The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 8

"Exhibit C." — I. O. O. F

"Exhibit C."

I. O. O. F.


To John B. Harmon, Esq.,

R. W. Deputy Grand Sire, G. L. of U. S.:

Dear Sir and Brother,—We cannot suffer you to depart from our shores without a formal expression of those feelings which we believe you must often have read in our hearts during the past few weeks. Never will the memory of your affectionate and eloquent words be obliterated from our minds. Your presence amongst us has wrought a work that will produce fruit a hundredfold, not merely in the present generation of Odd Fellows, but in that brilliant future which, we trust, is destined to be achieved by means of that organization which has been effected in so admirable a manner through your instrumentality. May Heaven's protecting hand guide and guard you to the home of your love! Tell your fellow-workers in the great cause how much we thank them for having sent us so able an ambassador; and tell your deal wife and children that you found a host of men in Australia whose hearts have throbbed with love because they were privileged to hail you as a brother. Farewell!

On Behalf of the Brotherhood in Australia.

W. Stirling, Grand Sire of Grand Lodge of Australasia.

W. Gane, Grand Master of Grand Lodge of Australia.
