    This series consists of copies of letters sent from the Melbourne Harbor Trust Commissioners (from 1978 known as the Port of Melbourne Authority) to their corporate solicitors Malleson, Stewart and Co. (commonly known as Mallesons) from the beginning of 1960. The letters relate to a variety of legal matters. Prior to 1960 copies of letters sent to Mallesons were interfiled among other letter copies within VPRS 7964 Outward Letter Books.

    The P1 consignment of this series comprises ten lever arch files number sequentially from 1 to 10 and covering the period 5 January 1960 to 4 June 1982. Although the first five books have an attached index the letter copies were allocated index numbers from the same sequence used, up to the end of 1981, to control the letter copies within VPRS 7964 Outward Letter Books. This series is therefore also controlled by VPRS 7965 Outward Correspondence Name Index Cards.

    It appears that from 1982 copies of letters sent to Mallesons were again interfiled within the main sequence of Outward Letter Books (VPRS 7964).
