TitleLetter from Henry Wollaston Blake to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from 8 Loundes Street. The letter agrees with Brunel's previous letter about the sizes and strengths of the boiler being designed for the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's proposed great ship and explains that Watt & Co's practice is to be even more cautious than Brunel suggests. Blake promises that he is having drawings made of their proposed boilers and requests some drawings that Brunel promised him to enable Blake to finish his designs.
