Letter from S. B. Bulkeley to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Bulkeley discusses Mr. Evans' lectures; they reveal "a great necessity for change and renovation among the stagnant water of Shakerism." Daniel Douglas Hume, an American medium, has converted to Catholicism; Bulkely asserts that "it is well...we want no babies in the ranks." He celebrates the progress of "rational Spiritualism" in America and praises Owen's commitment to the religion "over the sea."
