(1) The statistic $T$ has Poisson($n\lambda$) distribution so the expectation of $\delta(T)$ must involve $n\lambda$: $$E[\delta(T)] = \sum_{t=0}^\infty \delta(t)P(T=t)=\sum_{t=0}^\infty\delta(t)e^{-n\lambda}{(n\lambda)^t\over t!}$$ They then abbreviate $n\lambda$ as $\gamma$ for the sake of saving ink. (2) The equality comes from the line above it (which ...
