TitleLetter from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to John Scott Russell
DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter lists various matters connected with 'the ship' which require immediate attention. Particularly Brunel asks after the progress for the apparatus for the experiment on heating steam and expresses his concern at the very long delay and his annoyance at Russell's slowness. The letter also mentions that Brunel is preparing a calculation of the amount of work that has been done on the ship which will not meet Brunel's expectations and he will therefore not be able to recommend the Directors authorise the next payment to Russell.
