Title translates as: " Table of Brothers Fraternal which comprise the French Provincial Lodge, under the distinctive title of Wisdom: at the Portsmouth Orient, in Virginia, a State in Northern America. In the era of the St. John, 5795" [i.e. 1795]. French Provincial freemasonry was rare in the United States, and the lodge in Portsmouth (an Orient) was evidently then the only one in Virginia; designed to serve traveling French traders and diplomats, such meetings answered to the Grand Orient of France in Paris.
