Boddicott House

August 10th, 1819

Sir,

Feeling anxious to emigrate to the Cape and being enabled to procure 10 families of the labouring class to go with me and also to furnish the money as required by Government, I would feel particularly obliged by your sending me the conditions upon which I am to go and take it for granted that in those conditions an idea is given of what advantages a person in a respectable line of life in this country would be likely to derive by emigrating to the Cape and there settle 10 families.

I am Sir,

your obed hble Serv

Edward ARNOLD

Please to direct

Mr. ARNOLD

Surveyor
