Scope and Content

Two letters, one from Travis and one from Thomas Allsop.

Travis writes of hearing of little of Owen's "doings" in Paris, except for the "imperfect information" carried in the Globe newspaper. He remarks he has great faith in Owen's abilities.

In his letter Allsop writes of the "very great alarm" prevailing [in London]. He states that apprehension is felt for the "peace of the country generally", not least due to the willingness of the middle-classes to sign-up to be Special Constables. He closes by noting his wish to be sat aside Owen in Paris.
