TitleLetter from H.H. McMinnies to Isambard Kingdom Brunel
DescriptionWritten from 45 Sloane Street, London. McMinnies describes his opinions for the reasons that cause a phenomenon known as 'negative slip' which he thinks, if they are correct, may alter thinking about the best kind of screw propeller, and may help Brunel in his consideration for the best type of screw propeller to use on the Eastern Steam Navigation Company's ship.
