Letters from George Cracroft to Robert Owen G. A. Fleming

Scope and Content

In the manuscript letter to Fleming, Cracroft discusses the rise of a new "movement"; the movement, Cracroft writes, is "an urgent necessity for the organisation of Industry being placed in a prominent position before the Working Classes". He continues to explain of the diminishing ill feeling towards "the principles of the Social Reformer [Owen]", before closing by writing that the Committee may make use of him in any way, and stating he is but a poor man but that "all honest social reformers must be in our artificial system of society".

In the manuscript letter to Owen, Cracroft asks does Owen have any link with the "movement" he discusses in the letter to Fleming.
