1920 February 2-4.
|Main Creator:||Campbell, Henry, Sir, 1856-1924|
The signatories consider the "Sword and Mace" to be "relics of barbarism, and, originating in the desire of tyrannical monarchs to parade their power before the eyes of subject people, their exhibition at the meetings of this Corporation is a perpetual symbol of servitude to the English Crown".
