Letter from Charles Clyatt to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter discussing the policy and content of the Social Reformer. Clyatt states that the Reformer could be used to show Social Reformers "that until all they desire can be obtained, it may be practicable to advance social and political Reform at the same time, however dissimilar they may at first appear to be"; writes that Mr [William] Parr goes even further on this subject, but acknowledges that Owen will want social and not political reform as the first subject [of the Reformer]. Clyatt is confident the Reformer will prove to be a "worthy organ", observing that the space the London press are devoting to the "cause" provides evidence of this.
