|Title||Letter from John Scott Russell to Isambard Kingdom Brunel|
|Description||Written from 37 Great George Street, Westminster, London. The letter regrets Brunel's previous letter since Russell had thought that a conversation with Brunel had closed the issue and Russell now has to break off his work at the shipyard to answer Brunel's letter. Russell is adamant about his concern as to the weight of the ship and his satisfaction that his calculations as to the weight of the ship are correct and regrets that Brunel is not satisfied. Russell mentions that he had hoped to have seen Brunel over the weekend so that they might have talked things over. |
There is a piece of paper with a pencil note reading 'Payments' pasted into the margin beside the last paragraph of the letter with an ink annotation reading "This paper was found in this page" written beside it.
