PREFACE TO FIFTH EDITION.

early demand for the Fifth Edition of S
HIBBOLETH
, a demand the publishers scarcelyanticipated in times like these, affords the author an opportunity to add several importantmatters to the volume, thus rendering it still more valuable to the Order of the Temple. Sofar as now seen this edition is a complete Monitor.
 
This edition contains all that appeared in the Fourth Edition, with a few errors corrected,and the Banners of Judah and Persia. There is also added a "Third Appendix," whichcontains directions for the Reception of Grand Officers; Hints to Eminent Commanders,and Rules of Order; Rituals for Divine Worship; Ritual of a Conclave of Sorrow; Ritualfor the Christmas Observance; a Form for Recorder's Minutes; an Arrangement of Asylum and Prelate's Hall; and some Hints on Templar Banquets.This Monitor reaches farther in its helpfulness than any that has been prepared heretofore.But it has not attempted to describe the Robes, and other equipments not universallyaccepted by the Order. Many requests have been made for the insertion of suchdescriptive matter, and the requests have been declined in the interests of peace. Such anattempt would develop acrimonious controversies.My thanks are due, and they are hereby returned to the Fratres all over the Union, fromMaine to Mexico, and the Atlantic to the Pacific, for the kind reception given the former editions of this Monitor, and for the many valuable hints received from all sources. It isthe author's sincere desire to make this volume complete in all respects, and he will still be grateful for all suggestions looking to such completeness.

Only a few days later he was forced by disease to thechamber of death, which he never again left until the end came.The expression of his thanks in the last paragraph may therefore be taken as his lovingfarewell to his brethren; and it is believed that his earnest desire to provide a Monitor thatshould be complete and helpful to the members of the Order has been fully realized inthis new edition of S
