Letter from James Lindsay to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter James Lindsay informs Robert Owen that his detractors' have not made the "smallest inroad upon the New Classification of Society," and in fact have only helped to show their own ignorance of the system. Lindsay does concede that their ignorance may be based on the fact that the phraseology used "is not so precise or scientific as to mark its exact character." If this could be rectified then it might help to ease doubts, and Lindsay offers some suggestions.
