At a time when there were no provincial clubs, it offered to local professional men a place to come together. The number present seldom exceeded thirty and, in olden times, rarely more than half that number. Thus, it has always been customary to dine at one table with the meetings always maintaining the intimate character of a family gathering. When the tablecloth is rolled back the usual toasts are given with firing glasses, and, amongst the customs are the marrow bones on Installation Nights, the passing of the snuff box, the Secretary's toast, and the toast to 'Absent Brethren and Bygone Members of the Lodge' which is drunk from a Loving Cup, purchased as a memorial to Bro A. W. Nash whose family had been connected with the Lodge from 1835 to 1923. " - See Provincial Grand Lodge Hertforshire.
