Letters sent by the Director’s office, 1873-1938. Press copy books. No reliable index.

Vols. 1-85 are large size fair copies 1884-1901; archives locator is RG104, 450/66/28/04. Vols. 86 and up are press copies beginning in 1873; some of this material duplicates the fair copies. Text quality in this portion of the series varies.
