Letter from T. Baker to Robert Owen, care of John Walker

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Baker requests that Owen visit Wigan and "if possible deliver a course [of lectures] to us". He complains that there are 'parties among the middle classes...whom we cannot induce to visit us', but informs Owen that 'they should be very glad to hear you.'

W. Leadbetter explains that the Committee are making arrangements for "a lecture before the year closes", but complains that the District and Central Boards are treating the matter in "a rather neglectful manner". Leadbetter writes that a visit "by anyone in person would place our society...in a most flourishing condition".
