Notes (Hamnet): 
Collection of newsletters issued on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays by the Secretary of State's office as official newsletter sent chiefly to agents, but also to certain subcribers. Newletters were started by Sir Joseph Williamson during the period he was Undersecretary of State (1660-1674) and Secretary of State for the Northern Department (1674-1679). The newsletters continued to be sent by others from this office, and the ones in this collection were addressed to three successive generations of the Newdigate family of Arbury Hall, Warwickshire: Sir Richard Newdigate, 1st baronet, Sir Richard Newdigate, 2nd baronet, and Sir Richard Newdigate, 3rd baronet. Topics of interest consist of the Stuart courts and those of most of Europe; social, diplomatic, and military history; parliamentary news; commercial and maritime relations, particularly those with the colonies in North America and both the West and East Indies.
