Letter from Robert Cooper to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens by thanking Owen for sending a cheque for £5, for which Cooper expresses his thanks as he was "about to abandon the idea of going further North (than Glasgow) due to lack of funds". He explains that he can now proceed to Aberdeen and Dundee where there is a "strong desire for Social lectures", although the "friends" who desire the lectures are described as "unorganised"; writes that he will try to get as far as Inverness, although the personal risk may be "considerable" in such an area.
