In this study, we attempt to classify, describe and name individual types of documents used by the district council in Boskovice in written contact with authorities, organizations and private persons in the years 1870–1928. The structure is based on a combination of rank and formality. We then scrutinize the documents across the entire page, and we focus on papers and personal papers used exclusively by the district governor as the head of the office. We also deal with what are formally the simplest communication documents – indorsements. In a separate chapter we discuss the modernization of communication papers at the end of 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The text is supplemented by examples of selected documents in a separate pictorial appendix.
