917R. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, 13 July 1939 [a]
Scott-Stokes agrees with Harrod about business morality:  although it is a "low-level" morality, it is effective as far as it goes.
Brand's letter mentioned above gave rise to an embarrassing situation, which Harrod described as follows to his wife: "I had a trunk-call from Andrews this afternoon. Apparently Brand--a very important banker--wrote some long notes about our business men reports addressed to me and Andrews replied that I had read them with interest. (I havent seen them of course). Brand met Henderson at dinner and was quite furious at this cavalier treatment by me of his attempts to help economists. Andrews was dumb-stuck with remorse over the problem. I have written to Brand to explain the circumstances" (letter of 22 July 1939, in HPBL 247-48). The matter was the subject of two letters to P. W. S. Andrews of 22 July and 1 August 1939 (in ABP 45 and 635, respectively).
- a. From Glastonbury, Somerset # , PcS, addressed to 74 High Street, Oxford, in ABP 635.
