that if they would let the build
ing be used for a meeting place
for the Masonic lodge, which at
that time had no regular place
to meet, they would give them a
block of ground. This the Bap
tists readily agreed to -do. and It
was so recorded in the deed.
Later Mr. Hobson laid the cor
ner stone ' for the Methodist
