Letter from William Pare to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter, William Pace tells Robert Owen that he is clearing away numerous difficulties, which have prevented him selling the Smith Works.

Also, Pace is glad to hear that Owen is writing his autobiography but he hopes Owen will be able to fully use the book to spread the truth about the national system of society,. Pare warns that to be successful, the book must be entertaining as well as instructive. As an example, he praises Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, which Pace believes has been more influential on the issue of American slavery than all the philosophical formal treatises put together.
