29 October [1932] [b]

Dear Mr. Harrod,

It was just because I suffer from the same inability to beep out of a scrap where marginal curves are concerned that I asked you to refrain. I can't trust myself not to spend time in it that ought to go to my book. [1] But why not read the article [2] & make note against my turning up in Oxford next month (Nov. 18 or so)? Don't bother to write in between. I have decided to leave the article as it is even if you convince me that I have got you wrong. You can always sink me in a Note. [3] But I think we agree on all major points.
