System of arrangement
The numbers assigned to the volumes of correspondence by the creator have been retained in the archival numbering system. If any of the missing volumes are subsequently acquired they will therefore be easily fitted into the system of arrangement.
Within each volume, correspondence is filed in reverse chronological order and (mostly) in alphabetical order for each day.
