In some of the old lectures of the eighteenth century this title is used as equivalent to Speculative Freemason. Thus they had the following catechism What do you learn by being a Gentleman Mason? Secrecy, Morality, and Good-Fellowship. What do you learn by being an Operative Mason? Hew, Square, Mould stone, lay a Level, and raise a Perpendicular. Hence we see that Gentleman Mason was in contrast with Operative Mason.

“I received my ring today! The transfer from USA to SA was a long process. Thank you for advising an international courier service rather than the regular postal services or I might still have been waiting :)
I would just like to thank you and the team at the Ashar Company for your absolute dedication to perfection. May I ask if the symbols etc on my ring were lazer cut? The detail is so intricate and fine.The quality is higher than I had expected. It truly is a work of art. And I shall wear it always, with pride.
Brother John, South Africa
