JONES, Thomas (2)

I have taken the liberty of sending this letter to you as I understand you will have the business of answering those who wish to emigrate to Southern Africa – the Cape of Good Hope. Me and a relation of mine wish to go we have nearly thirty pound between us & from what little I have heard that may be a sufficiency. I am 27 years old, he is 22. Neither married at present. We should be obliged to you to inform us how we are to proceed (as soon as convenient) that we may make the proper arrangements.

Your humble servant
