It being my intention to proceed to the Cape of Good Hope (taking with me not less than ten persons) for the purpose of improving a portion of land that my rank as Lieut. of the Navy, and for each person I so take with me, may be entitled to.
I have to request the favor of being inform'd by what means I am to obtain the said Grant and whether I can expect the indulgence of being the bearer of a letter of recommendation from the Colonial office to Lord Charles SOMERSET.
I remain Sir
Your most obdt hble servt
Lieut. R. Navy
