In response to an inquiry about a presidential appointment, Delahay writes from Leavenworth, Kansas Territory, that it was too soon to bother the president elect with such matters. When the time came, perhaps in April or May, Delahay believes President Lincoln would treat Kansas Territory fairly and might "consult his friends in Kansas and I may be one of them . . . I have been an old friend of Mr. Lincoln and he is a relative of my wife." (This is identified as a "circular letter," so perhaps it was mailed to a number of individuals with similar interests.)
