Scope and content

Series consists of copies of letters sent outward by the City Clerk, mostly communications ordered by Council.

Because the letters were bound chronologically, access is most effective using the alphabetical indexes to the letterbooks. Indexes for 1870 to 1893 are bound in at the beginning of the corresponding letterbooks, providing an alphabetical listing of names of correspondents, whether persons or organizations. Independent indexes providing similar listings are available for 1894 to 1973 (CR-0010), although these indexes also provide in addition a note on the topic of each letter. Subject access can also be obtained through the topical index (CR-0015), which covers the period from 1914 to 1974.

The series is relatively complete, with only a few gaps within years from 1902 to 1908. The first two letterbooks cover 1 April 1870 to 7 April 1873 and 31 March 1870 to 10 June 1875 respectively. The latter volume covers mostly mid 1873 to 1875 but there is still considerable overlap.
