Letter from Thomas Wayland to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Wayland references a previous letter which he sent to Owen some 17 years earlier when he was a barrister in training at Lincoln's Inn Field, London. Now he lives in Georgia, United States where he lives in "a good deal of isolation" and where he met a gentleman who had all numbers of the issues of Owen's paper the Crisis.

Wayland continues, detailing at length his thoughts on the revolution occurring in France. He believes there has been "no social revolution" in America, but he expects one in France and this, he says, will be a "real beginning".
