I am about to proceed to the New Colony at the Cape of Good Hope with Mr. Thomas WILSON of Bridge Cottage Chelsea Water Works, myself paying the deposit of 10 Pounds according to Government regulations and 5 Pounds for implements and other stores.

I should wish to know if it is in the power of the said Mr. WILSON to grant to me the proportion of land to me my heirs and successors for ever before we leave England.

I have the honor be with due respect your Lordship most obedient humble servant
