Lodge St. Andrew #518

The Masonic Deck Of Cards

One evening at a meeting a Brother was seen with a pack of playing cards in the Lodge. When the matter was reported to the RWM he summoned the brother concerned and demanded an explanation. The brother was taken aback and somewhat embarrassed but went on to explain thus:

"RWM I was not using these playing cards in an un-Masonic manner, for I regard them as my ritual and almanac, you see when I look at:

That RWM is my explanation of my behaviour of playing with a deck of cards in open lodge".

The RWM admonished the brother.
