A clerical error in endorsement of Voucher no. 64 having occurred I have to request that you will cause the sum together with my General. account Current & abstract of disbursements for 1st Quarter 1854 to be returned to me for correction.

The expenditures during the month of March are entered on each statement as $2255.77—and the balance on hand as $2070.21—it should be $2355.27 and the balance on hand $1970.21. If not sent in please have it corrected or returned to me.

I remain Very resply. Yr. obt SrvtSigned/ R. E. Lee Br. Col:
