      Excerpt


      If it be asked for what good are the Superior Degrees cultivated we might answer, that as to personal benefits, the Opportunity to do good and communicate, to practise all the Masonic virtues, as well as enjoy all the pleasures of fellowship 'and sociality — so far as these are considered within the sphere of the Masonic acquirements of any Brother — the original working degrees of Ancient Craft Masonry will for him suffice. Only to one who wishes to attain a more exten sive knowledge of, and become fully accomplished in, the religious, phiiosophic, and chivalric departments of our Order, as they were cultivated in the different ages of the world gone by, as well as at the present day, would we recommend initiation into the higher degrees. He only will be competent to appreciate the honors and privileges attached to them who possesses the disposition and ability to study the deeper and higher Mysteries of our Kabala, and will not rest satisfied until he has discovered a satisfactory solution to every Masonic problem, and can in every case explain, de qua fabulum nar ratur, who can thoroughly understand the moral mysteries, as well as those of art and science, which our legends unfold, and who has a laudable ambition to participate in the most exalted sphere, with congenial associates, in that subtle communion and fraternization which genuine Sublime Freemasonry' is peculiarly calculated to afford. — The Freemasons' Quarterly Magazine.
