Hon Sir,

I beg leave to apply to your Lordship as a person wishing to go out as a settler to the Cape of Good Hope hoping your Lordship will be pleased to grant me the encouragement that is proposed by Government. I have a few hundred pounds and would wish to take a few able men alongst with me. Therefore I will anxiously wait on your Lordship's answers and time and place of embarkation.

I remain with due respect

Your Lordship's obed't humble serv't
