A web site is a reasonable way to make often-copied papers available. If you are curious about Masonic involvement in Mexican and to some extent, U.S. history, I hope these papers will be helpful. I will recommend other web sites and some recent books. Eventually, I hope to have my thesis translated and available, "The Cross and the Compass: Bringing Religious Tolerance to Mexico."
