Having with pleasure considered the encouragement given by Government to settlers to forward to the Cape of Good Hope & I having collected above the number stated viz 15 settlers, the half of which having families & none of the children above 14 years of age, so that I request you would be pleased to let me know if Lord BATHURST will accept of these & if his Lordship will, where will the money be paid, the place of embarkation or when, as the above number are ready any time.
I am Sir your most devoted humble servany
Duncan Mac DONALD
