Letter from N[icholas] P[hilip] Trist to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter, in which Trist declares that he is looking forward to their meeting next month and asks Owen visits to the Golden Cross Hotel [Charing Cross, London], where he will find a parcel, sent by Trist's daughter Pattie, waiting for him.

He informs Owen that his family are currently separated. Trist has bought land in New Jersey, where he intends to grow crops that he will sell at the local market. But there is currently no accommodation for the family to reside, so his wife and daughter are staying with his brother in Louisiana.

Trist states that he has read the September issue of Owen's journal and was gratified to read that Owen promises to write his autobiography. Trist requests that Owen send a copy of the September issue to Auguste Comte, whom resides in Paris.
