The first degrees of the rite of perfection to be communicated in Savannah were on April 17,1796, when Jacobs conferred the degrees on James Clark, past master, Solomon's lodge NO. 1. F. & A. M. At Charleston, S. C., on May 31, 1801, the Supreme Council. 33°, (Mother Council of the World) of the A. & A. S. R., S. J., U. S. A., was established. On December 4, 1802, the Supreme Council, at Charleston issued a charter for the recently organized lodge of the perfection, 4°---14°, at Savannah, Georgia, and it was was delivered in Savannah on December 30, 1802. Extant records indicate beyond reasonable doubt that this was the first such charter issued outside of Charleston. Authorized and placed in 1969. Luther A. Smith, 33° Sovereign Grand Commander. John Fulton, 33° Sovereign Grand Inspector General. The Supreme Council. 33°, A. & A. S. R., S. J., U. S. A."
