Signed in print by Thomas Mathews (Grand Master), Robert Brooke (Senior Grand Warden), and William Bentley (Junior Grand Warden), with James Henderson (Grand Secretary) attesting to text's accuracy, after having destroyed a previously a flawed edition of this work (1790.040). Herein, the Grand Lodge endorsed the New Ahiman Rezon, a Masonic handbook, composed by John K. Read and published the preceding fall (1791.019). Sheet lacks printer credit; typography matches that of other Masonic imprints issued from the press of John Dixon Jr., who produced the work endorsed here; Dixon served, in effect, as the Grand Lodge's printer of record until his death in 1805.
