This series of the papers was in far better order than the others, probably having been disturbed little since the death of Clarendon. Most of the papers were done up in bundles, and sealed. It is possible that some of this sealing was done by the 5th Lord Clarendon, but the greater part seems to have been done by Lady Clarendon. The system used was to have bundles for each of the more important correspondents, e.g. Lord John Russell, Sir George Grey, Sir Charles Wood etc., and to arrange the remainder alphabetically by the name of the author (boxes 1-32 and 41-48) or by subjects (boxes 33-40). These bundles were numbered. There is also a smaller series of unnumbered bundles which are arranged in the same way (boxes 49-52). Besides these bundles there are various other letters and papers (boxes 53-78). Some of them were probably originally made up in bundles, but have at some time been broken up; there are now no bundles numbered 1-9. Others had been kept apart in drawers or boxes and were never included in the main series.
