TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to Alexander Gordon
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter thanks Gordon for his letter and for making the enquiries on Brunel's behalf but explains that he is resolved, unless he can find an oil gas apparatus that is actually in use, not to experiment with one on the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's ship on the first voyage. Brunel does ask, however, whether Gordon knows if the apparatus used by the asylum in Surrey still exists or if it has been destroyed.
