Search Letters

The index of thousands of diplomatic letters can be searched by entering one or more search fields.

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.
