Letter from Alex Campbell to Robert Owen

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter which refers to Mr [Robert] Pemberton and his publication The Happy Colony. Campbell writes that whilst reading the book has given him "great pleasure", the expense and style of the publication form a barrier "to those for whose improvement it is mainly intended" - the working classes of England; a penny weekly paper, neatly printed, and under the editorial of Owen would be a much more amenable format, Campbell believes.
