At a recent secret meeting of Suffragists a serious difference of
opinion arose. This led to a split, and a certain number left the
meeting. "I had half a mind to go myself," said the chair-woman, "and if
I had done so, two-thirds of us would have retired." "True," said
another member; "but if I had persuaded my friends Mrs. Wild and
Christine Armstrong to remain we should only have lost half our number."
Can you tell how many were present at the meeting at the start?
