Sir,

Having a wish for agricultural pursuits and having but a small capital I should wish to proceed to the Cape of Good Hope if there is any prospect of gaining a comfortable living. If you will favour me with a few particulars you will very much oblige. I have been accostomed to farming all my days. I have a wife and two brothers (both used to farming) they are about 20 years of age myself and wife are rather more than 30. There is also a young couple that will accompany us (the man is a smith by trade)

Sir, I am your obdt. Servt.
