354. J. M. Keynes to Harrod , 6 April 1934 [a]

46, Gordon Square, Bloomsbury #

6 April 1934

My dear Roy,

What about the enclosed note of yours on Collective Bargaining, which, you will remember, we left out of the Journal in order to make room for another note of yours to which you attached more importance? [1]

Looking at this note again, it seems to me to be interesting and I see no sufficient reason why it should be massacred. Have you, in the meantime, found any reason to alter it or use the material elsewhere? If not, I should be disposed to keep it by me for publication either in June or, as you already have a note coming out in that, [2] perhaps in the September Journal. [3]

Yours ever,

J M Keynes
