The independent Order of Odd Fellows, founded on this continent in 1819 and now in active operation in most of the civilized nations of the world, has, by reason of its marvelous growth, naturally attracted a widespread attention....The principles of Odd Fellowship are those of religion and humanity; its object is to promote the general good of mankind and to spread abroad the light of morality.....Our secrecy consists merely of the tie that binds us together in an indissoluble brotherhood. It prompts us to deeds of brotherly love and benevolence because it recognizes each as a member of one universal family....
