This is a letterbook of copies of the legal documents issued under the Lieutenant-Governor's authority and not normally published in the Gazette
they include commissions of appointment, bonds for the due discharge of official duties involving the handling of public money, precepts appointing jurymen, warrants of appointment, licences (e.g., to publish newspapers or to distil spirits)
also Royal Commissions for the appointment of high officers (e.g., Attorney-General, Crown Solicitor). Occasionally a file registration number (from CSO 1) is quoted, but there is no index.
These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
