TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to John Scott Russell
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter debates whether there is any other financial arrangement with Messers Martin except the one that Brunel names but which he alleges is invalid since Russell has failed to keep up the expected rates of work. Brunel then reminds Russell that he and Brunel discussed how much Russell could expect in the form of additional payment and argues that he cannot recommend any further payments to Russell since even those payments may have to be modified due to lower than expected rates of work.
There is a pencil annotation in the first line of text, possible indicating an error in the copying of the letter.
