Lodge of Amity

desert-thumb.jpgFrom Lodge of Amity by Norris F. Schneider:

Abel Lewis became a Mason in White Horse Lodge No. 50 in Pennsylvania and worked as a visitor at American Union Lodge before coming to Zanesville. He was the first clerk of the court of common pleas in Muskingum County and postmaster of Zanesville in 1805. He became insane in 1813 and was supported by his Masonic brethren in the county jail until he escaped in 1826. He was never heard from again.

Ilove that... "he became insane." Makes it all sound so.. casual somehow. Like he became a Mormon, or he became a nudist.

I find it curious that Bryce relates insanity with Mormons and nudists. Being both a Mormon and a nudist, I'm wondering how he connects them both with insanity.
