Letter from James Patterson to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter requesting Owen's advice and written support for a group of "working men" concerned about the colonisation of the Republic of Texas by force. Seeing "little hope of [Owen's] system being soon adopted in this country in consequence of the ignorance and prejudice of the people generally...", the group hoped to raise support and money in order to take direct action against this perceived wrong.
