Evidence

Meeting held at Oakdene, Northcourt Avenue: 18. 3. 40. Sylvanus A. Reynolds in the chair <br /> 1. Minutes of last read and approved <br /> 2. We began our meeting with four readings taken before the interval. These readings were love scenes from the following books or poems: <br /> Chas. Kingsley’s “Westward Ho”: read by Elsie Sikes <br /> Jas. Hilton’s “Goodbye Mr. Chips”: [read by] M Dilkes <br /> J. R. Lowell’s “Coortin’”: [read by] C. E. Stansfield <br /> Rev. W. Barnes’s “Bit o’ Sly Coortin’”: [read by] S. A. Reynolds <br /> These readings stirred the amorous instincts of certain of our members who regaled the club with courting stories. [...] <br /> 5. We then [...] listened to readings from <br /> Shakespeare’s: Merchant of Venice, by R & M Robson <br /> Browning’s: By the Fireside, by F. E. Pollard <br /> F. Stockton’s: Squirrel Inn, by Rosamund Wallis <br /> H. M. Wallis’s: Mistakes of Miss Manisty, by H. R. Smith <br /> Thackeray’s: The Rose and the Ring, by Muriel Stevens <br /> 6. These duly received their meed of comment & appreciation, and we then took our leave, two or three of the husbands going home, we suspect, to curtain lectures. <br /> <br /> [signed as a true record:] F. E. Pollard <br /> 17.IV.40.
