Replies to a letter not found, follows on from 181 R, the exchange continues at 202 R and 215 R. Brown acknowledges his debt with Harrod for having been "`sold' to the Rockefeller people". [1] He is afraid that Harrod's "suggestions of getting work in statistical investigation has not proved practicable", and reports of his American experience: he describes his time at Ann Arbour, illustrates his plans for the semester, and explains that he is presently going to work at Mitchell's Business Cycles and that he is attending John Maurice Clark's lectures on the dynamics of value and distribution.
