My dear Sir,
I enclose you a letter I have received from Messrs BROWN & HILLS.
You will perceive what a scrape the poor fellows have got into. Pray is there any chance of an opening for them? I shall have to answer for HILLS death, as I fear the poor devil will make away with himself unless you allow him to go to the Cape.
I am my dear Sir
