Letter from Joseph Johnson to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Johnson writes of his amazement in reading Owen believed in "Spiritual Manifestations". He thinks this is likely due to Owen's age, or it is the case that Owen's "extraordinary mental exertions" over the years had taken their toll. Nevertheless, Johnson was encouraged enough to investigate the phenomenon within his own family, and explains he has been "gratified by experiencing the wonderful truth" and been "astounded at manifestation's produced".
