"Meeting held at 22 Cintra Avenue 10.3.41<br/> F. E. Pollard in the Chair. <br/> 1. The minutes of the last meeting were read and signed. <br/> [...] <br/> 3. Violet Clough read an exceedingly interesting paper on “Children’s Literature” showing the was it has developed from the “Moral Tales” of Maria Edgeworth published at the beginning of the 19th. Century, to the delightful tales by Beatrix Potter &amp; A. A. Milne which are read today. The one retrogressive step she thought was in the binding of the books, which today seem to come to pieces almost at once. All the mothers present agreed with this, so it is no reflection on the Clough children in particular although it may be on the modern child in general. <br/> 4. Readings from children’s literature were then given as follows:<br/> Labour Lost from the Rollo Books. Selected by S. A. Reynolds & read by A. B. Dilks. <br/> “The Fairchild Family” by Mrs. Sherwood read by Mrs. Pollard – this was particularly gruesome. <br/> “Little Women” by Louisa Alcott read by Mary Stansfield. <br/> Divers examples of children[’]s poetry read by Rosamund Wallis, which included an impromptu recitation by Howard Smith of one of Hillair[e] Belloc’s Cautionary Tales. <br/> “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carrol[l] read by F. E. Pollard. <br/> “Samuel Whiskers” by Beatrix Potter read by Muriel Stevens. <br/> “The Sing Song of Old Man Kangaroo” a Just So Story by Rudyard Kipling, read by Howard Smith. <br/> “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame read by Margaret Dilks. <br/> “The House at Pooh Corner” by A. A. Milne, read by A. B. Dilks. <br/> 5. Bruce Dilks sang two of Fraser-Simsons settings of A. A. Milne’s Poems. “Christopher Robin Alone in the Dark” and “Happiness”. <br/><br/> [Signed as a true record of the meeting by] S. A. Reynolds April 7th / 41"
