Letter from L. R. Marsden to Robert Owen

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter opening with discussion of the King of Bavaria arriving in Naples, and of Marsden has spending 3 evenings "in his society". The King is described as a man with very "simple manners" one who lacks the ornate adornments as with many men of rank, and is able to address each person in their particular language; this clearly providing the him with great pleasure.

Discussion turns to "investigations with the table" [Spiritualism], and in particular the events occurring one evening with Marsden, Robert [Dale Owen] and Mrs Owen present, which saw the table predict that Mrs Owen had placed a leaf in her pocket.
