Having read in the publick papers that an address was agreed to in the Honourable House of Commons on Monday last, to allow people to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope, I beg leave to offer myself to your notion. I have a wife and no family, am by trade a taylor but not having sufficient employ to support myself is the reason I thus intrude on your kindness. Should a reference to my character be necessary, I beg leave to refer to the Mr. DOLEMAN, No.1 Tavistock Street, Covent Garden or Messrs Walker & Ligs, ??ford Street, Covent Garden.
I am Sir,
Your humble Servant
