'The rest of the meeting was devoted to Fanny Burney. Mrs Robson read a paper which had been prepared by Miss Cole dealing wih the main features of her life. We then had a number of reading [sic] from her works & diary by Miss Stevens, Mrs Unwin, Miss Cole, R.H. Robson, H.R. Smith, E.E. Unwin.
To Miss Cole was due the success of the evening. She selected the readings & in most cases copied them out for the different readers. They were well selected & gave an interesting glimpse into the kind of life lived by Fanny Burney at Court as a Lady in Waiting'.
