13R. Oxford University Liberal Club, [circular letter to possible members], [October 1920] [a]

Letter drafted by Harrod, presenting the Club and stressing in particular its disagreement with the principle of coalition in peace-time and with the foreign policy it implies, with the Irish policy (advocating instead a generous measure of self-government), and with mines and railways policies. As to the Labour Party, the Club deplores its attachment to sectional spirit. Harrod also emphasizes that the Club firmly believes in peace and in the principles of Liberal philosophy, in particular personal freedom and free trade.

  1. a. AD, draft, two pages, in HPBL Add. 72734/59. The date is inferred from a reference to the existence of the Club since the previous year.
