Letter from William Pare to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Pare indicates he has written to Mr Clarke who, he remarks, has an "inventive faculty which, without money capital, is in this chaotic system of Society, rather a curse than a blessing". However, as he also considers him a "good, as well as a clever man" he will offer to help him if able to do so.

Owen is asked if he has heard of the new method in making wrought iron without the aid of fuel as invented by [Henry] Bessemer, which, Pare believes, is "one of the most important inventions of this very innovative century".
