Calendar of Treasury Papers
Calendar of Treasury Papers, Joseph Redington
A wealth of records relating to this most central of governmental offices. Patronage, crown finance, and every avenue of interest of the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury is recorded here. In 1842, the Master of the Rolls described them thus: "They are of the highest historical interest and curiosity, throwing light on a variety of civil and political events; the progress of the Revenue, the Crown lands, the Colonies, the public transaction of office, and many of the private affairs of persons of every class".
