Having seen an advertisement in a paper wishing for British subjects to go to the Cape of Good Hope (as settlers) I much wish to become one should you approve of me, being out of employ and having nothing to doo in this country for a long time; a sawyer by trade, having a wife and one child, age 28 years

I remain Gentlemen

Your humble servant
