Introduction

Outward Despatch and Letter Books

From the 1830's until around the time of the First World War, Government records were kept in large copybooks.  All outward letters and despatches were copied into letter books.   

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.
