Letter from James Bridges to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Bridges informs Owen of his intention to visit New Lanark. He writes: "you were very good as to ask us [James & Mrs. Bridges] to Braxfield; but we know to what degree you are beset with visitors, that we beg you to use no ceremony in allowing us to remain at Lanark." Bridges requests that "permission to visit your establishment in your absence" is left at "the inn at the head of the town."
