Having been honoured with the appointment of Chaplain of Grahams Town at the Cape of Good Hope for which place I intend to embark at the end of the present month I am induced most respectfully to solicit the indulgence of a free passage and humbly hope that out of consideration of the many expences incident to a preparation for a residence in a distant country, my request my not be deemed unreasonable by the Rt. Honble. The Sect. Of State.
I have the honour to be sir
Your most obedt. Humb'l Servt.
