According to http://www.facebook.com/help.php?page=824 you are unable to retrieve chat logs from a while back. You're able to retrieve recent chats though by just opening up that chat window.

See screen shot for more information.

If you use Digsby, the chat logs are stored on your local drive. Here's the website if you need it.
