TitleLetter from C. Claxton to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionThe letter describes the number and weight of anchors and details the chain cables and chains that are carried by a first class Man of War ship and promises to give Brunel more specific details of the anchors when he meets him later on. Claxton also reminds Brunel that when two anchors are let go at the same time, it causes many significant problems. A postscript details where Claxton got some of his information, from Mr Eady, from Somerset House and from the Surveyor's Office, now first Admiralty House.
