Letter from George Rogerson to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter, in which Owen is informed his offer to deliver a lecture at the Liverpool Medical Institution has been declined. Rogerson explains Owen's offer had been discussed at a Special Meeting of the Trustees, here it was discerned that "serious offence" may be given to a number of "Friends" should Owen lecture, and during the current "pecuniary difficulties" this "compelled" them to decline Owen's offer.
