cc   Documents relating to farm conditions (1765/66 - 1792/93).
At the beginning of almost every file, there appears a copy of the general terms and conditions of farming out the various rents. The farms are in respect of both the Galle and the Matara districts.
All farms were given out for the period of the financial year, i.e. from 1st September to 31st August. Some rents were farmed out for more than a one-year period: they are generally filet in the volume of the first farm - year, e.g.
no. 6035 which contains the farms for the financial year 1777 - 1778 also contains one document of farming-out for the period 1777 - 1779.
For a list of the farms, see no. 6040. See also the list at the end of the general conditions in the first document in no. 6041.
