TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to John Yates, secretary of the Eastern Steam Navigation Company
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, London. The letter apologises that, since Brunel is a witness in a case being heard before committee in the House of Lords, he may not be able to meet Yates and sends him the letters from Watt & Co and John Scott Russell accepting the conditions that they must take shares in the Eastern Steam Navigation Company as part of the contract to build the engines for the company's ship. The letter also updates Yates on other matters relating to payment and asks about the next steps.
