An unrecorded African-American Masonic pocket book published for the Trinity Lodge of Little Rock, Arkansas. The work includes the original charter, the twenty articles comprising the organization's by-laws, and a roster of ninety-two members. This copy belonged to one of those members, M.B. Jeffries and contains five pages of his manuscript entries recording his monthly dues payments over the course of five years, from 1944-48. The manuscript entries include the dues amount, date of payment, as well as the signature or ink stamp of the officials who accepted Jeffries' payments. Following the title page are two full-page photographic portraits, featuring the club's master J.H. Kennedy and secretary E.A. Stevenson, both also listed in the lodge roster. No copies in OCLC.
