42. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, 2 February, 1936

Bulwarks Lane,


2 February, 1936

My dear Roy,

I returned greatly refreshed from my all-too-brief stay with you - tho' I must say you're not very encouraging about our `struggling .... morality'! But I don't care. You're wrong. (You don't seriously suggest, do you, that those who have capital now should be finally fossilized as the only capitalists!) And I am shooked to my Quaker core to hear you blathering about its not mattering whether things have been paid for or not ---

But seriously, I hope I was duly matter-of-fact as an exhibit - at least I aired no theories. And if you philosophers can give me any advice, I shall be very glad to have it - in words of one syllable!

Yours ever
