Letter from Henry Travis to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Travis explaining he has been working on the long delayed report from Congress.

Following discussion about Owen's publications mention is made of the need to engrave a new charter for the new branches of the Universal Community Society of Rational Religionists, of which the Potteries has become branch 56, Mansfield number 57 and Northampton 58.

Travis alludes to a proposed trip Owen intends making to America when noting that he feels he will be unable to make what would surely be a "delightful" journey as he would be leaving himself open to the accusation that he has "deserted his post".
