Letter from William Cox to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Cox makes reference to Owen's health; writes he is sad to hear that Owen has been unwell and recommends drink as a remedy, suggesting he should " splice the main brace every night & so get rid of your malady" with "wine and stimulants" being proffered as the solution.

Discussion turns to Owen's passing years, with Cox stating he hopes Owen has "now done with meeting of every sort" and insisting Owen should be "happy and satisfied" with his achievements, leaving the rest to those who will benefit from his past exertions.
