"Curious Masonic Words"
The short talk Bulletin
The Masonic Service Associate of the Uniteed States
VOL. 31 August 1953 NO.8
Freemasonry has beny curiosities, and indeed, many mysteries as yet unsolved. Among the former are several often misunderstood words with odd or involved meaning. AHIMAN REZON is the title still used by South Carolina and Pennsyslvania for their Books of Law. It was used in years gone by also by Geogia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Maryland and Nova Scotia. It was the title given by Dermott to the BOok of constitutions of the Grand Lodge (Acients) of England. Presumably, the words had a Hebraic orgine, but no one has as yet settled on a translation so authoritative that are are satisfied. "Will of Selected Brethren" "Secrets of a Prepeared Brother", "Royal builder", "Brother Secretary", "Intimated Brother secretary", "A prepaired Brother", are all suggested meaning vy vaious schlars who adduce various Hebrew words and their compounds as possibilities for the meaning Dermott had in mind when he first used eht syllables as a title. Scholars also dispute the pronounciation. Ah-HIGH-mn REE-zon second syllable - - ReZON.

LEWIS is an iron tool inserted in a caity in a large stone, whcih expanding as it is pulled upwards, holds the weight of the sone firmly as it is swung through the air by a derrick to its position in the wall of a building. Bothe the term and the invention are very old. Pennsylvania used it as a sysmbol of strenght, but as such it is absend from the symbolism of other Grand Jurisdictions. Masonically, the work is universally used to denot the under-age son of a Freemason. Obviouisly, the term was so applied because the strength of a man's later years is in his sons, and the Lewis, in England as in Pennsylvania, is a symbol of strenth. In England, a dispensation may be obtained, permitting the initiation of a Lewis under twenty-one years of age. In Scotland, any Lewis may be initiated at eighteen. In North Dakota, a Lewis may apply to a lodge before he is twenty-one, but cannot be initiated until he has reached man's estate. The Classic istance of the Lewis being initiated in this country is George Washington, who was only twenty years and some months of are when be became an Entered Apprentice in "The Lodge at Fredericksburg" (Virginia), November 4. 1752. In France, the tem s not Lewis but louveteau, but has the same meaning.
