Letter from J. P. Culverwell to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with discussion of Culverwell's writings for pamphlets and publications; he asks Owen's opinion on the manuscript he wrote on 'Responsibility' passed to Owen by Lloyd Jones; writes of his intention of publishing an article in the New Moral World on Charles Fourier the French Socialist - notes of reading articles suggesting that Fourier made an application [for support] to Owen, but was rebuffed.

Culverwell closes by writing of the popularity of Socialism in Manchester; he writes it is "steadily advancing" among the "middle classes - Even confirmed christians", but notes that they have "not yet got one influential active person who is extensively known as wealthy"; if they are unable to gain this support he tells Owen "we must succeed without them".
