You may remember perhaps my name being introduced to you many years ago by Mr. Hawkins BROWNE as attending to public improvements in agriculture and the fisheries. I am desirous of being more fully informed regarding the plan for colonising the lands at the Cape of Good Hope, their situation &c as I perhaps mean to be induced to take out a party of very usefull colonists.
I remain Sir
You most obedient and very humble servant
