Letter from John Ashburner to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter which opens with prolonged discussion about a lost edition of Owen's newspaper. Ashburner then writes he has tried to distribute edition No.1 of Owen's journal [ Millennial Gazette], but says he has struggled to do so due to "prejudice" in the world in which he moves; adds that he hopes to get Mrs Crowe to attend a meeting being held by Owen feeling that "a bold discussion in the presence of thinkers may do good".
