This is a companion series to CSO11, and the same general remarks as to subject coverage given under that series apply equally to this. Certain areas of administration are, however, more fully documented here than in CSO11. The day-to-day administration of the convict system (insofar as the Colonial Secretary was responsible for it) is inherited from the "Record Branch" (CSO16), as also is the function of inter-colonial relations. No index for this series has been found. Copies of outward letters are bound. The registration series is 1-1284, and no volumes are know to be missing. A card index to this series has been compiled.
