POWER comes from legitimacy, or force. But the force does not always need to be great provided it carries the promise of legitimacy.

ONE MAN can do great things.

Horse riders can go alone on the long path with nothing more than their sword, and a few coins, and conquer nations alone, or so it would appear, and I can prove it.

The statues of men who have not fallen under the shadow of the light no longer stand, and those who stood highest under the light have the most statues of strong metal standing centuries spanning continets they conquered riding their horse alone.

They have all been torn down, and no one would believe that there were not a single symbol of one who was not under their spell was left because there are so many who did such seemingly great things when they walked, and rode through their long lives.

The hand takes the young who would seek power by offering to give them great power, and they do, but you cannot hold what was not given to you so you cannot not wear your shoes when you ride their white horse and be barefoot as the other slaves.

JAMES KEITH fell under the eye and submitted turning against his own blood in which trust was placed by the people for the great things it had done so long ago.

LEGITIMACY was handed over to a PRETENDER who wore the hidden hand, and the family was almost slaughtered as terror for the few who were allowed to sit under the eye as slaves.

A virus spread one way while a butterfly flew the other.

On to the proof.....

Russian Freemasonry
by Wor. Bro. Dennis Stocks, Barron Barnett Lodge.

But, putting this account aside for the moment, there is better agreement that Freemasonry in Russia began with the flamboyant Lord James Keith (1696 - 1758) , a descendent from Scottish nobility, banished in 1715 for his support of the Stuart Pretender. He served in the Spanish Army, before moving to Russia in 1728 with the recommendation of Phillip V, and by the early 1740's was a leading Russian (sic) Army General. The Russian Empress Anna appointed him as the military governor of the Ukraine. But, importantly for our story, Keith was made Provincial Grand Master of Russian Freemasonry in 1740 by the Grand Master of England who also happened to be Keith's Cousin. Captain John Phillips had been appointed to this office for Russia in 1731, but there is no evidence to suggest he ever exercised it.

The minutes of the premier Grand Lodge of England for 24 June 1731 record:

"Then the Grand Master and his General Officers signed a Deputation for our Rt. Worshipful Brother John Phillips Esqr. to be Grand Master of free and accepted Masons within the Empires of Russia and Germany and Dominions and Territories thereunto belonging, and his health was drank wishing Prosperity to the Craft in those parts" (Batham, Transactions, p.34).

He was given power over ALL OF RUSSIA AND GERMANY, and all he had to do was help decimate his family, and make them into slaves for centuries.

The hidden hand has this power.

One man on a horse with a sword and a few coins can conquer continents when he wears the hidden hand.

I have tried for so long to say what must be said, but no one will listen.

They laugh and walk in circles, but at least they wear shoes.

Never ride a horse because it cannot get you to where you want to go, even if it may seeminly be very tall and fast while casting a long dark shadow on the path where you ride barefoot bearing your BLOOD.

It all started a very long time ago in a land across the Sea where the people wore no shoes because the hand had taken them away.

ONE MAN rose among them and brought the people together, and cast out the hand.

They handed him a CROWN and he handed them all FREEDOM.

It was sealed in blood drawn with his own hand from the head that wore the hidden hand broken with his own sword and drawn on a shield to be remembered that the people of the land were always free from the hidden hand.

Family Tree:


In the year 1010, King Malcolm II dipped three fingers into the blood of Camus, the slain Danish general, and drew vertical stripes upon the shield of Robert, leader of the Catti troops. These stripes then became the identifying marks for Robert's descendants, under the surname of Keith, along with a motto quoting Malcolm's words, "Veritas Vincit". Some heralds describe the Keith arms as "argent, on a chief or, three pallets gules" (silver shield with three, vertical red stripes on gold in the top 1/3rd of the shield). Even so, the configuration presently used in Keith arms, and recently proclaimed by the Lyon Court as the official version, enters a fourth pallet of gules, so that the chief begins and ends with red. This latter recording (now the correct description for Keith) is what we see in arms of Keith-Marischal and Earls of Kintore, and arms of allied families. Did Malcolm draw stripes with three bloody fingers or four? History says three. The fourth stripe in Keith arms, let us say, represents poetic license.

Then the hidden hand drew its own line in blood on the shield to seal its own word to it.

I would like to edit any word with a root in HONOR from this, but I will let you read it as the hidden hand wrote it.

When he went to Edinburgh he traded his shoes for a horse.

James Keith

KEITH, (the Honourable) JAMES, commonly called marshal Keith, the younger son of William, ninth earl Marischal, and lady Mary Drummond, daughter to the earl of Perth, was born in the year 1696. His aptness for learning seems to have been very considerable, since he acquired in after-life a reputation for letters scarcely inferior to his military renown; a circumstance which was possibly in no small degree owing to his having had the good fortune to receive the rudiments of his education from the celebrated bishop Keith, who was allied to his family by consanguinity, and who officiated as tutor to himself and his elder brother, the tenth earl Marischal.

Mr Keith was originally designed for the law, and with the view of making it his profession, he was sent to Edinburgh to complete his studies. It was soon discovered, however, that he entertained a much stronger predilection for the camp than the bar;—he seems indeed to have been very early attached to the military profession. His language, when the subject happened at any time to be alluded to, was always full of martial enthusiasm, even while yet a mere stripling. "I have begun to study the law," he said, "in compliance with the desires of the countess of Marischal, (his mother,) but commend me, gentlemen, to stand before the mouth of a cannon for a few minutes; this either makes a man in an instant, or he dies gloriously in the field of battle:" Such was the spirit in which the young soldier entered on his career of fame.

The earl Marischal, elder brother of the subject of this memoir, was one of those Tory noblemen who signed the proclamation of George I. The party being disappointed in their hopes of office under the new dynasty, he returned in a state of high irritation to Scotland, and at York met his brother James, who was on his way to London for the purpose of asking a commission in the army. The two young men returned home together, burning with resentment, and on the commencement of the insurrection of 1715, they were incited at once by their own feelings, and by the advice of their mother, who was a catholic, to declare for the Pretender. The meeting held by the earl of Mar, (who was their cousin,) under the semblance of a hunting match, was attended by the two brothers, and they continued, throughout the remainder of the campaign, to act a bold and conspicuous part under that unfortunate leader. The immediate subject of this memoir is said to have manifested a degree of resolution and conduct which attracted much attention, and inspired hopes of his future fortune. On the final dispersion of the rebel army at Ruthven in Badenoch, they had no resource but to make the best of their way to a foreign land, where they might be safe from the consequences of their enterprise. They proceeded, in company with many other Lowland gentlemen, to the Western Isles, where they designed to wait till a vessel could be procured to convey them to France. While in the isles, where they were detained nearly a month, the fugitives were frequently alarmed by reports of their retreat having been discovered, and that an armament had been despatched in quest of them; and on one occasion they were informed that three frigates, with two battalions of foot on board, were within ten miles of them. They, however, were not molested. On the 20th of April, a ship which had been despatched from France for the purpose, arrived at the island on which they were concealed. Losing no time, they, along with about a hundred companions in misfortune, embarked on board of this vessel, and arrived in safety at St Paul de Leon in Brittany, on the 12th of May, 1716. On their arrival at this port, the greater part of them proceeded immediately to wait upon the Pretender, who was then at Avignon; the others, amongst whom was Keith, went straight to Paris, where the latter had at that time several relations residing. On reaching Paris, Keith waited upon the queen-mother, by whom he was most graciously received, and who, amongst other flattering things, said, that she had heard of his good services in her son’s cause, and that neither of them should ever forget it. Keith now proposed to the queen-mother to visit the king, by which he meant the Pretender, and asked her permission to do so. She, however, dissuaded him from taking this step, saying that he was yet but young, and had better remain in Paris and recommence his studies, and concluded by proposing to bear the charge of his future education. Notwithstanding this flattering reception, a whole month elapsed before Keith heard any thing further from the queen-mother, and, in the mean time, he was reduced to great straits for want of money, living principally by selling horse furniture, which military officers were at this period in the habit of carrying about with them, and which, being sometimes richly ornamented with silver, was a very valuable article. There were many friends of himself and his family in Paris, who would readily have afforded him any pecuniary assistance he might have required, but, as he himself says, in a MS. memoir of his life, written with his own hand, to which we have access, "I was then either so bashful or so vain, that I would not own the want I was in." His wants, however, of this kind were soon amply provided for, and from various unlooked for sources. The queen-mother at length sent him 1000 livres, and much about the same time a Parisian banker waited upon him, and informed him that he had instructions from Scotland to supply him with money, and an order from king James to pay him 200 crowns a-year, with an apology for the smallness of the sum, as it was all that his (the king’s) circumstances enabled him to do. Relieved now from his pecuniary difficulties, be betook himself to study, to which he devoted the whole of the remaining part of the year 1716, and a great part of the following year. Previous to this, and while pursuing his studies, he received a commission as colonel of horse in the service of the king of Sweden, who entertained a design of making a descent on Scotland in favour of king James. The project, however, was discovered long before it could be carried into execution, and thus both the intended invasion and Keith’s commission fell to the ground. Another opportunity, although equally fruitless in its results, presented itself to the young soldier, now in his twentieth year, of pushing his fortune with his sword. This was the appearance in Paris of Peter the first, emperor of Russia. Keith made every effort to obtain admission into the service of that potentate, but without effect, he himself supposes on account of his not having employed the proper means. In the following year, 1718, learning that there was an intention on the part of Spain, similar to that which had been entertained by the king of Sweden, viz, to attempt the restoration of king James by invading Scotland—Keith and his brother the earl Marischal set out for Madrid, with the view of offering their services in the proposed expedition. These were readily accepted, and the two brothers, after repeated interviews with cardinal Alberoni, then prime minister of Spain, were furnished with instructions regarding the intended descent, and with means to carry that part of it which was intrusted to them into execution. By previous appointment, Keith and his brother the earl Marischal were met at Havre de Grace, the point at which they had fixed to embark for Scotland, by several of the Scottish leaders in the rising of 1715, who were still lurking about France. All of them having been advised of the undertaking, were furnished with commissions from the king of Spain, to apply equally to the Spanish forces which were to be sent after them, and to those which they should raise in the country.

The co-operation in this enterprise which they were led to expect was the landing in England of the duke of Ormond with an army, which it was proposed should immediately take place. Two frigates, with Spanish troops on board, were also to follow them within a day or two, to land with them in Scotland, and enable them to commence their operations in that kingdom. On the 19th of March, the expatriated chiefs embarked on board a small vessel of about twenty-five tons, and after encountering some stormy weather and running great risk from some English ships of war which they fell in with, they reached the island of Lewis on the 4th of April. They were soon afterwards joined by the two frigates, and a debarkation on the main land was immediately determined upon. In the expectation of being joined by large bodies of Highlanders, they proposed to march forward to Inverness, from which they hoped to drive out the small force by which it was garrisoned.

James Keith
from the Daily Mail, Saturday, January 8, 2000
by Alastair Robertson

It has long since ceased to be a talking point for the locals though inquisitive children can occasionally be seen swung high in a parent's grip to get a better look at the tall, grey statue erected at the heart of Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. Their gaze travelling upwards, past the riding boots, the three-quarter length coat, the just visible hilt of a sword and onto the square-jawed face they behold the image of Field Marshal James Keith.

Hundreds of miles away on the Continent a similar scene is acted out beneath an identical image which stands in Berlin. Constructed at the request of Wilhelm I of Prussia, it is the image of aman who, in exile from his native land, had led armies over much of Europe, inspired the lust of one of Europe's most powerful women and was to die, as he had lived, by the sword - the one true constant in his extraordinary life.

Born in 1696, in Invergurie Castle, two miles west of Peterhead, James Francis Edward Keith bore in his name the evidence of the family beliefs that were to force him and his elder brother into exile.Named after James Francis Edward Stuart, the Old Pretender, the second son of the 9th Earl Marischal was a Jacobite by birth and on the encouragement of his mother Lady Mary followed his elder brother George in a passionate pursuit of a cause to which his family were to lose everything.

Keith spent his youth and childhood at Inverugie Castle, a more welcoming edifice than the Keiths' imposing ancestral pile at Dunnottar, near the fishing port of Stonehaven.
