885. Harrod to M. H. Macmillan , 3 January 1939 [a]
[Replies to 883 , answered by 886 ]
Christ Church, Oxford #
3 January 1939
Many thanks for your letter. I wonder whether you think that the Manchester Guardian article is sufficiently lucid to be worth circulating to a number of conservative members?  I have a certain number of copies left. Though I sent a copy to you, I did not send it to more than 2 or 3 members when it appeared. I enclose another copy in case you did not keep yours.
Then I thought if I sent it I might cover it with a letter on the lines of the enclosed.  If you think this worth doing, would you return it to me, as it is my only draft.
I should do it of course entirely on my own responsibility without referring to any other person whatever. Where I should like your assistance, if you think the thing worth proceeding with, would be a list of suitable Conservative members to send it to. I suppose one might take the abstainers on the Munich resolution as a basis. Perhaps there are some other potential wobblees?
I look forward to seeing you in Oxford soon.
