Series 14: Letters received by Banks from William Wright, 1778, ca 1782-1793

Provenance note

The documents in this series were previously located at ML A79-3. They were purchased in 1884 from Lord Brabourne by Sir Saul Samuel, the Agent-General for New South Wales, and transferred to the Mitchell Library in 1910. They were part of the accession which became known as the Brabourne collection.

Many include small folio numbers written in ink in the top right hand corner in an unknown hand.

It is now not possible to reconstruct Banks' original arrangement, the series has therefore been arranged chronologically.
