Having seen an advertisement in a paper wishing for British Subjects to go the Cape of Good Hope (as settlers) I much wish to become one should you approve of me, being out of employ and having nothing to doo in this country for a long tome past, a sawyer by trade having a wife and no children, age 28 years.

I remain Sir your humble servat
