My Lord,

I humbly address your Lordship requesting that you would have the goodness to inform me (if it lays in your department of Government if not to forward it to the proper Quarter) whether I and some other of my Brothers can be permitted to go to the Affrican Settlement to reside upon the same conditions as the Settlers who went out in the year 1820 – if we can when will any ships be going to the Cape of Good Hope or Angola Bay on the Government account, or whether a passage will be granted any other way to the said Settlement - -we have relations there and are very desireous to join them by the Goverments permission – your reply to these Enquiries will much oblige your humble petitioner
