found acceptable by my Brethren, and that it was extensively useful but I would feel much satisfaction in the thought that I had been able to contribute to the gratification, or the more substantial benefit, even of a single Brother.
