ABSTRACT
Correspondence was a well-established and institutionalised practice in the Ottoman bureaucracy. Ottoman Sultans expressed their will and commands via various documents in accordance with specific conditions. This paper focuses on the transformation of irâde-i seniyye as an important document type for the correspondence in the Ottoman palace. The influence of the Constitutional Periods on the transformation of the functions of this document will be taken up along with its repercussions on the machinery of the Ottoman Palace and the Sublime Porte. This paper is an attempt to establish a connection between the Ottoman correspondence system and its function as the mirror of Ottoman administration.
