768. Harrod to Winston Churchill , 19 May 1938 [a] , 
Christ Church, Oxford #
19 May 1938
Dear Mr. Churchill
It has occurred to me that the enclosed  might interest you, if you found time from your many pre-occupations to devote half an hour to it. If you look at the last paragraph first, it will give you a key to the trend of the argument. I am afraid that there is some rather technical matter in the first few pages, but the reasoning developes on broader lines as it proceeds.
It is rather shameless to trouble you with this. But I find that the main facts set out are usually unknown to any save a few experts and the matter is clearly one of major public importance.
Yours very sincerely
2. Harrod, "The Future of Gold" ( 1938:6 ).
