704R. Harrod to Wilhelmine Cresswell, 16 October 1937 [a]
"So far as I can make out Nuffield College is likely to involve me in a great deal of unpaid work. I got on my high horse, which I always do with the Vice-Chancellor, it must make him furious, I dont know why I do it, I dont want to annoy him, and explained how in these investigations it was now possible to maintain certain high standards of scientific method, suggesting that if it was left to him it would degenerate into a talking shop." 
- a. From Christ Church, Oxford#, ALS, two pages, in HPBL Add. 72777/39.
