Sir,

Feeling a great desire (together with many of my neighbours) to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope and having learnt that the ships engaged for the presant are already full, I have taken the liberty to enquire when any further applications will be attended to. Your answer to this with any other information will be thankfully received by

Your most ob't and humble serv't

George SCHOLEFIELD

[note from GOULBURN across corner]

Not at present any intention of accepting further proposals
