In pursuance of a call, issued and endorsed by several Grand Chapters, a convention of repre- sentatives was held at Indianapolis, Indiana, November 16th, , and the General Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, was organ- ized. A Ritual Committee was appointed, and in the General Grand Chapter adopted the work, and it was published by its authority. At the ses- sion in , a committee on Ritual was appointed, with instructions to receive all proper amend- ments, and report the same at the next meeting. In , the Committee was continued.
When the time arrives to open the Chapter meeting, the Worthy Matron or Worthy Patron comes to the East or place called the East and sounds the gavel which calls the Chapter to order. Then the 17 remaining officers are asked to go outside and march in. If all of the 17 officers are not present, the Matron may appoint other persons who are present to take their place, or may proceed with those present. The Officers line up in two lines, behind the Conductress and another line behind the place for the Associate Conductress, who stays in the Chapter room until instructed to go out to bring the officers in. The Worthy Patron or member acting for him, sounds the gavel three times, calls everyone up, then asks the Associate Conductress to go outside and bring the Officers in. The Associate Conductress goes out, takes her place in line opposite the Conductress; all march in, two lines side-by-side to a suitable song. The Conductress goes down the center to get the Worthy Matron and escorts her to the East.
Believing that there are equal grounds of stability in the system of the Order of the Eastern Star, the present Ritual is presented. In this pleasant labor I have had.

HAVING been engaged for a number of years in disseminating the beautiful Order of the East- ern Star, and believing that the system is fast becom- ing deeply rooted in the affections of the Masonic Craft and their female relatives, and the belief pre- vails that the time is not far distant when this sys- tem of the Adoptive Rite will receive Masonic official recognition, and meet with general acceptance, even where it is now neglected or proscribed. These, and other good reasons, have been the inducements for producing this volume upon the plan now offered. The want of some systematic organization has been the leading cause of retarding its general usefulness for many years, and it may be set down as an axiom, that no degree, however remotely connected with any in- stitution, can take a high place among us, unless it possess a well-conceived and philosophic basis of ceremonial, symbolism, and constitutional regulation. Without these it is subject to constant changes from a multiplicity of minds, which tend to destroy its universality, and give its opponents just grounds for their cavilings.
