Letter from David Vines to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter: Vines informs Owen of preparations surrounding the publication of the debate between Owen and Legg, including the amount of copies to be printed and the retail price.

He then states that handbills have been circulating around Reading calling on inhabitants to subscribe to some form of testimonial to Legg "for his wonderful defence of the Gospel." Those against Legg are unwilling to voice their opinion due to the fear of losing their jobs.
