Evidence

"F.E. Pollard gave some account of Walt Whitman"s Life indicating the variety of livelyhood [sic] & of expression which he sought he also told us something of the leading ideas expressed in his work ""The Splendour of Life"" World wide Comradeship Immortality Freedom Broad Vistas. Geo Burrow read from the poem Memories of President Lincoln. After supper R.B. Graham read Captain, My Captain & Manhattan Faces. F.E. Pollard sang ""Ethiopian Saluting the Colours"". R.H. Robson amused us by reading passages showing Whitman"s fondness for lists. In the discussion which concluded the evening it was concluded that whilst Whitman is often effective his poems are often not poetry."
