I am directed by Mr. WILSON to apply to you for advice on the following subject. I agreed with Mr. SMITH to proceed to the Cape of Good Hope with him, he paid the deposit for me but there exist no written agreement between us. I will thank you to inform me if in my paying the money to him again I am intitled to the land allotted by Government on my landing at the Cape.
I remain Sir your very humble servant
