15 Basinghall Street
28th July 1819
A sober industrious and clever carpenter named Timothy DIVINE a native of Dublin is desirous of settling at the Cape of Good Hope with his family, viz a wife and four children. He is prepared to fulfil the conditions of the late Act of Parliament if he could obtain permission from Government to go. He will produce every recommendation that can be required respecting his character both in Dublin and London; as regards myself I can speak of him as being in his humble condition a most amiable disposed man. He can get no work and is in much distress.
I remain most respectfully
Your most obedient servant
