ArrangementThe original order of the collection is unknown and it is also unknown when the records were assigned reference numbers and arranged, predominantly, chronologically. This chronological order has been maintained and minimal intellectual rearrangement has taken place to maintain this order within the catalogue. Undated letters have been given probable dates and catalogued in the appropriate order. Letter enclosures have been crossed referenced with their accompanying documents (where known) and catalogued immediately following the accompanying record (rather than the date written) to reflect the documents physical order and administrative use.
