24R. Frances Harrod to Harrod, 16 May 1922 [a]

Harrod's mother suggests he resist the offer he was made: if he was good enough to be offered, he certainly had other possibilities. Frances Harrod inquires whether accepting the fellowship would prevent him going into Parliament for seven years, and considers that that would be a pity. [1]

  1. 1. Before being offered a fellowship at Hertford College (see letter 23 R), Harrod seems to have been planning a career to the Bar as a stepping-stone for politics: see letters 18 R and 25 .
    1. a. Postmark; sent from Paddington, two pages ALS, with envelope addressed to 26 The High Street, Oxford, in HPBL Add 71616/11-12.
