Introduction

Outward Despatch and Letter Books – B and G Series

From the 1840's until after World War II all outward despatches were copied into letter books.   

The B series of volumes consist of thirty volumes and commence with Governor Moody.  They cover the period 24 July 1841 to 31 December 1906.

The G series of volumes consist of twenty-nine volumes.  Volumes G1 to G4 are duplicates of the early B series and cover the period 30 April 1842 to 11 November 1852.  Volume G5 holds copies of enclosures for the period 26 November 1890 to 26 December 1903.  Volumes G6 to G29 cover the period 22 August 1905 to 31 December 1947.

It should be noted that these volumes are scanned in the order they have been written and are not necessarily in date order and a number of the books have numbering errors.  To reduce handling and unnecessary stress on the volumes blank pages have not been scanned and not all pages are legible either due to fading or damage.

NB: Work on scanning these volumes is ongoing.
