Secretarial Deputation Journals

Scope and Content

Bound typescript circular letters from individuals on Secretarial Deputations to LMS missionaries and LMS HQ at home, recording observations. From the early nineteenth century the Directors had realised the importance of sending out Deputations of Directors to see how missions were operating in the field. Records from some of these earlier Deputations can be found in the Home and Regional Odds series. From the 1930s, journals relating to Secretarial Deputations were kept as a distinct series. See also printed Deputation Reports.
