"The rest of the evening was devoted to the works of Laurence Housman. Most of the members had seen & heard Mr Housman recently so there is no need to give any personal details & H.M. Wallis"s encyclopaedic summary of Housman"s artistic gifts & works put us in touch with the versatility of the man. ""A charming man"" says H.M.W. & so say all of us tho" I"m not sure whether someone did not say ""a little effeminate"". It was news perhaps to some to know that ""An Englishwoman"s Love Letters"" published some years ago anonymously were by Housman. The bill of fare was varied & we were introduced to a novel, a St Francis play, a Victorian play & the Child"s Guide to Knowledge. The choice whether conscious or otherwise gave us a rather curious result for in the main it dealt with the struggles & characters of women. Mrr & Mrs Evans dealt with The Sheepfold which relates the spirited history of a woman, "Jane Sterling". R.B. Graham chose out of all the St Francis cycle the coming of Sister Clair into the monkish community. Miss Marriage. E.E. Unwin & Alfred Rawlings gave a part-reading of ""The Queen God Bless Her"" which brought into prominence the foibles of Victoria and showed her in relation to two intimates, John Brown her favourite man-servant & Beaconsfield - her favourite minister. There was but little time left for R.H. Robson to display the fun of ""A Child"s Guide to Knowledge""."
