Order of Mechanics, Friendly Society

he Independent United Order of Mechanics, Friendly Society is among the most ancient of the great fraternal Orders. It is to be found throughout the civilized world. It numbers among its members persons who occupy some of the highest positions in all branches of government. It makes its appeal not only to the opulent and powerful, but to all those who are physically and morally sound, to the end that it may carry out those humane principles of Charity and Benevolence, not only among its initiates, who are banded together by those solemn and indissoluble ties which are the characteristics of the Order, but that through them it may be instrumental in spreading to society at large the true meaning of Fidelity, Benevolence and Truth.

    No agency for good that has yet been evolved by human mind has been so potent a factor in alleviating the sufferings of mankind, and in bringing us into closer relationship and a more perfect understanding of our oneness of interest. This is true whether the Society be one of great antiquity and surrounded with ancient rites, ceremonies and secrecy, or one of the numerous benevolent and friendly societies that are to be found in any clime where the veil of night and darkness has been penetrated by the refulgent rays of civilization.

Guyana Order of Mechanics

    For, underlying all forms, ceremonies and usages, disregarding the countries where found and the peoples by whom they are practiced, is the desire to promote Honor, Justice, Chastity, Philanthropy, Patriotism and Industry, and, in so far as it can be effected by the power of organization, to promote those pure and lofty principles which are in the interest of humanity; and to develop the intellectual, moral and spiritual character, not alone of its votaries, but of mankind in general.
