TitleMemorandum for Mr Jacomb signed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter requests Jacomb retry the colouring of the ship model as Brunel describes in a sketch. The letter requests Jacomb, if he has not already done so, to try an experiment for blowing off steam through wire gauze and suggests some alterations to the form of the experiment and reminds Jacomb that Brunel still wants the calculation of the centre of gravity.
There is a sketch on Folio 317 illustrating Brunel's points about the colouring of the ship.
