Letter from William Offord to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter opening with Offord outlining his plans for his return to America with his son and daughter via a sailing packet from London. This is despite reservations of the safety of such a method of crossing the Atlantic. Once in America, he will then deliver Owen's works as Owen requested him to do.

In response to a query from Owen, Offord writes that at no time did Daniel [his son] act "deceptiously" when he was a "medium" and nor was he asked to do by Mr. Evans.

Owen is thanked for all the kindness he has shown to Offord, "a mere stranger", and is wished well in his labours to "upheave the old, erroneous and wicked systems and forms of society".
