Letter from Thomas Allsop to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

In this manuscript letter Allsop pleads with Owen to associate himself with the "French organisation of Labor". Allsop believes this will enable his recommendations to be seen as an "example" and that "Louis Blanc and Albert (a worker) are far better introductions to the notice of English workmen than Lord Normanby, Clarendon, Palmerston & Co.". Owen's association with the Lords is described as being "injourious"

Owen is asked to write to Pare who plans to return to Ireland despite his business in Dublin not being urgent, and convince him to "come over here".
