Stephen Pearl Andrews "converts"

"Literary," The Independent, 3, 111 (January 16, 1851), 16.

"Mr. S. P. Andrews has become a convert to what purports to be a New Theory of Society, discovered by Mr. Josiah Warren, of Indiana, formerly of New Harmony. To exhibit the system, he has commenced a series, or periodical issue of pamphlets, under the title of "The Science of Society: The New Constitution of Government, in the Sovereignty of the Individual, as the Final Development of Protestantism, Democracy, and Socialism." We opine he will have some hard problems to solve before he succeeds in converting the people to his doctrine, that "Cost is the scientific limit of Price," instead of value, now recognized as the true measure of price.
