Incoming correspondence from missionaries in Matabeleland and South Africa to the London Missionary Society headquarters. For details of the correspondence from each region, see separate descriptions (sub-series).
Detailed cataloguing has been completed at file level for Matabeleland, 1835-1899, and South Africa, 1797-1899. Catalogue entries provide the names of correspondents, dates, places, and in some cases a summary of the subject matter. Letters for the later period have yet to be catalogued.
