400Z. Faber to Harrod, 21 January, 1937 [a]

Having seen Harrod's article in The Spectator, [1] Faber returns to the charge (see 389 Z), asks whether Harrod has decided for or against a book, and formulates a concrete offer regarding a book aimed at the intelligent layman. Faber shares Harrod's alarm, and points out that while newspaper articles have wider impact but are gone the day after, a book often has an effect out of all proportion to its circulation. [2] See also letter 429 Z.
