On Wednesday, 1st December, 1813, an Ode was performed at Freemasons' Hall, 
for the Installation of His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent and Strathern, as
Grand Master of Masons in England, according to the old institution. The Ode
recited by brother Pope; the music composed by brother Kelly. The military
band of His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent, who were Masons, attended;
together with several eminent professional singers; and the whole formed a
grand coup d'oeil. Brother Bellamy sang the following song with great animation,
and it was received with unanimous applause:
"Mountains may fall, and rocks decay,
And isle on isle be swept away,
But Masonry's primeval truth,
Unbroke by force, unchanged by time,
Shall bloom in renovated youth,
And energy sublime."
The following duet met with the same meal of approbation : 
"For see! from Heaven the peaceful dove 
With olive branch descend;
Augustus shall with Edward join,
All rivalry to end;
And taught by their fraternal love,
Our arms, our hearts shall intertwine.
The union to approve,

"Then Edward and Augustus hail !
For now beneath the Brunswick line,
One system shall prevail ;
O'er all the earth, with truths divine,
Shall Masonry extend its sway,
Till time itself shall pass away
In unity to shine."
FULL CHORUS. 
"Then, brothers, hail the kind decree 
That gave them both to Masonry."
