Letter from J. Macaulay to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Macaulay puts forward his fellow Oldham resident George Connard as a strong candidate for appointment as one of Owen's [Social] Missionaries [for the Association of All Classes of All Nations]. Macaulay believes some of the current Missionaries are having some success in "spreading a broad truth", but he thinks others have "roughly handled the prejudices which it is the interest of all to conciliate". He notes that Connard is "eminently qualified" to be of a more conciliatory nature in his duties. (Connard was later appointed Social Missionary for the Wigan district).
