Scope and content

This is a Chinese Masonic membership receipt book (for the year of 1902) kept by the Union Mine branch of the Chee Kung Tong society. Inside there are names of donors along with the date, amount, and official red. Inside the book is a receipt for a donation from a Masonic Member for the construction of the Masonic Hall. These receipts could be sewn into clothing and kept secret; one could use a receipt of this kind as proof of their membership. This kind of book is extremely rare, as only a small number of them can be found in museums and archives.
