Excerpt from The Screw Propeller; Who Invented It?: With Illustrations

Now, from the great interest Sir John Sinclair took in this matter, and from his having received a letter on the subject from the Duke of Richmond, and from the circumstance of my finding, in my letter-book, my correspondence with him and Sir Thomas Dick Lauder on the subject of your invention, but no letter to Captain Elliot, I am inclined to think that the papers must have been transmitted to the Admiralty either by Sir John Sinclair, or by Admiral Fleming; to the latter of whom, as shown by the letter you send me from the Admiralty of 18th September, 1833, they would appear to have been returned along with the report by the Officers of the Woolwich Dockyard.

I have written to the present Secretary to the Admiralty, the letter, of which copy is enclosed, requesting him to furnish me with another copy of that report, and if I get it you may depend on my forwarding it to you.

I should be exceedingly well pleased to see your merits recognised as the original inventor of the Screw Propeller.
