writer. […]

trip themselves. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;9. All of us were a good deal non plussed by “Hors d’Oeuvres”, an essay not inappropriately

          <ptr target="ukred-29728">&lt;p&gt;Meeting held at Oakdene, Northcourt Av, 20.3.34.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;      Sylvanus A. Reynolds in the Chair.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;1. Minutes of last read and approved, in the teeth of one dissident.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;br/&gt;[...]&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;5. We then proceeded to the anonymous essays and members felt on excellent terms with 
themselves at the prospect of hearing some attractive reading and of eluding or inflicting a good 
hoax or two.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;The first essay opened discreetly without title on the theme of “Newcomers to Reading”, going 
on to a description of the neighbourhood, its beauties its quaint place names and historical 
associations. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;6. Next came a paper on “Uniforms”. The writer was considered by one or two to show the 
observation of the masculine mind and the style of the feminine. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;7. Then came a letter to ""My dear Twelve"" written with the unmistakeable touch of the practised 
writer. […]
&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;8. We listened, too, with equal interest to a paper called “Canaries”, telling us something of the 
progress and perambulations of our latest migrant members. Moreover two or three of our 
number were able to follow their doings with particular appreciation, having mad much the same 
trip themselves. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;9. All of us were a good deal non plussed by “Hors d’Oeuvres”, an essay not inappropriately 
named, for it contained a perplexing mixture of fare, and certainly stimulated our appetite. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;10. Hardly less difficult was “Glastonbury”. Many of us had visited it, and so were able to follow 
closely the author’s points. But few of us knew enough of its history and legend to be sure 
whether or no our one professional historian had set his wits before us. So we gave up 
reasoning and just guessed. […]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;11. Finally we heard “Spoonbill”. It was a noteworthy paper, combining the love of the naturalist 
for the birds he watches with the craft of the writer in the language he uses. […]
&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;12. Here is the complete list. —&lt;/p&gt;
