Among the special letters sent to him, if he had important documents, he would keep them in his own safe, and the remaining letters were placed in the files by his assistants, after the President, by the Kâtib-i Umumi (Secretary General) and the Chief of the Special Pen.

Thus, a file and number number were given to the letters sent to Atatürk and placed in the cabinets.
