Having seen in the Sunday advertiser of the 18th Inst. a letter purporting to be official from the office of the Secretary of State for the Colonial Department stating the conditions for which it is proposed to give encouragement to Emigration to the Cape of Good Hope and considering myself to be one of the descriptions of persons entitled to the benefit proposed I beg that I may be made acquainted with the necessary steps to be taken.
If necessary I can give respectable references. An answer is respectfully requested.
I am my Lord your Lordships Most Humble Servant
