My Lord,

I trust your Lordship will excuse the liberty I take in requesting to be informed if it is in contemplation to send a medical gentleman to the colony about to be established at the Cape of Good Hope. Should such be the intention of Government I beg to offer myself for such service and I hope that having served His Majesty upwards of twenty years abroad will be deemed sufficient to entitle me to a preferment to such a situation.

I have the honour to be my Lord

Your Lordship's most obd't sevt

John A. CAMPBELL
