Letter from John Henry to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Henry refers to a circular issued by The Operative Rope-Makers, which is attached to the letter, whom state that in order to make themselves independent of their "oppressors" have become manufacturers themselves. But in order for them to survive as a body they need subscriptions from their supporters.

Henry supports the idea of workers labouring for themselves and wishes to see this example spread elsewhere in the country.
