"Meeting held at Frensham:- 27.1.37<br/>     Howard R. Smith in the chair<br/> 1. Minutes of last read and approved.<br/> [...]<br/> 6. Members then read the play Green Pastures, with exception only of one big scene. Edgar Castle took the part of “De Lord Jehovah” (unavoidably absent) and Frank Pollard (perhaps with boyhood memories of the days when he was B. B. le Tall’s licensed jester) played the Archangel Gabriel. Of the others it might be said that each man in his turn played many parts, and Reginald Robson was a veritable Henry V at Agincourt, Pyrrhus at Troy, + Condé at Rocroi rolled into one with here and there a touch of the angels at Mons."
