1820 Settler Correspondence before emigration

ALL the 1819 correspondence from CO48/41 through CO48/46 has been transcribed whether or not the writers emigrated to the Cape. Those written by people who did become settlers, as listed in "The Settler Handbook" by M.D. Nash (Chameleon Press 1987), are labelled 1820 Settler and the names of actual settlers in the text appear in red.

Being informed a written application must be made for the particulars of the emigration to the Cape of Good Hope, I beg the favour of them as I have a desire to go, should I approve of the conditions.

I am Sir your humble servant
