Letter from Alex Campbell to Robert Owen

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter that refers to an offer by Thomas Atkins to build a submarine with which to break the siege at Sebastapol in the Crimean War (see ROC/1/44/6). Atkins offer is given without any mention of payment for his time, and Campbell ventures that this proves Atkins' "disinterested Sincerity in the matter"; Owen is asked to obtain an interview with new members of the Cabinet [of the Government] to help Atkins with his plans.
