721R. Harrod to G. E. G. Catlin, 1 December 1937 [a]

Harrod does not agree with Catlin regarding the pragmatic success of the U.S.S.R.'s population policy: "The birth rate there is lower than before the war and we have no reason to suppose that she is not following our own footsteps--with a big time-lag, I grant, as befits a semi-barbarous country." "I have seldom felt so angry as I now feel about the iniquitous speech of A. P. H.". [1]

  1. 1. On ÆPatrick Herbert's speech see note 3 to letter 720 R.
    1. a. From Christ Church, Oxford#, ALS, two pages, in GEGCP, Box 156.
