Most of the items are draft working papers and correspondence, but there are also some reports. The documents are written by or relate to various officers of the Corporation, including the Town Clerk, City Solicitor and City Engineer.
While some of the correspondence has references that match it to the Early Correspondence records (Series 00233), most of the correspondence does not. It suggests the early correspondence letters were held with these papers while the issues were being worked on or resolved.
