"Meeting held at 67 Eastern Avenue, 28th. Nov. 1945.<br/> A. Austin Miller in the chair. <br/> <br/> 1. The minutes of the last meeting were read & signed. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 3. While we were discussing possible books for the coming year, the Treasurer was dispatched to fetch from his home the Club account books in order that we might be able to review our finances. He was later able to assure us that we have a balance in hand of about £7. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 7. X = 0 by John Drinkwater was read with the following cast: &mdash; <br/> Pronax &mdash; F. E. Pollard <br/> Salvius &mdash; A B Dilks <br/> Ilus &mdash; T. Hopkins <br/> Capys &mdash; Austin Miller <br/> Stage directions, passing sentinels &amp; noises off &mdash; Hilda Hopkins <br/> <br/> We then had three readings each of a national character. For the first of these representing England Dora Langford read from “Nicholas Married” a sequel to Nicholas Nickleby of doubtful authorship. Both the age of the book and its illustrations were extremely interesting. Scotland was represented by an extract from ‘A Window in Thrums’ by J. M. Barrie read by Muriel Stevens. And Wales by readings by Stella Hopkins from “An Englishman looks at Wales by R. W. Thompson” <br/> [signed as a true record by] C.J. Langford [on 10 January 1946, at the club meeting held at 44 Hamilton Rd.: see Minute Book, p. 48.] <br/> <br/>"
