Having perused the first printed circular respecting emigration to the Cape of Good Hope, I beg leave to inform you, that I am a single man of 32 years of age, active, and healthy, and very ready to deposit the sum of ten pounds, for my passage to the Cape. I have moreover the sum of forty pound, which I could employ in purchasing things necessary for such an undertaking. Your further instructions would greatly favor me, and if required will call at the office Downing Street.

I am Sir your most obedt. Humble servant

Godfrey W. FEISE
