Letter from William Henry Dietz to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter accompanying a Bill [of Exchange] for £116 1s 11d from Messrs. Gales and Seating [Seaton]. Dietz explains there was a long delay in getting the "note" settled, and only through a friend in Washington were they finally able to get the money; the friend explained "the parties were insolvent and did not pretend to pay their debts" and considered getting the money "a miracle".
