Letter from William Pare to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter, William Pare apologises to Robert Owen that neither himself nor Mr Smith will be able to travel to Paris to see the invention Owen had previously spoken about. Pare states that although it is difficult for him to know all the obstacles that face the Provisional Government of France, he believes that replacing competition with co-operation will rely on establishing a perfect National currency accompanied by National Wholesale Depots for the occupation of goods. Pare asks Owen for a copy of his views, recently published in French. He also informs Owen that he has written to a number of people to make them aware of Owen's views.
