Delalande, Joseph Jerome

One of the most distinguished French astronomers of the eighteenth century. His name was Joseph Jrome Lefranais but when quite a young man he was received at the Court of King Frederic II he called himself Lefranais de la Lande, which has often been written as a surname Delalande and Lalande, the latter being used by his biographers Brother Louis Amiable. Delalande was born at Bourg-en-Bresse, France, July 11, 1732, and died at Paris, April 4, 1807. He founded a Lodge of the Sciences for uniting Freemasons especially devoted to scientific study and research. At the suggestion of Helvetius this scope was enlarged to those occupied with literature, science and the fine arts. The Lodge bore the name of the Nine Sisters, referring to the Muses, the Greek goddesses presiding over the arts and sciences. Of this Lodge Benjamin Franklin became Worshipful Masters Delalande was one of the founders of the Grand Orient of France and published. in 17~ n able memoir upon the History of Freemasonry, which was subsequently incorporated in the twentieth volume of the Encyclopedie Mthodique.

They sent me a email with tracking number, the gloves came one day ahead of scheduled delivery. And they don't sell IFAMM/ CLANDESTINE products. I highly recommend them.” Brother Walter Zelaya, Middle Island, NY
