Letter from William Pare to Robert Owen

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Pare writes of his wish to discuss what should be done with Owen's papers following his death. It would seem a previous agreement had been made whereby following Owen's death the papers would be passed in a Trust to Robert Dale Owen, Dr Henry Travis and Pare himself. Pare would now like a formal legal agreement confirming this, so that he can carry out a task "so sacred, so important...and likely to give an impulse to the great cause".
