Letter from G. F. Mandley to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter opening with Mandley writing of his pleasure of hearing that Owen will deliver a lecture in his home town of Salford on the subject of Labour Exchanges. On hearing the news he relayed it to the teachers at the "Cooperative School [Salford]" who, he notes, "are the only efficient Cooperators at present".

Mandley continues, discussing at length the teachers dedication to Owen, but writes of debt preventing them making the necessary arrangements for Owen's visit; Owen is asked to make clear if he requires the teachers to pay for rooms for him. Further details of the preparations for Owen's visit follow.
