Query - GAR Potomac Department circulars

I am having difficulty locating any Department of the Potomac, Grand Army of the Republic circulars - specifically one from March 25 1901. Does anyone have advice? I have consulted the encampment proceedings for 1901 and 1902 and did not find it. The GAR records project shows nothing on DC for DC. It is referenced in Adjutant General records at NARA but no copy was included.
