Letter from Robert Pemberton to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter making reference to a Panorama being exhibited by one of Owen's "old disciples" Thomas Atkins of Oxford. Pemberton expresses feeling great pleasure in seeing the Panorama and proceeds to give some ideas of what he believes should be displayed upon the Panorama, particularly in terms of education. Owen's infant schools at New Lanark should be the starting point, followed by the self supporting establishments with education facilities attached which Owen developed and then finally Pemberton's own Happy Colony.
