THE BUILDERS

A STORY AND STUDY
OF MASONRY
BY

JOSEPH FORT NEWTON, LITT. D.

GRAND LODGE OF IOWA
When I was a King and a Mason--
  A master Proved and skilled,
I cleared me ground for a palace
  Such as a King should build.
I decreed and cut down to my levels,
  Presently, under the silt,
I came on the wreck of a Palace
  Such as a King had built!
