Letter from John Henry to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Henry informs Owen he and "a few friends desirous of aiding the labouring classes to emancipate themselves from monopoly and competition, and we trust from poverty and misery have taken premises in Finsbury Sq. for the purpose of carrying out the principles of Labour Exchange."

He states that the success of this enterprise will depend on the internal management of the establishment and the needed support from the operatives themselves, which he hopes "will not be wanting."

A post script states: "J H will be happy to see Mr Owen at Finsbury Square any time he will appoint."
