GENERAL AND COMPLETE LIBRARY:
FOR APRIL 1795.
THE following ADDRESS to His Royal Highness the Prince OF
Wales was resolved on by the GRAND Lodge held on Wednesday the 15th Day of April 1795, and presented by the Right Hon. tbe EARL OF MOIRA, A. G. M.
TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS,
UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OF ENGLAND,
MOST WORSHIPFUL AND ROYAL GRAND MASTER,
ON an 'event so important to your own happiness and to the
interests of the British Empire as the late nuptials of Your Royal Highness, we feel ourselves peculiarly bound to testify our joy, and to offer our humble congratulations.
To affect a degree of gratification superior to that professed by others, when all His Majesty's subjects exhibit such heartfelt satis faction at the union which you have formed, would, perhaps, be in us an undue pretension. We cannot, however, but be proudly conscious, Sir, that we possess a title beyond what any other class of men can advance to approach you, upon an occasion like the present, with a tender of our particular duty. When Your Royal Highness deigned so far to honour the Craft'as to accept the trust of presiding over us, the condescension not only authorised but demanded from all and each of us a peculiar sensibility to whatever might concern your welfare: and the ties of Brotherhood with which you invested yourself in becoming one of our number, entitle us to express, without fear of incurring any charge of presumption, the satisfaction we feel at contemplating such an accession to the prospects of the nation, and to those of your own felicity.
That the interests of Your Royal Highness and those of the British people may ever continue as strictly united as we feel them in this most auspicious occurrence, is the warmest wish of those who hold it the highest honour to have your name enrolled in the records of their Institution.
To the obligations which the Brethren already owe to you, Sir, it will be a material addition if you will render acceptable to your Royal Consort the humble homage of our veneration, and of our prayers for every possible blessing upon your union.
RUDENCE is the art of chusing; and Johnson defines it to be,
Wisdom applied to Practice. A person is prudent, when among several objects he knows how to distinguish that which merits the preference. Now prudence has a twofold ofiice: it instructs the understanding, and regulates the will; it determines us in regard to speculative as well as practical maxims.
By prudence the mind is kept upon its guard against prejudice and precipitation. Guided by this sage Minerva, she gives to those doga mas that are proposed to her, an assent proportioned to their degree
