41R. Harrod to J. D. Woodruff, 4 November 1922 [a]

Follows on from 39 R. "I have to read a paper to the Economics Club here. I will have to be decent. I shant be able to write it at once, partly because I cant think what to write it on." [1] ]"I am not helping any Liberal. [2] I am rather secluded here, and have excuses for not doing anything. It would be silly to undertake some job [...] just to save my conscience for going to Ipswich (my labor friend is there having a straight fight with a conservative)." [3]
