In 1791, President George Washington wrote to the officers of St. Andrew's Lodge at Newport, Rhode Island: "Being persuaded a just application of the principles on which Free Masonry is founded, must be promotive of virtue and public prosperity, I shall always be glad to advance the interests of this Society and be considered by them a deserving brother."
