This trowel has an ivory handle and
sterling silver blade. It measures
9 1/2 X 3 inches.
The Trowel is an instrument made use
of by Operative Masons to spread the cement which unites the building into one
common mass; but we as Free & Accepted Masons are taught to use it for the more
noble and glorious purpose of spreading the cement of Brotherly Love and
Affection; that cement which unites us into one common band, or society of
friends and brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble
contention, or rather emulation, of who best can work and best agree.
