Additional Comments:

Material by kind permission of the XII Book Club. For further information and permission to quote this source, contact the Reading Experience Database (http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/reading/contacts.php). I have assumed the Secretary would read the minutes. The ones read are in A rawlings' hand; these and subsequent ones in Unwin's, so this must indicate a change of secretary from this date.
