I've given him apologies for absence for meetings on September 15th, September 20th, October 13th and November 10th. I'm busy elsewhere on all of these occasions. Oops!
However, I will be able to go to two meetings in December, on the 8th and 13th. Phew. If any Brother wishes to accompany me to London on December 8th for our Christmas Lodge meeting, or if any Companion wishes to accompany me to Henley-on-Thames on December 13th for a joint Christmas meeting of the two resident chapters there, they should contact me through the usual channels.
