621R. Mary Murray to Harrod, 2 February 1937 [a]

Mary Murray suspects Harrod has done something wrong, namely, he backed Lindemann's candidature. [1]

  1. 1. Refers to the Oxford University by-election, where Lindemann ran as an Independent Conservative against Salter: see letters 578 R (in particular note 1 for more details on the candidates and the results) and 579 R. Harrod later recollected that he "was extremely anxious ... , on political as well as on personal grounds, that the Prof. should win. But the political gulf was still too great for me to do anything positive to aid him. I did one negative thing, however", by declining to act as Salter's electoral agent (The Prof., 1959, p. 164).
    1. a. From Yatscombe, Boars Hill, Oxford # , one page TLS, in HPBL Add. 71187/12.
