Letter from John Yates, secretary of the Eastern Steam Navigation Company, to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Written from The Eastern Steam Navigation Company at 13 Gresham Street, London. The letter encloses a copy of a resolution passed by a meeting of the Court of Directors of the Eastern Steam Navigation Company. The resolution determines to appoint a candidate who will constantly superintend the building of the great ship and the engines and regularly report back to the Directors. The letter hopes that Brunel will recommend someone for this purpose. A postscript mentions the correspondence with the South Wales Railway company regarding the potential for choosing Milford Haven as the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's port of departure.
7 August 1854
