ArrangementThe numbering in the references goes up to 47 (MS/238b/28/47) even though there are only 33 letters in this file. This is due to 14 records being deleted during the recataloguing process, when it was discovered that the listing included summaries of letters that are not present in our archive. The original numbering was not changed for the sake of consistency.
