TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to W. Carpmael
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter explains that Brunel visited the Rolls Chapel Office but could not find a copy of the patent registered by his father for Improvements for a Marine Engines and asks if Carpmael can have one of his clerks find the patent and let Brunel know since it is worth the expense for him not to have to leave his work to conduct the search himself. The letter describes the title and mentions that the original patent application included several drawings. Brunel also gives the latest possible date for the patent and explains that in that year, an engine was built by the firm of Maudslay and Fields that was based on that patent.
