Search Letters

The index of thousands of diplomatic letters can be searched by entering one or more search fields. As all letters do have a source location, destination location, and the name of the ruler who wrote the particular letter, searching with one or more of these search fields will generally give good results. To filter still further the number of results, it is possible to set a time frame. Selection can lead to one or more results. Each result can be clicked on, invoking the browse page on the exact position of the letter in the scans of the original volume of the Daily Journals of Batavia Castle.
