#Folklorephoto Hearse Rules of the Spaniard's Bay Orange Lodge

This list came to us with material written by Wesley Gosse about Spaniard's Bay. This list would have hung at the "No Surrender" Loyal Orange Lodge No. 15 in Spaniard's Bay, and outlined the rules for the use of the Lodges hearse. The fraternal organization held parades, sometimes called 'walks', in the community as well as funeral procession for deceased members. The rules outline who could use the hearse for free, and how much it would cost for those who had to pay. Unfortunately the rules are not dated.
