Letter from Henry Travis to Robert Owen

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with discussion regarding the content and printing of a Manifesto.

Discussion moves to a performance by the "Wizard" Anderson witnessed by Travis, and at which bells and other objects were placed or suspended in different parts of the house and from them he was able to obtain "any number of raps he asks for". In a similar scenario recently played out in New York, Anderson offered 200 dollars to any "medium" capable of doing similar by a "spiritual way"; all who accepted the challenge failed.
