    This series contains index cards of the names of companies sending letters to the Chief Secretary. The index was prepared in 1970 from VPRS 1411 Chief Secretary's Office, Index to Inwards Correspondence. VPRS 1411 is divided into classified headings and from 1854 Companies were listed separately.

    The listing included:

    The card index has a separate card for each company, the file number and sometimes a summary of the nature of the business is included. Between 1851 and 1853 there is no indexed heading Companies in VPRS 1411 and the entries include many institutions which would not have been indexed after 1853. The file number relates to VPRS 1189, Chief Secretary's Office, Inwards Correspondence.
