In the year 1832 there arrived in the city of New York the Count de St. Laurent. He was a member of the Supreme Council of France and grand Commander (ad vitam) of the Supreme Council 33 for Terra Firma, New Spain, South America, Puerto Rico, Canary Islands etc. He found the old council sleeping in consequences of political and anti-masonic troubles existing at that time. This lecture discusses his role in resuscitating that Council and many of the mysteries connected to him as he introduced Scottish rite to African American Masons.
