Letter from James Rigby to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Rigby explaining that "excessive" heat in London has kept him indoors for a number of days, before he continues to provide an account of his progress carrying out tasks and errands on Owen's behalf.

Rigby remarks that he is afraid Owen's friend Lord Palmerston will not be able to remain as Prime Minister unless he does something "really useful" as his friends are getting tired of this "do nothing".
