Having a great desire to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope, and being informed you are the gentlemen to apply for the situation, I would be happy to serve you as a Timber Sawyer, having a wife and one child, a young man as my position is without any incumberance, I would willingly embrace the opportunity at the earliest notice.

Sir the favour of a few lines will highly Oblige Your Obedient and Humble Servant.
