I am very sorry to find by your letter that you have had so much trouble with Messrs Bramah <1> about the Water Engine, or rather the experimental model which they made

They have changed a great deal too much, and one of the Partners whom I saw on the subject a long time ago, agreed that the price should be reduced

If you will therefore have the goodness to send me their Acct I will see them on the business and make such an arrangement, as I am sure will be satisfactory to you

I am Sir Your very obed Srt
Henry Harrison
