We the undersigned, being regular registered Masons of the Lodges mentioned against our respective names having the prosperity of the craft at heart and are anxious to exert our best endeavours to promote and diffuse the genuine principles of the art, and for the convenience of our respective dwellings and other good reasons, we are desirous of forming a new Lodge to be named The Royal St Edmunds. In consequence of this desire, we pray for a warrant of Constitution empowering us to meet as a regular Lodge at Bury St Edmunds at the One Bell Hotel on the fourth Monday of every month and there to discharge the forms of the order and the laws of Grand Lodge.
