D'Alberti papers. (comprises transcripts of the Colonial Secretary's Letterbook and transcripts of some of the Correspondence, incoming and outgoing, between the Colonial Office and the Governor's Office in Newfoundland)
This 34 volume set contains typewritten transcripts of handwritten originals of Newfoundland material obtained from British colonial files; much of it from the Colonial Secretary’s Letterbook for 1780 to 1825. The years 1785-1789 are missing.

An index is present at the beginning of each volume.

The D’Alberti sisters, who made the transcriptions, were commissioned to go through the manuscript series by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in 1924-1925.
