Sir,

I herewith transmit the names and descriptions of the persons engaged with me agreeable to the proposals from Government made to those who wish to emigrate to Southern Africa in the vicinity of Algoa Bay. I request as a particular favour to know what additional grant of land or other advantages will be made if I pay our several passages to the Colony.
