345. Harrod to William Beveridge , 1 February 1934 [a]
[Replies to 344 ] 
Christ Church, Oxford #
1 February 1934
How very kind of you to send me your notes.  I read them through with great interest. Some of your difficulties I share; others I think I could (owed to prolonged study!) resolve.
As a matter of fact my effort is now complete and already in print.  It will appear, I understand, in March. It is of prodigious length--some 20 pages. Even so I have only touched <on> [b] certain aspects of the book. I felt that if one was to make one's criticism cogent at all one must confine oneself.
P[igou] has had at least 2 careful readers. I wonder how many more he will get! It is a pity, because he can be an extraordinarily good expositor.
With very many thanks.
R. F. Harrod
