Letter from A. Landman to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter [Mr] Landman informs Owen that he has read with "considerable attention" a number of his Millennial Gazette publications and is greatly interested in their subject matter.

Having commented on the lack of explanation regarding the new system of governance that Owen supports, Landman states that all great change is brought about by new inventions, such as gunpowder and steam engines. Landman states that [he] has discovered a new form of power that is not dependent on expensive materials, and could help in bringing about the new system. Landman asks whether Owen and his associates would provide aid in developing this new form of power.
