Correspondence Editorial Policy Updated
I have revised the editorial policy and procedures statement for correspondence, so that it reflects our current practices, particularly in regard to treatment of the Reconstruction-era letters. The changes made to the editorial policy primarily deal with the placement of editorial commentary and metadata in the HTML view. In addition, the new policy indicates that we are in the process of transcribing and encoding letterhead. In the past, we did not treat letterhead.
