I have made some minor corrections to the text, but there is one that has eluded me. The text refers to the "three most universal Degrees " This cannot be correct: either they are universal or they are not. Are they universal? Or are they all-but-universal, or are they simply the three most common? --Martin Wyatt 19:14, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Can't help with that, I'm afraid. A couple of other thoughts that occur to me.
The list of famous masons is a bit short. I read somewhere (not a reliable source) that 53 of the 56 signatories of the US Declaration of Independence were masons. If thrue, that would add a fair few.
Never heard of female masons before. When a Commons committee held an investigation into them not too many years ago it was clearly implied there were none then, but the world is changing increasingly fast. Peter Jackson 10:06, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
