Excerpt: ...Provincial Grand Lodge of Canada West issued a circular, which could not have commended itself to brethren desirous of adhering closely to statements actually on record and stamped with the imprint of truth. No brother can justly appreciate the position occupied by the Grand Lodge in the early years of its career. No body of men ever deserved more kindly consideration at the hands of their brethren than those who manfully endeavored to free themselves from the triple bonds, which more than figuratively tightened as the efforts for freedom in Craft government were made. The first Annual Communication was held in the Masonic Hall at Hamilton on the 9th July, 1856, in the hall on the south-west corner of Main and Hughson streets, in which the Convention had met in r855-Thirty-three lodges were represented, of which twenty-four were regularly warranted and eleven were under dispensation, five of the former and five of the latter being represented by proxy. Including the Grand Master and the Grand Tvler, there were fifty-one representatives present. Neither the Grand Master nor the Grand Tyler seems to have been taken into consideration by the Committee on Credentials: As this was the first annual Communication after reorganization, the names of those present and the lodges represented are given: GRAND OFFICERS.
