The Gazette reads ``W.P. Mangum, of N. Carolina,'' but this supposed error is corrected in the Journal. Actually both men served as ``president pro tempore of the Senate'' following Tyler's elevation: King, March 4-11, 1841, and Mangum, May 31, 1842---March 3, 1845. Samuel L. Southard of New Jersey served between the two.
