Washington, D.C. 1874 April 30. Addressed to Secretary of War, William W. Belknap. In full: "My dear Secretary: The enclosed letter is from Benjamin Tatham, of New York, a large dealer in lead and lead pipe, a very intelligent and very honorable man, and a sincere friend of the administration. He is a Quaker and a very thorough business man. I have thought it due to you that I should enclose this letter (Though I have no idea that Mr. Tatham supposed I would do so.) because it has occurred to me that there may be suggestions in it which you would be glad to receive. You will observe that it is written in the kindest spirit towards the administration and everybody connected with it. After reading the letter will you please return it? I am very sincerely yours" Columbus Delano (1809-1896, Shoreham, Vermont) was a member of the United States' Delano political family.

Grant's Secretary of the Interior from 1870 to 1875. A Union brigadier general in the Civil War, William Worth Belknap (1829-1890) became President Grant's Secretary of War on October 25, 1869.
