"TEACHINGS of Our Ark of the Covenant"

Titled "Teaching: Our Ark of the Covenant". Outlines the "Ark of Our Covenant" that Klanspeople have entered into, which contains: (1) The Bible, "The symbol of, and foundation of, all our liberties. Take the Bible out of Anglo-Saxon civilization and we are ruined. The Bible is the Magna Charta of our civilization. We solemnly resolve to keep it so -to keep it both in all our public schools and homes. We warn all papists and aliens to keep unholy hands off the bible. This is no maudling sentiment. We mean just that. We acknowledge the Bible as God's gift to men and as the source of all our light and life"; (2) The Flag, "The fled is the symbol of British idealism, of British unity, of British life, is the symbol of that which separates and differentiates us from all the other nations and peoples of the earth. It is an expression of Anglo-Saxon, historical achievement and is, therefore, sacred to us. Unholy, alien hands must be kept off that flag and all it represents. The Anglo-Saxon race is essentially, racially, and fundamentally Protestant. Hence, the Flag must express, and does express, the Protestant spirit and viewpoint of life"; (3) The Sword, "The sword is a symbol of defense. If there are ten million Klansmen in the world, then ten million swords will leap from their scabbards in defense of Anglo-Saxon, Protestant institutions. The Klan as an organization is set up to save the World from the sword, for if we do not settle these great problems by intelligent discussion and exchange of ideas, they will be settled by our children with the sword"; (4) The Water, "dedication fluid, is symbolic of Klannishness. In the exercise of an honourable Klannishness we propose to solve many of our problems. We are covenanted together to practice four kinds of Klannishness (a) socially (b) physically (c) morally (d) vocationally. This covers the whole round of our lives. [...] We must practise Klannishness -we must be true to our covenant. A member of this Order who refuses to practice Klannishness thereby proves his unworthiness and makes his advancement in Klancraft impossible. This is the acid test to be applied to each member"; (5) The Fiery Cross, "both a holy symbol and a positive challenge. The Cross is a symbol of "LIGHT" and "SACRIFICE". Our motto is "NONSILBA SED ANTHAR". We "serve" and "sacrifice" for the right. The Fiery Cross is a symbol of sacrifice for the right. It is a challenge to service. These were are sworn to protect with all they mean -the ideals, traditions, institutions and customs they represent"; Document signed by "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Kligrapp Lewis Fowler".

Addressed to "All Genii, Kind and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Citizens of the Invisible Empire, Knights (and Ladies) of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada"

Addressed to "my faithful and esteemed Klansmen and Klanswomen". In light of C. Fowler's messages, must now look to the more vital issues at hand. Reads, "…with upturned faces, written over with a deeper trust, with a kindlier eye, and a warmer beat of the heart, realizing as never before that in the Invisible Empire are the forces, the issues and the life that abides forever". Continues to quote Tennyson, "I dreamed that stone by stone I reared a sacred flame, a temple, neither pagoda, mosque, nor church, but a loftier, simpler, always open-doored to every breath from Heaven, and Truth and Peace, and Love and Justice came and dwelt therein". Further quotes "To live as gently as I can,/ To be no matter where --a man;/ To take what comes of good or ill,/ And cling to faith and honor still;/ To do my best and let that stand,/ The record of my brain and hand;/ And then should failure come to me,/ Still work and hope for victory". Wishes Fowler continued success. Also notes that the Imperial Wizard is in poor health, but wishes to show signs of convalescence. Signed the Knights of Ku Klux Klan of Kanada.
