 THE BUILDERSA Story and Study of Masonryby Joseph Fort Newton, Litt. D.GRAND LODGE OF IOWANEWYORKGEORGE H. DORAN COMPANYWhen I was King and a Mason -A master proved and skilled,I cleared me ground for a palaceSuch as a King should build.I decreed and cut down to my levels,Presently, under the silt,I came on the wreck of a placeSuch as a King had built.-- KiplingCOPYRIGHT 1914BY JOSEPH FORT NEWTON
 FOREWORD M. S. A. EDITIONAlmost ten years have come and gone since this little book began its labors as aWorkman on the Temple, and it is still busy, telling its story in different lands andlanguages. An edition is soon to appear in the Syrian tongue in Damascus, the oldestcity in the world. It is here placed in the M. S. A. National Library, in order to have itspart and do its work in the greatest co-operative undertaking in the history of American Masonry.Oddly enough, The Builders has made its own way, unhelped by advertising orreview, by virtue of its own spirit and purpose. Aside from a kindly greeting byArthur Edward Waite in London, and another in the Masonic News of Detroit, it hashad no special notice. None the less, by using the old Masonic method, "from mouthto ear," it has passed through more than forty editions. Brethren read it, liked it, andpassed the word along; and so it has journeyed from land to land, weaving a web of goodwill.
 THE BUILDERSSuch a ministry makes the author hoth humble and happy, the more because he hasbeen able to do somewhat in the service of our ancient and noble Craft, whosemission it is to do good, only good, always, and everywhere - Love its spirit, Truth itspower, Fellowship its genius, since no one can learn the highest truth for another, andno one can learn it alone. "We must all hope much from the gradual progress of Brotherly Love;" and let him that hath that hope in him purify his heart.From the silence of TimeTime's silence borrow;In the heart of todayLies the world of to-morrow;And the builders of joyAre the children of sorrow.-J. F. N.CHURCH OF THE DEVINE PATERNITYNew York City, January 1, 1924
