TitleCorrespondence between Joseph Chamberlain and the Governor and the High Commissioner of South Africa, 1895-1903
DescriptionOfficial sequence of correspondence, accompanied by a contemporary register into which the brief details of letters were recorded; the register has divided the correspondence into two sections, one for the Governor of Natal and Cape Colony and the other for the High Commissioner of South Africa; 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 colonial office, year date and the number allocated in the register); it should be noted, however, that a small quantity of associated unregistered material was located amongst the letters in this sequence, and has remained in the sequence as found
