Brooklyn Union Argus Sept 20 1898. A Good Fireman.
The New York Review of September 16th has the following to say of William H. DELAHANTY, who has just been assigned as foreman of Engine No. 15,Greenpoint: "One of the most pleasing announcements recorded in these columns in some time is that relating to the reinstatement of Mr. William H.
DELAHANTY, formerly Chief Engineer of the Long Island City Fire Department who was removed last year by ex-Mayor GLEASON. "Mr. DELAHANTY is just the type of man who can with credit to himself and the department fill any position. During his long service he has proved
himself a clear and indefatigable fireman, and all through was seen to be full of resources, reliable in times of peril, alert and thoroughly imbued with the spirit of a true fireman. His excellent record and thorough
acquaintance with the duties of the position were his strongest recommendations. Mr. DELAHANTY is now assigned as foreman of Engine 15, India street, Borough of Brooklyn, where he is certain to render a good account of his charge.
