"Meeting held at School House, L[eighton]. P[ark].: 18. i. 33.<br/>     Sylvanus A. Reynolds in the Chair.<br/> 1. Minutes of last read and approved<br/> [...]<br/> 5. Reginald Robson then spoke to us on the England of 1580 - 1590, with special reference to the development of the Elizabethan manor house. His attractive account of Ufton Court & the alluring photographs he passed round led several of our members to express the disre that our picnic next July might be held there. Reginald Robson may take it therefore that he is notified that his services as showman will be in request, and owners of motor cars are advised to have their vehicles in repair for the occasion.<br/> 6. In the absence of George Burrow, Edgar Castle read us some notes on the literature of 1580–1590 which George Burrow had gallantly prepared on his bed of sickness.<br/> 7. Victor Alexander then spoke of the situation in France during the period in question. Some of the Castles on the Loire were duly admired. They seem a little distant for a Book Club picnic[...].<br/> 8. Howard Smith had hoped to speak to us of the Faerie Queen, but as he was also in the grip of influenza Frank Pollard good naturedly discussed at short notice the versification of Spenser illustrating his remarks very pleasingly by quotations.<br/> 9. The company then dispersed homeward through the rigours of an arctic blizzard."
