"Meeting held at Oakdene, Northcourt Avenue 15. I. 35.<br/> Sylvanus Reynolds in the Chair<br/> <br/> 1. Minutes of last read & approved.<br/> <br/> 5. It was with a great pleasure to the club to welcome back Charles and Katherine Evans, who with the latter’s brother Samuel Bracher, came to entertain us with their programme of “Bees in Music and Literature.”<br/> <br/> 6. Charles Evans opened with an introduction that gave us an outline of the bee’s life.[...]<br/> <br/> 7. We next listened to a record of Mendelssohn’s “Bee’s Wedding.”<br/> <br/> 8. Samuel Bracher gave a longish talk on Bees and the Poets. He classified the poems as Idyllic, Scientific or Philosophical, and Ornamental; by quoting a great variety of works including lines from Shakespeare, K. Tynan Hickson, Pope, Thompson, Evans, Alexander, Tennyson, & Watson, he showed an amazing knowledge of the Poets. [...]<br/> <br/> 9. Charles Evans then spoke on Maeterlinck and Edwardes.<br/> <br/> 10. Charles Stansfield read Martin Armstrong’s Honey Harvest.<br/> <br/> 11. Another gramophone record gave us Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumble Bee”<br/> <br/> 12. Katherine Evans read from Vitoria Sackville-West’s “Bees on the Land”. Some of the lines were of very great beauty, & much enjoyed.<br/> <br/> 13 H. M Wallis then read an extract from the Testament of Beauty, concerning Bees. But he & all of us found Robert Bridges, at that hour in a warmish room, too difficult, and he called the remainder of the reading off.<br/> <br/> 14. A general discussion was the permitted, and members let themselves go."
