The number of Lodges in Algeria is, in comparison with the size of the State, quite large. Several are controlled by the Grand Lodge of France and many more are under the Grand Orient of that country, the Grand Orient having organized Blisaire Lodge at Alger on March 1, 1832, and Hippone Lodge at Bone on July 13, 1832.
ALINCOURT, FRANOIS D'
A French gentleman, who, in the year 1776, was sent with Don Oyres de Ornellas Praao, a Portuguese nobleman, to prison, by the governor of the island of Madeira, for being Freemasons. They were afterward sent to Lisbon, and confined in a common jail for fourteen months, where they would have perished had not the Freemasons of Lisbon supported them, through whose intercession , with Don Martinio de Mello they were at last released (see Captain George Smith's Use and Abuse of Freemasonry, page 206).
