Letter from Eliza Fletcher to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter, opening with discussion of previous letter set by Owen, in which he should have enclosed a letter from Mr [John] Walker but omitted from doing so.

Fletcher writes of previously requesting Owen to recommend to Mr Walker a boy named James Atkinson from Wakefield who is the son of Mr Robert Atkinson. Atkinson Snr. has hit upon hard times and cannot keep his five sons in "a suitable condition"; hopes that Mr Walker can admit Thomas to Christ's Hospital (educational facility).
