Masonic Service Association – Short Talk Bulletin – February 1947
Freemasonry uses many common English words in a sense other than that of their usual definition -profane, heal, carpet, accepted, landmark, etc.
For the benefit of the new Mason – and perhaps for some who are older but less attentive to Masonic instruction than they might be – herewith are one hundred words commonly used in Freemasonry with a short definition of their Masonic significance.
ACACIA. An Eastern plant, sometimes a tree. Several hundred varieties are known. Masonically, an emblem of immortality.
