George Sand : Countess of Rudolfstadt, The

'Mr Geo Burrow read a paper on George Sand indicating her semi-patrician origin & the County surroundings in which she lived. We were given some indication of her passionate nature & of how the various subjects of her passion were first adored on a pedestal & then fell through successive states to one of severe criticism if not contempt. The apt epigram was quoted that "George Sand did not behave as a perfect Gentleman". Readings as under from her work were then given, bringing out her love of country life & her considerable powers of descriptive writing, also the romantic cast of her tales. From Tillage of the Soil Celia Burrow Consuelo H.R. Smith The Devil's Pool C.E. Stansfield Countess of Rudolfstadt F.E. Reynolds'.
