My Lord,

The humble petition of John SCOTT, a settler at the Cape of Good Hope went out in Mr. WILSONs party as a shipwright and having since obtained leave of permission from His Excellency the Governor Lord Charles SOMERSET returned to England on some private affairs, wishing to return to his wife and six children and being unable to pay his passage himself, begs his Lordship would be pleased to grant him a passage out in one of His Majesty's store ships, and your humble petitioner in duty bound will ever pray

Your Lordship's most obed't humble servant
