36. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, 4.3.30

Bulwarks Lane,




My dear Roy,

Hobhouse obviously can't be expected to fight this seat again - can you put me on to anyone? We've an income of about £500 - the candidate has to put up another £100-£200, & either pay his own expenses or obtain them from `the usual sources'. A very good man might conceivably get in - I won't put it higher than that. Hobhouse pulled up to within 6-700 last time, & anybody else would have got in; but the new Tory member is a pretty good fellow.

This is all very indiscreet & unofficial.
