May it please your Lordship

Craving pardon for the intrusion but being given to understand that Government have offered situations to such of His Majesty's subjects that have no objection to settle at the Cape of Good Hope, I being a young man, trained to husbandry, having no incumbrance, voluntarily offer myself to fill any situation I might be thought capable of; and should my supplication be sanctioned by your Lordship's approval, it would confer a lasting obligation on

Your Lordship's most humble, obedient and respectful servant

James GAMBLE
