Typed letter signed from Quatuor Coronati Lodge to Bro. Berolzheimer

Typed letter signed from Quatuor Coronati Lodge to Bro. Berolzheimer

London: 1931. A typed letter dated 10 Jan 1931 on Quatuor Cornati Lodge letterhead to a Br. Berolzheimer. The Lodge, founded in London in 1886 called itself the premier lodge for Masonic research. Berolzheimer is likely D.D. Berolzheimer, who published in the Freemason journal The Builder. The letter discusses the custom of "firing glasses," saying that the term was derived from the old practice of firing salutes of guns after toasts, referencing a passage from Hamlet. The special glasses were used to bang on the table to replicate gun fire. The signature of the writer is not legible - the last name may be Wilber. Creases where folded and glue remnants on back otherwise very good. AUTO/042914.
