<p>Meeting held at St. Margaret’s, Shinfield Road: 20. 1. 38.</p> <p>F. E. Pollard in the chair</p> <p>1. Minutes of last read and approved</p> <p>[...]</p> <p>6. C. E. Stansfield opened the proceedings on Æ [A-E ligature, the name adopted by George William Russell] by a detailed biographical sketch of some length, in the course of which we gained some idea of the contradictions and complexities of A. E.’s character. [...] An interesting personal touch was added to the sketch by F. E. Pollard who had been present at one of Æ’s “salon” receptions.</p> <p>7. Extracts from A. E’s prose were then read by Mary S. W. Pollard on “Gandhi,” and by F. E. Pollard on “The one dimensional mind”.</p> <p>8. Finally F. E. Pollard and V. W. Alexander read three of A.E.’s poems.</p> <p>9. By this time most of us were more than ready for a little lighter matter, and we thoroughly appreciated some delightful touches from The Tinker’s Wedding by Synge which Rosamund Wallis gave with evident relish.</p>
