23 October 1931
Dear Professor Harrod,
We have received a communication from Professor G. D. H. Cole [b] this morning, informing us that you are willing to speak as a Liberal on behalf of Labour candidates in constituencies where there is a straight fight against the Tories.
Acting on this information, we at once communicated with our Coventry and Rugby  parties and arranged for you to speak for them on Saturday and Monday, respectively. A telegram to this effect was despatched to you this morning. We are very grateful indeed for your assistance.
The local agents have been asked to communicate direct with you at Oxford in order to give you full particulars of the arrangements.
I hope you will have successful and enjoyable meetings.
With best wishes.
