Scope and content
The series consists of two volumes of correspondence created or collected by the Militia stationed at Victoria. The first volume, 1874-1876, contains correspondence regarding payment and accounting procedures from the Dept. of Militia and Defense in Ottawa to Captain Edward Mallandaine, paymaster for Militia district 11. The second volume, 1875-1896 (with gaps) contains correspondence from various militia officers stationed at Work Point barracks to the private secretary of the Lieutenant-Governor, most of it social or ceremonial in nature.
The volumes are fragile and the boards in volume one have separated from the contents.
Immediate source of acquisition
This is probably really two separate series but it's not practical to split them up without more information about the source and custodial history of the records.
