The original ‘Main Objects’ of the Lodge were set out on page 34 of AQC Vol. 1 for 1887:
- To provide a centre and bond of union for Masonic Students.
- To attract intelligent masons to its meetings, in order to inbue them with a love for masonic research.
- To submit the discoveries or conclusions of students to the judgment and criticism of their fellows by means of papers read in Lodge.
- To submit these communications and the discussions arising thereon to the general body of the Craft by publishing, at proper intervals, the Transactions of the Lodge in its entirety.
- To reprint scarce and valuable works on Freemasonry, and to publish Manuscripts, etc.
- To make the English-speaking Craft acquainted with the progress of masonic study abroad, by translations (in whole or part) of foreign works.
- To tabulate concisely, in the printed Transactions of the Lodge, the progress of the Craft throughout the world.
- To acquire permanent premises and form a masonic library and museum.
