Evidence

"H.R. Smith gave a brief outline of S. Baring Gould"s Life following which H.M. Wallis read from ""John Herring"" a Dartmoor tale. He also gave us a short criticism of Baring Gould"s work from which we learn that he wrote too fast for revision and his fiction was marred by many improbabilities. In short a maker of books rather than an artist. After supper Mrs Pollard read from The Broom Squire and E.A. Smith gave us an appreciation of our Author more favourable than H.M.W."s perhaps because it dealt mainly with the archaeological side of his work. F.G. Pollard kindly took C.I. Evans" place (he had lost his voice) by reading from ""Strange Survivals & Superstitions"" & H.R. Smith read from ""The Vicar of Morwenstow""."
