My Lord,

I shall consider myself very much obliged in being informed if it is in the contemplation of His Majesty's Government to grant certain proportions of land in the neighbourhood of the Cape of Good Hope to Officers of the Army in the like manner as it is granted in Canada, and if the grant will be extended to such officers of the British Militia as are now unprovided for by the State, and who may be willing to emigrate.

I have the honor to be

Your Lordship's most obedient humble servant


Captain Cambridge Militia
