Letter from Henry Travis to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

This manuscript letter opens with Travis explaining he is in "continuous expectation" of seeing Owen, although he admits to being "delighted" in reading in Owen's recent letter of how "gloriously" their cause is getting on in Huddersfield.

Travis explains that [William] Pare told him that Owen had been arrested, but that he had taken it "coolly" as, if true, he was certain of Owen's ability to turn it to some "beneficial account".

The sales of the Social Reformer newspaper are poor in Birmingham, with Travis certain this is due to the "treatment of it" by the New Moral World newspaper; Travis suggests placing an advertisement in the NMW.

Owen is asked for his advice in the setting-up of a school at the Tytherley Community, an event which is expected to "go ahead immediately".
