THE FUNDAMENTAL PHILOSOPHIC SECRETS WITHIN MASONRY
By W. L. WILMSHURST, P.M. 275, P.P.G.Reg. West Yorks.
“We are to speak of the fundamental philosophic secrets concealed within the Masonic system. These our system declares to be many and invaluable and to be kept by Masons in their hearts. They are therefore obviously to be distinguished from the merely formal secrets imparted ceremonially, which are kept in the head and are neither many nor of any value, though (as we shall see) they are deeply significant.”
