TitleCorrespondence between Joseph Chamberlain, as Secretary of State for the Colonies, and the Governor Generals and Governors of the Colonies (excluding South Africa), 1895-1903
DescriptionOfficial sequence of correspondence; it is accompanied by a contemporary register into which brief details of each letter were recorded; the register has divided the correspondence into separate sections for each colonial post (i.e. Governor General or Governor); within these divisions, each item was separately entered and numbered in chronological order; the register entry for each item provides the name of the correspondent, date of document, and a summary of the content; the surviving correspondence has been ordered to reflect this original arrangement; each document (or its wrapper) bears the original filing reference details (name of governorship, year date and the number allocated in the register); the sequence of correspondence is incomplete, and includes some correspondence that is not itemised in the register
