In reply to an application which I made at Colonial Office for information respecting the settlement proposed to be established at Algoa bay I was given to understand that the only means of gaining any certain intelligence on the subject was by addressing a letter to you.
You would therefore Sir greatly oblige me by making known the particulars of the plan.
I am Sir your most obed't humble servt
Charles James? CHAPMAN
