Scottish Rite Biography: 

From the Report of Stephen H. Beasley, 33°, Deputy Inspector for Alabama: Ill. and very Dear Brother: …On the 29 of March last [1880] I succeeded in reorganizing Alabama Lodge of Perfection, No. 2, at this place [Montgomery] and I have the pleasure of informing you that they have elected six and conferred the Degrees on two of the candidates, and, at my request, as instructed by you, they have also conferred the Degrees, 4 to 14, on Bro. Daniel Sayre, Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge, and will confer the Degrees on the remaining four during November. I think the Rite is growing and gradually increasing in strength and in good material at this place. I have been sadly disappointed at other points in the State, but I hope I have cheerful news to communicate, and the organization of a new Lodge to report before long.

From the Report of the Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike, 33°: Alabama Lodge of Perfection, No. 1, at Montgomery, Alabama, on the 16th of May, 1882, revived by the Grand Commander, assisted by the Lieutenant Grand Commander, Bro. Wm. M. Ireland, and Bro. Stephen H. Beasley, 33°, Deputy for Alabama.
