Digital images of the Medical Superintendent's Letterbooks
Some of the digital images of letters from the Medical Superintendent’s Letterbooks may be difficult to read because the copies of the letters in the Letterbooks were produced using the process of letterpress copying. This technology has resulted, over time, in the ink fading, blurring around the edges of the hand writing and because of the thinness of the pages, some show through of information from subsequent pages.
