Outward. (1727 - 1795).
Letters in this series are addressed to the same places as in the "Inward" series.
After the copy of the letter, there is also filed a register of the annexes sent, also some annexes in copy. Some of the letters contain copies of the annexes sent (vide the inventory reports to Bengal in no. 5175). The original letters from Belligam forwarding these are also filed as annexes.
It is clear from the lists that these letters were sent out in duplicate, by two different ships, and sometimes in triplicate. All the copies filed are signed by the Commandeur and the Members of Council.
