Description:     

According to G. Oliver, Captain Smith was a man “plain in speech and manners, but honourable and upright in his dealings, and an active and zealous Mason”. In the late 18th century, G. Smith’s work was both necessary and useful although not sanctioned by the Grand Lodge. It informs on various aspects of Freemasonry, from history to philosophy. Two of its chapters are of particular interest, that of masonic charity, and that of a discussion on women and masonry. Finally, this book is of interest as it is one of the publications for which written documentation exist in terms of the mechanism of Grand Lodge sanction of masonic literature.[1]

[1] See for example Masonic Review, 1856, 15:90 citing G. Oliver’s ‘Fire!—Captain G. Smith’ in The revolution of a square, 1855.
