Anonymous Patron writes "The Catholic News Service reports on the bible used by Washington back in 1789 when he took office for the first time. The volume is still owned by the St. John's Lodge, which Johnson serves as chairman of the George Washington Inaugural Bible Committee. He was one of three lodge members who escorted the Bible to Washington in January for it to be displayed as part of an inauguration exhibit at the National Archives."
