9R. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, 10 July 1920 [a]

Scott-Stokes invites Harrod to read a paper at the Essay Society, [1] and suggests that he joins the British-American Club, of which he is the Secretary; Woodruff has already joined.

  1. 1. Harrod read an essay on "The Lady from the Sea" before the New College Essay Society on 16 October 1920; the essay, with annotations regarding the impressions of Scott-Stokes, Bowra, Woodruff, Radcliffe, Strauss, is housed in HPBL Add. 72807/75-95. A further letter from Scott-Stokes of 19 July, concerning Harrod's proposed subject in reply to a note by Harrod not found, is filed in HPBL Add. 72732/87. Maurice Bowra described Harrod's speech as being "less about Ibsen than about himself as the only son of a widowed mother" (C. M. Bowra, Memories 1898-1939, 1966, p. 98).
    1. a. From Glastonbury, PcS, in HPBL Add. 72732/86.
