TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to Messers Martin & Co of Lombard Street, London
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, London. The letter reiterates Brunel's understanding of a conversation with the firm relating to the potential alteration to the payment terms of the contract between the Eastern Steam Navigation Company and John Scott Russell which would serve not to increase the financial burden on the company overmuch but would provide John Scott Russell with a more frequent, secure rate of payment. Brunel also recounts various discussions he had with Russell on the same subject and reiterates his understanding that, based on the terms Brunel might recommend to the Directors, Martin & Co would be prepared to assist John Scott Russell in securing his business until the end of the Eastern Steam project.
