Letter from Jane D. Fauntleroy to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Fauntleroy acknowledging receipt of a £25 loan from Owen; she immediately paid her rent, [staff] wages, schooling, private lessons as she earlier indicated she would. She thanks Owen for the money and hopes to repay the loan by Christmas, by which time her "own check" will have arrived.

Discussion turns to the growing cost of living in Stuttgart, where Fauntleroy presently resides, explaining she believes this is caused "the flocking in of strangers" and also the "rapid ? by rial and road to Paris and other cities".

The letter closes with chat about the health and well being of Fauntleroy's children.
