Letter from David Vines to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Vines informs Owen of the preparations taking place for the public discussion between Owen and Legg, including the attainment of the town hall as the venue and Dr. Cowan's acceptance to chair the meeting. Advertisements have also been placed in the local newspapers, though Vines accuses the Berkshire Chronicle of having been up to "their old tricks again in omissions and alterations."

The letter ends with Owen being informed that Mrs. Vines has not been well, due to the recent death of their serving girl.

Accompanying the letter is also a small rectangular card that holds the particulars for the public discussion between Owen and Legg, due to be held on 6th March.
