1820 Settler Correspondence before emigration

ALL the 1819 correspondence from CO48/41 through CO48/46 has been transcribed whether or not the writers emigrated to the Cape. Those written by people who did become settlers, as listed in "The Settler Handbook" by M.D. Nash (Chameleon Press 1987), are labelled 1820 Settler and the names of actual settlers in the text appear in red.

July 30th 1819


I took the liberty some days ago solliciting the favor of you in furnishing me with the particulars on account of the new establishing of the Colony at the Cape of Good Hope. Having not been honoured with an answer I beg leave to apply again and hope you will not be offended for my intruding. I am Sir with due respect

Your humble obedient servant
