256R. J. M. Wyllie to Harrod, 9 September 1932 [a]
Wyllie asks Harrod the current meaning of the term "reflation" and where it first occurred, suggesting that it might be an American invention.  He encloses a proof of the entry "member bank" for the Oxford English Dictionary. 
Harrod later questioned the OED entry on reflation in correspondence with Onions (letters 539 R and 627 R), and further discussed it with Keynes (letters 632 and 633 ).
2. See letter 210 R, and in particular note 1 for Harrod's reply.
