Scope and content/abstract:

Letter from Mr Pitkethley of Huddersfield, [West Riding, Yorkshire] to Francis Place of Charing Cross, [London], 19 Oct 1832. Covering note to 2 copies of a pamphlet by Joseph Wood Right of Labour to legislative protection ... (1832). Asking Place 'if he approves of the principle of the work, to use his influence to favor [sic] its circulation.' Autograph, with signature. Including an autograph draft of Place's reply, 28 Oct 1832. '... I hope you will return Mr. Wood to Parliament, if he can be returned at all, he may be returnd [sic] free of expense, by proper arrangements which the electors are bound to make. Mr. Wood seems to me to be a sincere well wisher to the working people, and therefore commands my respect ... A session or two in Parliament would probably lead him to revise his opinions. I am sure he is able and I conclude he is honest, and consequently ... will not fail to entertain them'. [Joseph Wood was not, in fact, elected in 1832.]
