424R. George Leveson-Gower to Harrod, 29 January 1935 [a]
Leveson-Gower sends Harrod a rejoinder by Mr Mason to Harrod's "rather severe" but "not very helpful" criticism of the proposals of the Sound Currency Association, which Leveson-Gower had sent to Mason. In reply to Harrod's argument that a standard "ought to have stable value as a yard measure ought to be stable in length", Mason admits that the gold standard is not so stable as required, but it is nonetheless the most stable yet proposed.
