Manuscript letter, opening with Rigby providing an account of his progress carrying out tasks and errands on Owen's behalf.
The letter continues with Rigby writing he believes the Unions have a "great deal to learn" and the "Dry Bones" [the new society being formed by Travis, Neale etc] are unable to teach them anything, this is in comparison to "[Alexander] Campbell, Allen, Newton and [George] Fleming" who have more influence over them.
Ribgy informs Owen that the Royal British Bank, established by his "old friend" [John MacGregor] has stopped making payments [to shareholders], but Owen's friends will not lose anything as they are depositors and not shareholders.
The "Sunday Band" played for the last time of the season, with over £40 being raised through programme sales in just the one day. Rigby laments "what power the people have if only they knew how to use it".
