Letter from John Woods to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Woods states that he believes himself and Owen to have been appointed to "carry out the principles of the highest Heaven" and to help remove tyranny and establish "perfect freedom."

He believes in order to remove tyranny the "Priestcraft Christianity" will have to be abolished and replaced with "rational Christianity." Woods has laid down the principles of this new form of Christianity in a work entitled, Coming of the Lord's Christ.

Woods ends the letter by asking Owen for an interview so that he may give a full explanation of his "rational Christianity."
