Letter from James Rigby to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Rigby providing an account of his progress carrying out tasks and errands on Owen's behalf. This includes forwarding Owen newspapers, and attending to matters regarding Colonel Henry Clinton.

Rigby believes it may be the case that Clinton has " is heart all right" but feels that his "head is all wrong", this despite Rigby giving him "lessons" [on the 'cause'].

Reference is made to the "blood letting" [capitial punishment] notions of [Thomas] Allsop, with Rigby wondering if Allsop has forgotten that "no made his own character - and killing bad ones does not make good ones".

Present is a copy of a Inquiry into the Evils of our Condition and the Remedy for these Evils, written by Colonel Henry Clinton.
