Re: Sinclair & Masons intertwined

You are most likely correct in suggesting that the discussion list would
be swamped with the information about masons and there is more of it than
any list can cope with. (as you rightly point out much of it is either
not understood or misunderstood) , but conversely many list members are
also not aware of the close connection between the Masons of Scotland and
the Sinclair History and one can not really segregate one from the other
and do justice to the social history of Sinclairs. Not only were the
Sinclair's involved but they rose over the generations to the positions
of Grand Master in Scotland. There is one rather good published
authority on this topic and I will endeavour to get it identified later
this week for such as would find this exploration useful. Now for
our friend this may not assist him much because this historical
connection is well known and documented elsewhere on sites relating to
the topic. I for one was not aware of Masonic symbols in Roslin until I
watched the film on the chapel, nor was I aware of the existance of a
fine library on the subject matter at a notable library at Nosshead. The
more we learn and think we know the more we don't really know.
All the best.
Toronto, PEI and forever Argyll
I have asked Kenneth to let me have his postal address so that I
can send him a copy of "The Templar
Legacy and Masonic Inheritance within Rosslyn Chapel".
And, if you will let me have your postal address, I will send you a copy
of "The Hereditary Protectorate"
about the Sinclairs being the hereditary patrons of the Crafts and Guilds
of Scotland and also about
Sir William Sinclair resigning this position only to be elected to that
position by a free vote.
Thank you for sending your piece on the Sinclairs of Argyll to the
Chief. He has just returned from a
strenuous journey to the States and may have some catching up to do
with affairs of state in this
country as he is still an active member of the House of Lords.
