293 Broadway, New York
Nov. 8th, 1866

To: His Excellency Reuben E. Fenton
Governor of S.N.Y.

Governor,

I take pleasure in recommending for the position of "Engineer in Chief" on your Staff, Genl. Chas. W. Darling, C.G.S., a gentleman imminently qualified for the position and in the discharge of its duties will command (as he does in his present one) the esteem and respect of those doing business with him.

His appointment will give pleasure to a number of your friends and to none more than to,

Your Obt. Servt.
Wm. De Lacy
B[reve]t. Brig. General of Vols.

There is a small rust spot at upper right from where an old paper clip once was, and there is an old mounting remnant on the reverse. Fine recommendation letter written to Governor Fenton of New York by this gallant New York officer who was wounded three times during the Civil War.
