PUBLISHER
S
PREFACE
Had
not
an
extendcd
trial
demonstrated mostclearly
that
in
no way
canthe
arguments
against
a
secret order
be
put
before
the
public
so effectively as
in
close
connection
with
the
ritual
thereof,
I
shouldnot
have ventured
the
great
expenseof 
publishing
this
Illustrated Ritual
of 
the
Scottish
Rite.
 Rituals
sell
readily
to
both
lodge
members
and out-
alders,
while
the
most eloquent address
on
the
subject,
however
repletewith
important
facts and
argument.,
seldom
secures
many
readers.
Although many
members
of 
any
secret
society
woulddecidedly
prefer
to
have
theanalysis
of 
thedegrees
leftout, and
I
have
declined repeated
offers
to
buy
enti.c
editions
of 
one
thousand
copies
of 
different
rituals
at
my
regular rates,
provided
I
would
furnish them
with
-
out note
or
comment, not
less
than
half 
of 
my
sales of 
rituals
are
to
members
of these
orders, and
hundreds,
when
ordering
a
ritual,
are
careful
to
give
their
lodge
connections,
supposing they could
not
otherwise get
the
desired’
ritual.
Before
I
commenced
publishing
this
series
of 
rituals,with
foot-notequotations,
which,
it
will
be
observed,prove
the
substantial
correctness
of 
the
ritual and
form

a
skeleton
exposition
of 
the
degrees,
many
members
of 
these
orders,
when purchasing rituals, took pains
to
intimate
or pronounce
them incorrect.Whea
they
see
that the
foot-note
quotations from
the
standard
authorities
of 
the
order
prove
the correctness
of 
the
ritual,
and
form
a
skeleton exposition,
they
nat
-urally
consider
themselves
absolved
from
their oath
of secrecy,
and in
hundreds
of 
instances
frankly
admit
theaccuracy
of 
the
ritual,
even
without
theasking.The
substantial
correctness
of 
this
Scotch Rite
Ritualis
proved by extensive
foot-note
quotations
