Although some of these records rightfully belong in already existing sub groups, a special sub group was created due to the fact that most of these records are minuscule in number or are filed regardless of office or origin. All the papers are parts of other matters and in some cases are merely fragments or estrays. In some cases, the records are in a sad state of decay although most of the records have been flattened, cleaned, laminated and put into folders according to subject matter.
