Letter from Henry McCormac to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter McCormac is critical of opinions which Owen offered at a meeting held on the 20th October. McCormac outlines in detail his thoughts on Owen's views on the formation of character of individuals, the class system, social reform and co-operation, and discusses at length his own theories on these subjects. Despite clear differences of opinion McCormac still views Owen as an "agent of a large amount of good to our fellow man", and informs Owen that "Cooperation is becoming more known in Ireland. Good Cooperators however are scarce"
