Letter from Robert Owen to James Rigby

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Robert Owen informs James Rigby of a parcel he will send in the morning containing part five [of a publication] and a letter for the King of the Belgians. He asks Rigby to take this and the parcel which he has for Louis [Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte] and ask if they will be sent to him in Paris.

He continues to say that in his letters to the King [of Belgium] he has asked for his dispatches to foreign countries to be allowed to pass through his London Embassy. He laments the fact that other embassies have refused him this since the ambassadors have changed.
