Brother Commander John E. Otterstedt, 32°, Knight Commander of the Court of Honor has Passed.

534

Brethren,
The roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason, Brother Commander John E. Otterstedt, 32°, Knight Commander of the Court of Honor, has not answered to his name. He has laid down the working tools of life and with them has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use. His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluity of life, thereby fitting his mind as a living stone for that spiritual building, that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has been granted admission to the Celestial Lodge above. His Brethren mourn the passing of a great man and Mason.
