Organiser — Miss Annie Williams, 1, Fitzwilliam St. West, Huddersfield.
Hon. Sec. — Miss Lettice Floyd.

Miss Georgina Brackenbury’s visit will not soon be forgotten. In Huddersfield and at Halifax she charmed her audiences with her forcible and delightfully humorous speeches. The Reception in Whiteley's Café[1], Huddersfield, on Wednesday afternoon was a brilliant success. More than a hundred accepted invitations and there must have been quite that number present, and the collection was a welcome addition to the funds. The organiser is most grateful to Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Lockwood, Mrs. Cockroft, Mrs. Robinson and Miss Lowenthal. The Reception was well reported by the Huddersfield Daily Chronicle. Will members who can do so give drawing-room meetings? Hearty thanks to Halifax members who helped to make the Victoria Hall meeting such a success.

Tues., Feb. 20. — Halifax, Mechanic's Institute, Miss Annie Williams, 8 p.m.

Fri., Feb. 23. — Huddersfield, Parochial Hall, Miss Annie Williams, 3.30 p.m.
