Letter from Robert Owen to James Rigby

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter informing Rigby he received his letter and enclosures. Owen says that the Colonel [Clinton] may be useful in aiding their cause but the names Rigby suggests to help the Colonel need instruction themselves.

Owen goes on to give Rigby a list of publications to send to Robert 2nd in Naples and gives him instructions for payment.

Owen tells Rigby that he doesn’t believe they will get much assistance in their cause and suggests his disciples are of no use to him. Owen says his intended moves will frighten them further. Owen asks Rigby to visit him and says Mr and Mrs Twort look forward to his visit where Rigby will eat some of Mrs Twort's excellent bread and butter.
