Plaque 1: Fifteen Fellowcrafts appointed to preside over the rest, conspiring to obtain the secrets of a Master Mason; twelve of which recanted, leaving three of a more determined and atrocious nature than the rest.
Plaque 2: The first of those ruffians armed with a Plumb Rule accosting our Master in an attempt to obtain the secrets of a Master Mason by any necessary means; even to have recourse to violence.
Plaque 3: A depiction of the second ruffian after having been refused the secrets of a Master Mason, striking our Master a glancing blow to the left temple with a Level which caused him to reel and sink on his right knee.
Plaque 4: A representation of the third ruffian, having had his insolent demands refused by our Master, striking him a violent blow to the forehead with a heavy Maul, which laid him lifeless at his feet.
Plaque 5: The overseers coming before King Solomon to acquaint him with the utter confusion into which the absence of our Master had plunged them.
Plaque 6: The fifteen trusty Fellowcrafts, formed into three Fellowcraft Lodges departing from the three entrances of the Temple, to ascertain whether our Master was yet alive, or had suffered death in an attempt to extort from him the secrets of his exalted degree.
Plaque 7: One of those Fellowcraft Lodges, having discovered the body of our Master very indecently interred, stuck a sprig of Acacia at the head of the grave to distinguish the spot.
Plaque 8: Our Master being raised from a figurative death to reunion with the former companions of his toils, while others more animated, uttered those ancient words.
Plaque 9: The third of those Fellowcraft Lodges having discovered the three ruffians responsible for the death of our Master hiding in a cave.
Plaque 10: King Solomon sentencing the three ruffians to that death the heinousness of their crime so amply merited.
