Acrostic - George Washington

Author Unknown

G reat patron of our noble art divine,
E xtend thy all enliv'ning orient ray,
O n Masonry with ardent lustre shine,
R efulgent shineand usher in new day
G reat architect, bright morning star of fame,
E ach Mason glories in his patrons name.

W hat's great and good, and beautiful to see,
A re all compriz'd, and to be found in thee
S tatesman, hero, patriot, brother dear,
H umane, benevolent, just and sincere
I ntrepid soldier, guardian of our land,
N e'er let us fall beneath oppressor's hand,
G ently lead and guide us on to fame,
T hat we may stand recorded with thy name
O n Mason's hearts thy name shall stand secure,
N or be forgot while Masonry endures.

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!

My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.

Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!

Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
