1. Apologies for absence were received from Margaret and A. Bruce Dilks, Alice and Arnold Joselin, Sylvanus A. Reynolds, Kenneth F. Nicholson, Francis H. Knight. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 3. The subject chosen was letters, and during the evening we heard a most interesting variety of letters, the matter varying from good & energetic advice to a brother-in-law by Abraham Lincoln, to the butcher of our dreams; from Zola’s account of the Dreyfus case to the amazing all-round ability to destroy of Leonardo da Vinci. Charming letters to children were read, and various letters to the public; and yet through all this variety, links were found connecting one set of letters with the next. <br/> <br/> In the first section of the meeting the following were read:- Letters by Leonardo da Vinci read by K. Waschauer, by Abraham Lincoln read by F. E. Pollard, and a humorous selection read by Edith B. and Howard R. Smith. <br/> <br/> 4. We adjourned for refreshments. <br/> <br/> 5. The minutes of the last meeting were then read and signed. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 7. The business being completed, we had a further selection of letters Zola’s letters on the Dreyus case [read by] Howard R. Smith[.] Letters written to children [read by] Muriel Stevens[.] Captain Scott’s last letters [read by] Elsie D. Harrod[.] J. M. Barrie’s letter to Mrs. Scott [read by] Rosamund Wallis[.] Letters of Gertrude Bell [read by] Mary Stansfield[.]<br/> <br/> 8. The meeting ended with general thankfulness that we had not to spend the coming night as Gertrude Bell had done on the mountains."
