Letter from Maria D'Espagne to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter D'Espagne writes of being unable to visit Owen since her arrival in London due to "ridiculous obligations" which take up her time.

Discussion is then of the opposition being expressed towards Socialism at South Villa [London, where D'Espagne writes from], with Owen dissuaded from calling there due to the "Prejudice and Artificialism" which, she writes, have "never reigned so powerfully in this country, and equally in this house".
