"Meeting held at “Frensham” 8th July 1944<br/> Howard R. Smith in the chair.<br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 7. “Love Came In” by Beatrice Saxon-Snell was read with the following cast:- <br/> Thomas Curtis — F. E. Pollard <br/> Anne Curtis — Isabel Taylor <br/> Sandra — Elsie Harrod <br/> Joe Coale — Bruce Dilks <br/> James Naylor — Howard Smith <br/> <br/> Before the reading Howard Smith briefly recounted the historical events leading up to the time at which the action takes place. which explains the very strained relations between George Fox & James Naylor. It was agreed that when the copies were returned to Beatrice Saxon-Snell she should be warmly thanked for lending them to us, & told how very much the club appreciated the play. <br/> <br/> 8. “The Dear Departed” by Stanley Houghton a play of a much more frivolous nature, was read with the following cast:- <br/> Henry Slater — Bruce Dilks <br/> Amelia Slater — Muriel Stevens <br/> Ben Jordan — Howard Smith <br/> Elizabeth Jordan — Rosamund Wallis <br/> Victoria Slater — Margaret Dilks <br/> Abel Merryweather — F. E. Pollard <br/> <br/> 9. It being still quite early we decided to read another short play & chose quite at random from the books available “The Man who wouldn"t go to Heaven” by F. Sladen-Smith. Read from sight and cast quite haphazardly this proved most entertaining. F. E. Pollard as the recording angel, Basil Smith as the Free Church Minister (with a voice pregnant with unxious non-conformity), Rosamund Wallis as a string minded woman calling loudly for her dog & indeed every character was most aptly portrayed. The full cast was as follows: <br/> Thariel — F. E. Pollard <br/> Margaret — Margaret Dilks <br/> Richard Alton — Bruce Dilks <br/> Bobbie Nightingale — Howard Smith <br/> Eliza Muggins — Muriel Stevens <br/> Sister Mary Teresa — Dorothea Taylor <br/> Mrs Cuthbert Bagshawe — Ruth Beck <br/> Harriet Rebecca Strenham — Rosamund Wallis <br/> Rev John McNulty — Basil Smith <br/> Timothy Toto Newbiggin — Sylvanus Reynolds <br/> Derrick Bradley — Elsie Harrod <br/> <br/> [signed as a true record by] AB Dilks 18/9/44"

&lt;br/&gt;
7. “Love Came In” by Beatrice Saxon-Snell was read with the following cast:- 
&lt;br/&gt;
    Thomas Curtis — F. E. Pollard &lt;br/&gt;
    Anne Curtis — Isabel Taylor &lt;br/&gt;
    Sandra — Elsie Harrod &lt;br/&gt;
    Joe Coale — Bruce Dilks &lt;br/&gt;
    James Naylor — Howard Smith &lt;br/&gt;
&lt;br/&gt;
Before the reading Howard Smith briefly recounted the historical events leading up 
to the time at which the action takes place. which explains the very strained 
relations between George Fox &amp; James Naylor. It was agreed that when the copies 
were returned to Beatrice Saxon-Snell she should be warmly thanked for lending 
them to us, &amp; told how very much the club appreciated the play. &lt;br/&gt;
&lt;br/&gt;
8. “The Dear Departed” by Stanley Houghton a play of a much more frivolous 
nature, was read with the following cast:- &lt;br/&gt;
    Henry Slater — Bruce Dilks &lt;br/&gt;
    Amelia Slater — Muriel Stevens &lt;br/&gt;
    Ben Jordan — Howard Smith &lt;br/&gt;
    Elizabeth Jordan — Rosamund Wallis &lt;br/&gt;
    Victoria Slater — Margaret Dilks &lt;br/&gt;
    Abel Merryweather — F. E. Pollard &lt;br/&gt;
&lt;br/&gt;
9. It being still quite early we decided to read another short play &amp; chose quite at 
random from the books available “The Man who wouldn"t go to Heaven” by F. 
Sladen-Smith. Read from sight and cast quite haphazardly this proved most 
entertaining. F. E. Pollard as the recording angel, Basil Smith as the Free Church 
Minister (with a voice pregnant with unxious non-conformity), Rosamund Wallis as 
a string minded woman calling loudly for her dog &amp; indeed every character was 
most aptly portrayed. The full cast was as follows: &lt;br/&gt;
    Thariel — F. E. Pollard &lt;br/&gt;
    Margaret — Margaret Dilks &lt;br/&gt;
    Richard Alton — Bruce Dilks &lt;br/&gt;
    Bobbie Nightingale — Howard Smith &lt;br/&gt;
    Eliza Muggins — Muriel Stevens &lt;br/&gt;
    Sister Mary Teresa — Dorothea Taylor &lt;br/&gt;
    Mrs Cuthbert Bagshawe — Ruth Beck &lt;br/&gt;
    Harriet Rebecca Strenham — Rosamund Wallis &lt;br/&gt;
    Rev John McNulty — Basil Smith &lt;br/&gt;
    Timothy Toto Newbiggin — Sylvanus Reynolds &lt;br/&gt;
    Derrick Bradley — Elsie Harrod &lt;br/&gt;
