Dear Maynard

I am sorry, but I expect it is better that you should not come to Cambridge. I assume that you have forwarded the paper to Shove. It is very good of you to do this for us.

I leave the question of the publication of my article in your hands. I think the paragraph towards the end about the relation between self-generated inflation, inflationary policy and deflation needs re-phrasing. [1]

I was amazed at the unsolicited publication of my article in the Times in pamphlet form. I cant quite see why anyone should buy 250 copies! [2]

We shall miss you at Cambridge. I do hope that your improvement will be all the speedier.
