“There shall be the most perfect unity of obligation, of discipline, of working the Lodges, of making, passing, and raising, instructing, and clothing Brothers; so that but one pure unsullied system, according to the genuine LANDMARKS, laws, and traditions of the Craft, shall be maintained, upheld, and practised, throughout the Masonic world."-ARTICLES OF UNION.

"In the Grand Lodge resides the power of enacting laws and regulations for the government of the Craft, and of altering, repealing, and abrogating them, provided that they continue to preserve the ancient LANDMARKS of the Order." -CONSTITUTIONS.

“You faithfully promise to obey the original laws, charges, and regulations of this ancient and honourable Institution, and to preserve the ancient LANDMARKS of the Order to the utmost of your power.”'-LECTURES.
