Transcription

Dear Mr. Denby:

Pray pardon my tardiness in responding to what you said a few weeks ago, when you were good enough to present to the Department a very ingenious device for the ciphering and deciphering of despatches which Mr. Brandes, of Detroit, had invented and had been so kind as to wish to present to the Department. It will be brought to the attention of those who handle the Department's cipher.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

[signature]

Honorable Edwin Denby,
House of Representatives.
