Description

In this letter to Grand Secretary Armand P. Pfister of Alabama, Philip Swigert, Grand Secretary for the Grand Lodge of Kentucky, declines Pfister’s request for a copy of the Grand Council of Kentucky's constitution. A fire, which had destroyed the Grand Lodge of Kentucky in 1837, also destroyed all copies of the constitution, save one.
