“The mobs of the great cities add just so much to the support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” —Thomas Jefferson (1787)

An auction recently ended on eBay entitled : Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea LODGE 418 OA CANDIDATE LEATHER N/C SLIDE picturing the leather slide shown below. There was no indication that the slide was actually issued by Lodge #418.

I contacted Gavin M. a long time member of the lodge and who owned a complete Nick Stoner and Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418 collection. HE advised that he had nver seen that slide nor has any other 418 members he checked with.

Does anyone have any further information on this slide?
