I take the liberty of applying to you for information respecting the emigration to the Cape of Good Hope which I understand is to take place under the sanction of the Gover't. I shall feel much obliged by an explanation as to the nature of the assistance intended to be given with the probable destination of the emigrants on their arrival at the Colony - what other information you can add will be thankfully rec'd. My family consists of four persons, viz myself aged 45 years, wife 39, two sons 16 & 14 years.
