Letter from Andrew Carlisle to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Carlisle stating he is one of few "in his condition" who think well of Owen's social theories, but that struggles to see how these will manifest themselves practically. He writes that he cannot "comprehend their practical adoption without deteriorating the more profound yet useful vocations" and calls for "a clear plain exposition of the certain benefits to the whole community".
