Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consult the Records Description List for VPRS 1174 to obtain the required unit number.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of books containing transcripts of telegrams sent and received by the Premiers Office. Much of the correspondence in this series is between various Premiers of Victoria and Agents-General in London.

    The telegram books usually contain two versions of each message, one in the original code used in the telegrams text, and the other a translation of this code.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The copies of telegrams in VPRS 1174 are arranged chronologically by the date of each telegram.

    In Units 1-3, the code version of the telegram is copied out, and beneath it is recorded the translation. In Units 4-13, a new system of arrangement is used. The code version is copied out on the left hand page (its number and the number of words is also noted) and on the right hand page the translated version is recorded.
