Meeting held at Gower Cottage. 2nd. Dec. 1943 Muriel Stevens in the chair. <br/> 1. Minutes of last meeting read & signed.<br/> 2. The treasurer reported on the club’s finances. No accounts were presented for inspection, indeed the only member near enough to the treasurer to get a glimpse of his A/C book protested that the figures read out in no way corresponded to those written down. Amid a good deal of flippant comment a balance in hand of 6/3 was revealed. A vote of confidence in the treasurer was moved and his report accepted. <br/> [...]<br/> 5. After a refreshing interval we proceeded to the ever more difficult task of selecting books for this year’s reading. The Committee [Knox Taylor, Muriel Stevens and Rosamund Wallis – see minutes of the meeting held 6 October, XII Book Club Minute Book, Vol. 4, p. 162] had gone to a good deal of trouble in order to put before us a list of books which it was possible to get. However, these did not meet with very general approval, so we proceeded to vote on the list of much more interesting books many of which the committee had ascertained were already out of print & unobtainable.
