Meeting held at 22 Cintra Avenue: 17. IV 40. F. E. Pollard in the chair <br/> 1. Minutes of last read & approved. <br/> [...] <br/> 5. As an introduction to our subject of Modern English Humourists, R. H. Robson read a passage analysing the nature of Humour. Discussion followed on the distinction, if any, between wit & humour, & various alleged examples were forthcoming. <br/> 6. A. B. Dilks read from Grossmith’s Diary of a Nobody; many entries appealed to members as characteristic of themselves or their friends. <br/> 7. In the regretted absence of C. E. Stansfield, F. E. Pollard read T. Thompson’s Blitzkrieg, from the Manchester Guardian, in what purported to be the Lancashire dialect. <br/> 8 Howard R. Smith read from A. A. Milne: the reader shared fully in the mirth of the hearers. <br/> 9. M. Dilks gave us a passage from Macdonnell’s ‘England, their England’, which must have been salutary for any suffering from insular complacency. <br/> 10. Rosamund Wallis’ contribution was from P. G. Wodehouse’s ‘Carry on, Jeeves’; certain methods of being off with the old love & on with the new were characteristically indicated by the writer, effectively rendered by the reader, & clearly appreciated by the company. <br/> 11. R. H. Robson’s Saki story supplied further satire on English standards – in this case of music, & the services likely to secure a title. <br/> 12. The chapter from Barrie’s ‘Window in Thrums’, read by F. E. Pollard, told how Gavin Birse did his best to be off with the old love, but failed. <br/> 13.
