Note to delete a template, use the API “Delete a Template” transaction.  

Deleting templates (newsletters)  can not be done on the web interface.  

Put the “Template ID in at the end of the URL” and send a http DEL command with the appropriate headers … all done for me by Postman null

The transmission is named 
“A Speak To Me Catalog Mailing”
