"Washington as a Master Mason"

The caption on this 1870 engraving describes George Washington as: "Presiding over a meeting of the Lodge at Alexandria Va. (of which he was a member) convened preparatory to the laying of the Corner Stone of the National Capitol by him on the 18th of September 1793. The furniture of the Lodge which with the Gavel and Regalia used by Washington has been carefully preserved, is here reproduced as they appeared on that occasion. The Apron was embroidered and presented to Washington by the Marchioness de Lafayette.
