Scope and Content
The letters have been arranged in chronological order. Those without a clear date, or where the date is an estimate, have been placed at the end following the chronological sequence. The other items have been placed after the letters.
When the collection was received, there was no logical order to the letters, but they had been given a numerical sequence. The numbers used have been appended as 'Former reference' below. There are rough transcripts of many of the letters, and the transcripts have been numbered according to this earlier numerical sequence.
