System of Arrangement:
Alphabetically chiefly by the correspondent's name. Correspondence not filed by name is filed by location (eg. towns, districts, rivers, islands, etc.), position (eg. Director of Roads) or a wide variety of other subjects. Some correspondence has been re-arranged into broad subjects such as bridges, land grants, surveyors, roads, esplanades, purchase, rent, schools, timber, tramways, churches and glebes. These have been given their own file number sequence and are listed seperately in those volumes with an index.
