Translation of olas. 1704 - 1796.
Most of the documents in these files are documents which were received by the Central Government; there are very few drafts of documents sent by the Central Government.
They vary in nature: there are report-olas, letter-olas, "act"-olas and complaint-olas. All these olas were translated at the secretariat in Colombo, where interpreters would assist the V.O.C. government.
