Evidence

Meeting held at 70, Northcourt Avenue 30. X. 34.<br/>     Charles E. Stansfield in the Chair.<br/> 1. Minutes of last read and approved.<br/> <br/> 2. There followed a fairly general escape of steam over the question of sending on books. Despite the fact that every book carries on its brown paper cover the date on which each member of the Club is in turn entitled to receive it [...], there had been once again considerable confusion.<br/> <br/> [...]<br/> <br/> To the satisfaction of all it was then resolved that if only the Secretary would write out twelve nice little lists of all the books in the order of their rotation and paste them on the backs of the brown paper covers all would in future go well. [...]<br/> <br/> Amid the general enthusiasm for secretarial efficiency, one member came near to being immortalized in these minutes by suggesting that it would be found helpful if the Secretary would type and distribute reviews of books advertised in the Autumn lists of the various publishing firms. This suggestion, though intended doubtless as a touching tribute to an obscure official, was negatived by the intervention of a former Secretary.<br/> <br/> The present holder of the office was then left alone, & allowed to go home and read and reflect upon La Fontaine’s fable — “Les animaux malades de la peste”"
