As I expect more persons to apply to me for the purpose of going to the Cape of Good Hope than have yet applied I will thank you to say how much longer time will be allowed for the returning lists of names for the approbation of Ministry – with the time of embarking & whether (if we are approved of) we can embark at Portsmouth, if not where we are to embark from.
I am provided with instructions of making out lists &c
I remain yr humble svt
PS If approved of people emigrating from here will feel so much [obliged] to embark from Spithead.
