AN ACCOUNT OF SHAKESPEARE LODGE, No. 426.
From its foundation in 1835 to 1895, and of the old Furniture belonging to it.
By Bro. J. Jarvis Rainey, P.M. 426, P.Z. 712.
Bro. Rainey also exhibited the sword....
The sword used by the Inner Guard is of blued steel, and bears the figure of Shakespeare, his crest and coat of arms, together with about twenty Masonic emblems in gilt, and the number 492, and no doubt was purchased by the Shakespeare Lodge No. 492, when meeting at St. George’s Tavern or at Shakespeare Tavern, Birmingham.
