Letter from Ed. Cowper to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter which opens with Cowper discussing the beauty of the Devonshire countryside, but remarking that he feels there are "spots about the Cylde not to be surpassed" and remarking that he would be "very well satisfied" with Motherwell [Scotland]. Cowper adds that he is pleased to hear that Owen has been offered land at Motherwell, but asks if Owen would not be better pleased if the land was his own, rather than being owned by Mr Hamilton.

Cowper asks of Owen's progress in Ireland and if any "Society is formed there...which they will compound with ours".
