Letter from Charles Howarth to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Howarth has been directed by "the branch" to remind Owen of his pledge that he gave in regards to visiting Rochdale, and asks whether Owen can visit once his trip to Huddersfield is over. He states that the public are "continually inquiring" when Owen will visit.

Howarth states that a visit from Owen would be of great benefit to the branch, which has struggled over the past 12 months to gain support from the public, but have made progress with the working classes. He believes a visit from Owen would raise their profile further and maybe increase support from the middle and higher classes.
