Meeting held at 22 Cintra Avenue, 21st June 1944<br/> F. E. Pollard in the chair. <br/> <br/> 1. Minutes of last meeting were read and signed. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 3. Howard Smith introduced G. K. Chesterton by giving us a very full and interesting account of his life. Essayist, critic, novelist and poet; always interesting, sometimes brilliant; inaccurate in factual detail yet showing quite extraordinary understanding of the great men of whom he wrote. <br/> <br/> 4. F. E. Pollard read from Chesterton’s biography of Robert Browning <br/> <br/> 5. We adjourned for refreshment. <br/> <br/> 6. Margaret Dilks read from “Orthodoxy”. <br/> <br/> 7. Rosamund Wallis read an essay “French and English” which was of particular interest in view of the present day political situation, and the difficulty statesmen of the two countries experience in understanding each other. <br/> <br/> 8. Isabel Taylor read “The Blue Cross” a thrilling and amusing detective story from “The innocence of Father Brown.” <br/> <br/> 9. Kenneth Nicholson read some of Chesterton’s poems: The Pessimist, F. E. Smith [i.e. ‘Antichrist, or the Reunion of Christendom: An Ode’] & King’s Cross [Station]. <br/> <br/> 10. It was too late to hear the readings from Chesterton’s biography of Charles Dickens, and it was suggested that this might well prove an interesting subject for a future evening. <br/> <br/> [signed as a true record by] Howard R. Smith 8/7/44"
