BRAMAH, John Joseph (1798-1846). Ironmaster and Engineer.
Autograph Letter Signed to Jones, 3 pages 8vo, Grosvenor Works, Pimlico, 8 November 1836. A strongly reproachful letter concerning the failure to deliver some wrought iron which has delayed an important commission involving the Cubitt engineering firm.
'I have been called upon today to answer to Messrs Cubitt for the non delivery of the wrought iron top rails ... the impression upon their minds is that I am deceiving them by which I am sure you will feel that nothing could be more unfortunate than my first trusting this order into your hands ... had I given the order to any other ... not only would the rails have been delivered long ago but 40 tons of railing that has been upon the ground for months would have been fixed and paid for. ...'
John Joseph Bramah (1798-1846) was the nephew of the inventor and engineer Joseph Bramah. He left an iron-founding partnership formed with his cousins Francis and Edward in 1832 to set up his own business. Together with George and Robert Stephenson, he created a substantial railway equipment business at Pimlico, London.
