TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to H.H. McMinnies
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter thanks McMinnies for his letter about his opinions of negative slip in screw propellers but suggests that McMinnies' opinions are wrong and that negative slip is a misleading term and also that there is not really a perceptible alteration when a screw is used in addition to sail, or at least not one that is different to the effect produced by adding additional sail.
