493R. Harrod to Winston Churchill, 9 November 1935 [a] , [1]

Replies to 492 R. Harrod does not advocate handing over the Colonies, but is rather thinking of the Italo-Abyssinian dispute as a unique opportunity for uniting Britain under a common purpose. Harrod is glad that Churchill did not interpret, as many foreigners did, the Oxford motion as a sign of weakness.
