CHAPTER X.

Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. ON the 24th of June, 1734, upon the petition of several brethren residing in Philadelphia, a warrant of constitution was granted by the grand lodge of Boston, for holding a lodge in that place; appointing the Right Worshipful Benjamin Franklin their first master; which is the beginning of masonry in Pennsylvania.

The grand lodge of England granted a grand warrant, bearing date the 20th June, A. D. 1764, to the M. W. William Bell and others, authorising them to form and hold a grand lodge for the state of Pennsylvania.

The grand officers, together with the officers and representatives of a number of regular lodges under their jurisdiction, at a communication holden in the grand lodge room in the city of Philadelphia, on the 25th day of September, 1786, af ter mature and serious deliberation, unanimously resolved, “ That it is improper that the grand lodge of Pennsylvania should remain any longer under the authority of any foreign grand lodge.” And the said grand lodge did then close, sine die.

The grand convention thus assembled did then and there unanimously resolve, that the lodges under the jurisdiction of the grand lodge of Pennsylvania, aforesaid, lately holden as a provincial grand lodge, under the authority of the grand lodge of England, should, and they did, form themselves into a grand lodge, to be called, “The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, and masonic jr. risdiction thereunto belonging,” to be held in the said city of Philadelphia.
