Alex Va Mar. 6/76
Approve and respectfully
forward to the Most
Wor. Grand Master
After due consideration
conclude that the forma-
tion of a lodge at Clifton
“Will not materially affect
the peace and prosperity of
any existing Lodge” –
There are living in
proximity around
Clifton a considerable
number of Masons who
owing to the inconvinces
& expenses, can rarely
attend other lodges at Fairfax
CH, nor can they for the same
reason attend Manasseh Lodge
& for the convenience of their
brethren and my belief in their
ability to build up a flourishing
Lodge finds pleasure in referring
this new application
