417R. L. C. Robbins to Harrod, 9 January 1935 [a]
The letter regards Harrod's feeling of being misrepresented by Haberler and Bode.  Robbins explains that after the exchange between Harrod and Robertson, the Economica editorial board "had a long debate whether to close the issue definitely or--since we had several offers of contribution and actual manuscripts before us--to have one further comment. After much discussion it was decided to invite Haberler to contribute a short comment of not more than about 3000 words--since he was the most distinguished of the other participants in the controversy."  Robbins cannot consider either to include Harrod's reply in the current issue, or to delay Haberler's;  however, he promises that the editorial board would consider it for the next issue.
2. Haberler was pre-warned of this decision by Hayek--who was also sent Haberler's exchange with Harrod for comments (Hayek To Haberler, 22 November 1934, in GH Box 66).
3. Harrod, "Rejoinder to Drs. Haberler and Bode" ( 1935:1 ). The article, however, was printed in the current issue, immediately after Haberler's.
