Series 67: Correspondence, being mainly letters received by Banks concerning the results of the voyage of HMS Investigator, Matthew Flinders, 1804-1806

Provenance note 

Document 1 in this series was previously located at ML MSS 743/2 and was purchased for the Library from the dealer Maggs of London in 1946. 

All other documents in this series were previously located at ML A79-5. These papers, purchased in 1884 from Lord Brabourne by Sir Saul Samuel, the Agent-General for New South Wales, were transferred to the Mitchell Library in 1910. They were part of the accession which became known as the Brabourne collection. 

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