Sir,

Your circular addressed to me the 27th ult explains very clearly the terms on which settlers are to be taken out. But I should wish to know if on their arrival at the Cape they will find any preparation for their reception. You say settlers will be victualled by Government during their passage, after that are they to trust to the colonists for supply or have any stores been collected by Government. I should also wish to know if they had better supply themselves with agricultural implements, tools & other necessaries here or if there is a certainty of their being met with on the spot

I am Sir

Your most obed't serv't

Alex. RICHARDS
