Having been informed that Government, for the encouragement of Officers desirous of settling in the Cape of Good Hope will, in addition to a grant of land, procure them a passage to that Colony. Should my information be correct I would most willingly offer myself as a candidate to settle there, and beg your Lordship to order me a grant in that Colony. Having a large family I am the more inspired to obtain information on this subject and shall feel myself particularly obliged to your Lordship to let me know as soon as possible whether my information is correct.
I have the honour to be My Lord, your Lordships most obedient faithful humble svt
Please to direct for me
