CONCERNING THE BEHAVIOR OF FREE MASONS

AS MEMBERS OF A LODGE

II.—Of Working

Every Free Mason should work hard and honestly on working days, that he may live reputably and appear in a decent and becoming manner on holidays. The working hours appointed by law, or confirmed by custom, are to be strictly observed under such penalties and fines as may be established.

Free Masons should perform their duty without murmuring or mutiny, nor leave the Lodge until the labor is finished. They must avoid all unbecoming modes of expression, and call each other Brother, both within and without the Lodge. They must instruct the younger brethren to become bright and expert workmen, that the materials for the edifice may not be spoiled. But they must be careful that they do not allow cowans to with them, that their arts and mysteries my not be unlawfully obtained. Ahiman Rezon, 2012, p. 181.
