Secretaries of State: State Papers Foreign, Portugal
Mainly in-letters to the Secretary of State from the English (later British) ambassadors, envoys, and ministers to the Kingdom of Portugal.
The majority of the letters are dated at Lisbon, the capital, but the series includes despatches from the consulates at Lisbon, Oporto and Madeira. A few early papers are dated at Gibraltar and in Spain. Also in the series are many draft replies by the Secretary of State, a number of petitions, royal letters, and some intercepted despatches. There are also a few printed papers.
The records are generally arranged in chronological order, though there is some overlapping of dates, and the series ends with miscellaneous supplementary papers.
