Understanding it is requisite to address you by letter; I do myself the honor of requesting that you will favour me with a copy of the circular letter, to be sent me (issued by Government containing the regulations under which settlers are allowed to go out to the Cape of Good Hope) and any other printed information that may have been circulated on that subject, being desirous of going there as an agriculturist thru' the medium of my friends in the country. A compliance with my request will infinitely oblige me, according to the address below.
I have the honor to be Sir
Your obedient humble servant
