Letter from William Bromley to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Bromley cannot pay his bills; he faces prison unless the Association remunerates him for "the fixtures." He fears being branded a "dishonest character" and begs Owen "not to turn a deaf ear." Bromley complains that fixtures have "literally disappeared under the new management"; he notes that the situation is "very unpleasant" for Mrs. Bromley: "trades people calling for trifling sums, and the servants applying for their wages in vain."
