Excerpt from The Symbol of Glory: Shewing the Object and End of Free Masonry

Having arrived at the age of nearly threescore years and ten, my labours in behalf of the beloved institution of Freemasonry must be considered as drawing to a close and I have therefore thought it a duty to open the pres ent volume with an Address to you, as a grateful return for the uniform courtesy which the Craft have testified towards me. These labours have not been actuated by motives of a pecuniary nature, for I have derived very little profit from my masonic publications and my chief reward has been in the kindness and attention which I have received from the fraternity at large. I have never been troubled with an ambition to accumulate riches; nor have I ever been overburdened with wealth, or greatly inconvenienced by its absence.

Man wants but little here below, Nor wants that little long.

To secure your approbation has been my chief aim, and the possession of it constitutes the utmost limit of my ambition.

The elements of a general address are so diversified, that the canon proposed by Churchill, however it might fail in a formal treatise, will apply excellently well here.

This I hold, A secret worth its weight in gold, To those who write as I write now, Not to mind where they go, or how, Through ditch, through bog, o'er hedge and stile, Make it but worth the reader's while; And keep a passage fair and plain Always to bring him back again.
