Letter from James Patterson to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter from an apparent millennial Christian suggesting that a series of articles headed "Millennium" be inserted into extensively read [news?]papers to prepare the way for the "Comforter". As a poor labourer based in Liverpool, the writer nevertheless defers the spreading of Owen's "Social Tracts" to more able individuals such as John Finch - a Liverpool iron merchant untiring in support of the Owenite cause.
