DescriptionThe original papers comprise all incoming papers sent by the mission secretary or by the missionaries to Group Committee. They consist mainly of letters and reports.
ArrangementThey are numbered [in red ink] for each year [1 January]. The date of receipt is noted and often the initials of Secretaries and other headquarters staff dealing with the material. Some items, notably finance correspondence, were removed as soon as as they had been entered on the precis, others were removed in the normal course of administrative work. Usually in these cases a note of the number of the item, plus of initials of the staff member and the department, remains in the packet.
