My Lord,

Having read in the Publick Papers an offer by Government for persons to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope, I beg leave to offer myself to your Lordship's notice. I am a single man near 25 years of age, am healthy, free from any incumbrance and can give respectable references for carracter. A line on the above with particulars will be esteemed a favour by your Lordship's obedient humble servant

Jno. W. LEWIS

Please to direct for me at Mr. HUGHES
