Letter from William Offord to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Offord writes of his return to the United States from Britain and of delivering Owen's works to a number of individuals across the North-Eastern states. Offord, a Shaker, has returned to New Lebanon, New York, and has taken his son Daniel and daughter Emily to live with him. A number of Owen's letters and publications were given to Frederick Evans [the elder of the community] and Offord notes they were "kindly" received.
