TitleLetter from Professor C. Piazzi Smyth to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from the Hotel de la Marine, Rue Gaillon, Paris. The letter explains that Smyth is so affected by Brunel's concern for the time that the project is taking that he is considering dashing back to Scotland for an update on the progress with the instruments. Smyth also updates Brunel on a recent conversation he had with Mr Cooke, the son of the man manufacturing their instrument in York, who gave a report on the progress with the instrument and explains how long Smyth hopes the instrument will take to complete.
