Jonathan Swift, Lilliput, and Religious Tolerance

One thought on “Jonathan Swift, Lilliput, and Religious Tolerance”

  1. According to the book titled Masonic Records 1717-1894, compiled by John Lane (London: United Grand Lodge of England, 2nd Ed. 1895), Lodge No. 16, warranted in 1723, met at the Goat Tavern, which was located “at the foot of the Haymarket.” During this period, this lodge, like most other lodges, had no name, but was known only by its location, which, in this case, was at “The Goat Tavern.” Also, Alexander Pope’s name appears in a 1730 list of members of the lodge that met at the Goat Tavern.
