Hon'd Sir,

From yours of the 28th I understand that 10 individuals must at least offer themselves to Government. Excuse the liberty I take and the trouble which I occasion you, but Sir could you inform me my best way of proceeding to the Cape? I am 20 years old and can advance the sum of £10 myself to Government; at the same time Sir I am at loss to know which is my best mode of proceeding, therefore Sir would you have the goodness to address a line to me or should you be calling our way I should be glad to see you and you will greatly oblige

Your grateful humble & obed't serv't
