Letter from R. Franks to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter, discussing the lack of coverage given to Owen's views in the "London Press" where "money is the grand mover"; Owen is induced to give a series of lectures on the "Science of Society" at the London Tavern or Crown and Anchor Tavern, [London].

Franks writes a detailed account of a meeting, at which a discourse was held on the reading of a chapter from [William] Godwin's Political Justice and discusses at length the intention to publish a number of Owen's lectures.
