This version of the work documents the purgation of the name of Jesus Christ from the ritual. The prayer at the opening of a Lodge meeting as late as the 1756 version of this work included the words "This we most humbly beg in the Name and for the sake, of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen." The name "Jesus" and "Jesus Christ" are absent from this version.
