Correspondence of Henry L. Pratt

Scope and Content

Series of letters giving particular insight as to the progress made by Pratt and his associates in setting-up a co-operative society in the Potteries district. The relationship between the Unions and the newly formed society is discussed, along with the need for Owen to back the venture for it be be successful. This is despite Pratt's initial unwillingness to emphasise the part played by Owen in influencing their plans as he is fearful of alienating some members of the Unions, particularly those who follow Methodism and those working as Overlookers.
