“If it were to be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last. … A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.” –Alexander Hamilton, Essay in the American Daily Advertiser, 1794

They possess, too, the immediate administration of justice in all cases, civil and criminal, which concern the property, personal rights, and peaceful pursuits of their own citizens.” –Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

Area 2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

Looking deep into my Inbox, I’ve come across a number of scans from Mark Eddy relating to Central NY and Area 2G and its successors.

One of the items in the email was an image of what he advises is the 1956 Area 2-G Conclave Neckerchief. HE advises this has been confirmed to him by an old Lodge and Area Chief.

2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

The neckerchief looks like it has an error which was likely never corrected. You can see the pocket patch shown below.

You can see that this conclave was called the Area 2G Third Conference and the neckerchief is screened with Area 2 & 3 Conference. It looks like the & replaces the G and there is a large gap between the 3 and Conference which could have been intended as 3rd.

Historically Area 2-G issued a pocket patch and a neckerchief for each conclave during this decade.

What do you think?

You can find links to other New York Area Conclave issues on this page.
