Meeting held at 70 Northcourt Avenue: 17.1.39 Charles E. Stansfield in the Chair. <br/> 1. Minutes of last read & approved. <br/> [...] <br/> 3. A letter from R. H. Robson was then read. It stated that the excellence of Book Club suppers has increased, is increasing, & ought to be diminished. This caused a certain embarrassment. Several members who liked to think of themselves as frugal folk, reflected uneasily that the interval for light refreshment had often proved itself more palatable than some of the drier fare before and after.[...] <br/> [...] <br/> 9. Finally the Chairman referred again to the Supper question. R. H. Robson’s concern was one of those which demanded from us a statesmanlike Quaker compromise, perhaps an acceptance in principle and a rejection in practice wold best meet the case. It was felt we should thank R. H. Robson for his letter, and watch him closely during heat. <br/>[signed] R. D. L. Moore</br> Feb. 20 1939.
