Letter from Samuel Cornish to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter refers to a lecture delivered by Owen the previous Sunday evening; Cornish opens by writing of his admiration for the lecture, describing it as a "masterpiece", before entering into prolonged discussion on a point of which he is "not satisfied": that being "is it necessary that a President should be permanently appointed to rule over the Elders in Community? - if so would you give him any power"?
