suggestion, Routledge will pay special attention to Robert Byron's
- 1. R. Byron,
Europe in the Looking-Glass; Reflections of a Motor Drive from
Grinsby to Athens, London: Routledge, 1926. Byron thanked Harrod
for the troubles he had taken--which included a visit to Gilbert
Murray--on 23 July 1926 (in HPBL Add. 71182/90-91). In 1928,
Harrod wrote to Woodruff, who worked at The Times, to bear in mind
"that Robert Byron [wanted] a job urgently". "He is a man
of great literary capacity taste and knowledge. He knows about
painting, would do dramatic criticism very well etc. [...]
I am convinced that he would do any reasonable job well.
[...] A man of twenty times the brains of Eric Siepmann"
(6 February 1928, in DWP Box 3 Folder 23).
