Manuscript letter advising Owen that his planned visit to Oxford to view progress on the "Panorama" are unsatisfactory at present. This is due to Thomas Atkins [the designer of the Panorama] and the Mr Storey [the artist employed to paint the Panorama] both being away from Oxford. Atkins is ill and has taken to "more elevated ground" 3 miles from Oxford.
Campbell writes of his interest in a visit made to Owen by the author [John Pemberton] of "The Happy Colony"; asks Owen to forward Pemberton's details, so he may correspond with a man "who is struggling for the realization of the Same Noble Plan for the elevation of humanity" as they.
Loose with the letter are 2 items, neither of which are referred to in the letter; a cutting taken from the Oxonian Advertiser and Family Newspaper, which consists of a letter written by Thomas Atkins on the subject of "Gas Light" in Oxford; a notice for a Dr W. Washington Evans' "Potent Remedy For Cholera".
