357Z. Harrod to Lindemann, 18 June, 1935 [a]

Harrod thinks that a decision taken during a London meeting in favour of S[alter]. and against Lindemann depended on broad political matter --"India etc."--, but S. was in reality morally defeated. Harrod suggests that Lindemann should not take any further action for the time being, because anything said would reinstate S. a little in popular favour. Continues at 359 Z.
