System of arrangement
The items in this file have been guarded and filed together as Volume IX, and this arrangement has been retained for practical reasons. Furthermore, although the current binding appears to have been done since the archive arrived at NLW, there is no reason to suppose that the grouping of the documents together does not pre-date the binding.
