Hilton Masonic Lodge No. 1143 (IL)
One week prior to my scheduled "Honeymoon Holiday" to Edinburgh Scotland I received notice from the Grand Lodge of Scotland; they had located a lodge that would be having a meeting during our visit. I had already spoken to Illinois. Grand Lodge and had an official document to present, however I sent the information to Grand Lodge just to make sure. My contact in Scotland was Bob Cooper, curator of the Scotland Grand Lodge Museum. He instructed me to visit Freemasons Hall early on Thursday and they would have all the information assembled for me. I had no idea at this time what I was about to enter into.
