Sir,

Seeing that Government is about to do something to encourage going out to the Cape of Good Hope, you will Sir much oblige in giving me some information relative thereto. I did about three years ago make application respecting going to Canada but had no encouragement. I hope and trust you will notice this and consider me an applicant which will much oblige Sir

Your most ob't hbl sev't

Sir,

I wrote some few days past requesting to be favor'd with particulars relative to going out as a settler to the Cape – have to observe that I am very well informed concerning every branch of agriculture &c and have a wife and two children. I have seen in the Courrier a Letter said to be a circular from Downing Street wherein it says that 10 men or families must be taken out together and not less – you will Sir very much oblige by saying in answer wether I should not be permitted to go out by paying down the sum propos'd and proveing myself competent in every thing else required.

I am Sir your mo ob hb st

Sam'l NICKLINE
