Letter from Samuel Dewey to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter opening with Owen being thanked for the loan of some ledgers, which Dewey has carefully perused.

Discussion turns to Owen's views and the effect they will soon bring to Society; Dewey writes he "most heartily rejoice[s] that the day is so near at hand [when] UniversalCharity will be the only doctrine taught, or practised throughout this world"; talk of "revolt" - "the pent up miseries of 30 millions out of 35 millions in France will soon find an outlet & so must the sufferings of the masses in England and elsewhere".
