Scope and content

Sub-series consists of an incomplete collection of numbered central registry files combining the incoming correspondence of the Department, arranged by file number within each year. These records are often referred to as the "JR" files. Several different filing systems are represented within this group, but their interrelationship are not yet clear. Not all numbered files created were preserved in this sub-series. The files include correspondence, memoranda, reports, briefs, clippings, printed material, petitions, and legal documents relating to diverse subjects. These include requests for legal opinions and advice from other government departments, land transactions, administration of government property, drafting and interpretations of legislation, claims by and against individuals and judicial and legal procedure, among other topics. The sub-series also includes maps, an atlas, architectural drawings by Samuel Hooper and technical drawings.

The second is an enlargement that shows the large island of Grand Manan, originally intended to accompany a letter to Lt. Genl. Mann, dated 29 April 1813, and surveyed by B.R. Jones. It was photographed in 1908. Both charts were used in preparation of a case under Article 1 of the Boundary Treaty of 1908.
