Sept 5th 1819

My Lord,

I take the liberty to request to be informed whether an officer may have a grant of land at the Cape of Good Hope with or without a passage for himself & family and I beg to add with a view of giving as little trouble as possible that I am acquainted with the printed regulations with regard to settlers and that I merely wish to be informed if an officer may in any way have a grant bearing a similitude to Canada.

I have the honor to be my Lord with the highest respect

Your most obed't humble serv't


Lieut. Late 8th R.V. Batt


[Note from GOULBURN]

No distinction is made in favor of officers of the Army and Navy in granting lands to settlers
