559R. Harrod to E. C. Sackville-West, 15 May 1936 [a]

Harrod thanks Sackville-West for the biography of De Quincey, which he enjoyed very much. "The Political Economy section was excellent. I dont know how you made such a coherent piece out of my fragmentary notes." [1] Harrod also writes that he has "just been finishing my book which is now almost ready for the press." [2]
