  • 1. The nature of the present record is simply that of a diary or note book in which the Secretary of the Treasury kept a precis of all warrants or orders signed at the Treasury day by day. All the items therefore ought to occur consistently in the present Calendar. But this is by no means the case. Many items duplicate with the entries under the same date either in the text matter (pp. 431 seq. supra) or in the tabular matter (pp. 572 seq. supra). Such duplicate entries when they occur on the same day are here omitted. The existence of the remaining items which do not so duplicate proves that either an Order Book or a General Money Book (probably the former), for the period covered by this Entry Book, has disappeared.
