438R. Harrod to J. M. Keynes, 6 March 1935 [a]

Harrod thanks for a weekend, encourages Keynes to spend more of his "spare time--perhaps after the next book is finished--in writing current history and biography!", and suggests him to resign from some City job or from the Journal to find the time for that. [1]

  1. 1. On 6 February Keynes had invited Harrod to stay over at King's on occasion of the belated celebrations for Malthus's centenary on 2 March (in KHLM 16 ), and on 28 February he invited him to dine at King's on 3 March, on which occasion he had arranged a little party (in KHLM 17 ). Harrod's remark probably originated from Keynes's address on the personality and thought of Malthus delivered at King's on 2 March (published as "Thomas Robert Malthus", Cambridge Review 56, 8 March 1935, pp. 305-06).
    1. a. From Christ Church # , ALS, two pages on one leaf, in JMK, GTE/1/203-204.
