Doc. 24.-letter of Cornelius Vanderbilt. New York, May 14, 1861. Dear sir:--Being informed that you are about making a visit to Washington, I take the liberty of asking the favor of you to lay before the Government the enclosed proposition, which I addressed to the Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy, under date ohorized to renew this proposition, with such additions thereto as are hereinafter set forth. I feel a great desire that this Government should have the steamer Vanderbilt, as she is acknowledged to be as fine a ship as floats the ocean, and, in consequence of her great speed and capacity, that, with a proper armament, she would b; and also, to make it known, that there are vessels of a capacity to meet all their requirements, which can be obtained without resorting to those belonging to citizens of the so-called Confederate States, or to those sailing under a foreign flag. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, C. Vanderbilt. W. O. Bartlett, Esq.
