He wished it to be understood plainly, that only persons born of British parents within the Empire would be admitted to membership. Several new members were enrolled during the evening.


After 16 hands of cards had been played, a programme was contributed as follow: Songs by Mrs Critchley, the Misses Brown and Yule. Messrs. Hunt, White and Haydock, jr. Mr. Browne-Cooper acted as accompanist. A pleasant evening was brought to a close with dancing.
