     Material appearing in yearly publications of the Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Texas includes the returns of the various chapters in the state. Returns for the year 1878-1879 can be found in TRANSACTIONS OF THE M. E. GRAND ROYAL ARCH CHAPTER OF TEXAS AT ITS THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONVOCATION HELD AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE, IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON, ON THURSDAY, THE ELEVENTH DAY OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1879, A. I. 2409, AT THREE O’CLOCK P. M., which was published in Houston by W. H. Coyle, Printer and Lithographer, in 1880. (In the title, the M and E are each followed by three dots, representing the Triple Tau emblem of the organization. However, for simplicity, a period is used in this column.) Below is an example of a return, which furnishes the name and location of the individual chapter, its regular meeting time, the names of chapter members, and the offices they held. Because many of office names include the Triple Tau emblem, only the initials of those offices will be used in the list below.
