From the nature of the documents, they are apparently drafts which belonged to the personal archives of the Jaffna Dissava, C.F. Schreuder.
6816
Report by the commissioners appointed by the Governor and Council in Colombo to inquire into the question of thc farming out of Government rents in the Jaffna Commandement; with annexes and connected papers. Draft.
This file is listed in the old lists of the British period of the Dutch records in the Government Archives at Colombo. It probably belonged to the Colombo series, but it is not listed as such in the old Dutch inventories of records in the Colombo Secretariat of 1796. It is therefore placed here with the Jaffna records.
