115R. J. B. Herbert to Harrod, 4 June 1926 [a]
Herbert suggests that the Asquithian current of the Committee of the Club (namely Harrod, Beechman, Herbert and Gilbert Murray) should try to win the Club's majority and contrast the Georgites.  Possibly continues at 932 R.
Harrod later recalled that "I was a friend of the Asquith family; I was an ardent Liberal and, in particular, had been for some years what was called an Asquithian Liberal as distinct from a Lloyd George Liberal" (The Prof., 1959, p. 121). A. D. Lindsay, however, wrote in June 1926 to the Manchester Guardian that he would consider Harrod a Lloyd George Liberal (MAG A/H29/6. The Manchester Guardian was considering whether to ask Harrod to take up a post, which they eventually did: see letter 116 R).
