Letter from Geo[rge]. L. Mendell to Robert Owen

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter carrying news from Mendell's home city of Edinburgh. A recent fire across from the Black Bull pub saw 50 families "burned out" of their homes, whilst for the past fortnight a severe storm of frost and snow has been affecting the city. Mendell writes he received the package containing the pantaloons, coat and vest and they have been hung up to stop them getting crumpled; the "Tin Box" was also brought from Mr Simpson.

Places to stay are recommended to Owen when he visits Edinburgh.
