ALS, DNA WR RG 107, Presidential Telegrams, I, 288. The date of Butler's telegram requesting ``permission to visit Washington upon personal business to adjust some accounts to get some vouchers and evidence in a suit commenced against me. . . .'' is given as received on January 3 and sent on January 1 (DLC-RTL), but the date January 13 given in the Official Records (I, XLVI, II, 120) seems more probable.
