TitleLetter from Samuel Carpmael to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from 4 Old Square, Lincolns Inn, London. The letter informs Brunel that Carpmael has found the original patent filed by Sir Marc Brunel relating to improvements in Marine Engines and sends Brunel a copy and explains that he does not have the accompanying drawing but is organising for a copy to be sent to Brunel and hopes that it will help in Brunel's dispute with three American inventors who wish to patent their later design for a similar device. The letter also passes on William Carpmael's opinion that the engine governor is a wonderful invention and he is pleased that Brunel is publicising its invention to the world and a suggestion that Brunel see if is possible to publish all of his father's inventions.
