This series comprises incoming and outgoing correspondence between the Secretaries at headquarters and the missionaries, agents, government officials and others concerned with affairs in Ceylon.
The documents were originally guarded into box files. The board covers carrying the indexes of the Ceylon file have been lost. There is an index of names [marked 'No.3 Ceylon'] for numbers 1-22 only. The remainder of the items have been numbered by the archivist.
