38R. E. J. C. Neep to Harrod, 28 October 1922 [a]

Neep was fighting the Woolbridge division for Labour, and asked if Harrod could go and help. He reminded him of a certain October morning five years before, when Harrod gave him new courage on a similar occasion. [1]

  1. 1. The Parliament was dissolved on 26 October 1922, the general election was held early in November. Two other letters from Neep to Harrod are extant concerning this affair. On 2 November Neep thanked Harrod for accepting to help him and specified that the fight was straight against a conservative, the liberal candidate having retired (in HPBL Add 71616/124); on 10 November he reported on the results of the poll (in HPBL Add. 72730/156-57). A year later, Paul Bloomfield met Neep, to whom Harrod "secured good votes at the last election", and asked Harrod to tell him more about him (Bloomfiled to Harrod, 11 November 1923, in HPBL Add 71609/98).
    1. a. From Freston Rectory, Ipswich, four pages ALS, in HPBL Add 71616/122-23.
