Letter from James Rigby to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Rigby provides Owen with an account of the progress he has made with tasks carried out on Owen's behalf - despite not having "anything worth communicating".

Rigby writes of his dismay with those who run newspapers explaining that once he "used to look up to the Editors of Newspapers, now I look down upon them" and had Owen's disciples been up to the mark they could have had all them [the papers] with them, but too many of Owen's disciples are "Dummys".
