Treasury: Books of Out-letters to the Admiralty
Treasury letters to the Admiralty, Greenwich Hospital and Trinity House, and other letters on Naval matters, including the slave trade and convict ships. Up to 1877 this series includes letters to the Registrars of the High Court of Admiralty.
The assembly of volumes of handwritten out-letters goes back to the 17th century. From the 1870s when typewriters were used in the Treasury typed copies of letters would be found on the Treasury registered files, and a decision was made in 1958 to destroy copies of Out-Letters from 1920.
