Sir,

With all due respect I beg your Honor's best Direction how I shall proceed to Emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope having no means of my own to render. I beg your interference saying how I had best proceed. I have been in the habit of the Use of Arms and understand all regular Fortification and nothing but a desire to be employed in an honest and approved respectable line induces me to offer my services to leave my Native Land. Your answer will confer an obligation on

Yr obed't humble serv't
