May it please your Lordship to inform me what are the conditions that are offered by His Majesty's Government to persons that do take out the number of men women and children to the Colony for to settle at the Cape of Good Hope according to the terms specified in the circular letter and at what place they do embark at what time they disembark. The parish of Cam are overburdened with poor and propose sending out at least ten able bodied men above the age of eighteen principally with large families and wether the person so taking them out will be allowed to take out any tools such as used in the cultivation of land and what he must advance in money for his passage and tunage for such tools if so allowed.
