The visit of Gen. D. W. Flagler, chief
of ordnance.to the tri-cltiee last month la
well remi mbered, cf course, and also the
fact that the Business Men's association
of Davenport adopted and transmitted to
Gen. Flagltr a series of highly compli
mentary resolutions touching himself and
Rock Island arsenal. Test 3rd ay Secre
tary H. T. Denison of the Business Men's
association received to following letter:
Ordnance Offlee, War Department.
Wasbineton. D. C, Nov. 9. 1891. Mr.
Henty T. Denison, secretary of the Dav
enport Business Mm's association, Dav
tvport, Iowa. Sir: I thank you for
jour kindness in sending me a copy of
the resolutions adopted by vour associa
tion on the 87 h. ult. The resolutions
are, 1 fear. 3 at ring, yet I am touched
by, and fcpfitcia.e, and am gratrful for
tbe treat kiudntsi and confidence ex
pressed in them.
It is needless for me to say that I have
not, and shall never, lose my Interest In,
and faith in tbe nectsoity for, the work at
the Rock Island arenal; nor my affection
for the place and its neighboring cities
In answtr to one of the resolutions 1
would state that it is not practicable to
accomplish at once all that thainiere ts
of the service aud county require, both in
the cnmtiletion and utilization of ibe
arsenal, but it will not be neglected.
It should not, however, be forgotten
that the arsenal, as it is construced, is
d signed to meet an imperative want
wtiicb was develop, d in our last ar,
under our peculiar military system. It
ii especially intended for arming and
equipping our volunteer armies as fast as
they can be raised. Hence its extraor
dinary magnitude. It cannot, therefore,
be more than pr'illy ntilizr.rl and r,. r
atioss of the great magnitude for which
it is intended will not be called for except
in time of, or in preparation for war.
Will you please express to the associa
tion my thanks for, and appreciation f
their resolutions and of the association's
kindness to me during my very pleasant
visit to Davenport. Respectfully.
D. W. Flagler.
Brig. Gen. Chief of Ordnance.
