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.

Re: Query: Civil War veterans 19th century access to service records

Matthew,
I'm not 100 percent sure what you are after--for what purpose were the military records being sought? However, at some point in the late-19th century (I don't have "when" available off-hand), the federal government employed clerks to copy Union army service records (which had originally been created in the field, often in less than ideal circumstances) in order to improve the records which were key to adjudicating pension applications. Perhaps your person was one of the people so employed.
