TitleLetter from William Rowett to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from Liverpool. The letter hopes that Brunel has received Rowett's plans for rigging the large ship and although the amount of sail may seem excessive, Rowett believes that it is not unnecessary and compares it to several steamers now in use, including the City of Baltimore and the Alma, both of which have a rigging conformation that follows Rowett's plans and the Donald McKay, all of which prove the validity of Rowett's ideas.
