Arrangement

The letterbook is divided into three subjects: correspondence concerning Bahrain, correspondence concerning the Arab Coast and Muscat, and correspondence concerning the slave trade. Each subject has a title sheet.

Within each subject, the correspondence is arranged in chronological order, based on the date of the outward letter. Enclosures included immediately after the outward letter are chronologically earlier than the letter they are enclosed with. Inward correspondence, chiefly in the form of replies from the Government of India, are placed immediately after the letter they acknowledge receipt of. Because of the long periods of time taken for mail to travel, the inward replies are of a much later date (approximately three to four months) than the outward correspondence.
