48. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, [17 Mar 1941]
[envelope postmarked Oxford, 17 Mar 1941 - CSS]
Sir - you are a scoundrel, but a nice kind scoundrel, & I'm very much obliged to you!
The facts are, as I told the D.I.S. yesterday, that increasing years &c. are obviously within sight of ending my usefulness as a .... Officer - I shan't stick it long enough to get a command, which would be the only thing that could justify it. I was therefore shaping towards getting out, in the course of the summer. If I get out, through you, some other way - very well, I shall be grateful to you. But I am not looking for a job - I have plenty to go back to, if none turns up. Money is immaterial. "The show goes on".
