"To: P.G.M. James W. Davis (Non-Prince Hall Commission); Re-directing the commission focus on attempts to resolve the issue(s) between Prince Hall Masons and the Sons-of-Haiti."
"There appears to be some concerns expressed that we, Prince Hall Masons, should be making more progress towards bringing Afro-American Non-Prince Hall Masons into the fold. While I support the concept of total fraternal relationship and brotherhood, it is clear that the wounds that separate us as Prince Hall and Non-Prince Hall Masons are deeper, infectious and will require more time to heal."
"Feb. 3 (1998) To All Past Most Worshipful Grand Masters, re: Notification of healing ceremony for the former Sons-of-Haiti organization."
This was followed up by a February 27th Correspondence to the Jurisdiction that announced a "healing ceremony of the former Sons-of-Haiti." We know that ALL of the members of the Sons-of-Haiti members were healed based on the March 23rd letter sent to "The Skeleton Group of Sons of Haiti" that warned them about illegally operating as Sons-of Haiti Grand Lodge in Washington. There were also 1999 Correspondences of January 30th, placing the former Sons-of-Haiti into Headquarters Lodge #75. April 19th an Edict went out declaring the healing of the Sons-of-Haiti. Those members that were healed became a Lodge under dispensation designated as "Perseverance Lodge U.D." under the supervision of DAL Kenneth Anthony, who visited, advised and monitored the newly healed lodge for 60 days.This mentorship proved valuable, it was in the 1999 Annual Communication that Perseverance Lodge UD received its charter, and was now Perseverance lodge #103:
