My Lord,

I have enclosed a list of fourteen able bodied industrious sober men with eight women and sixteen children desirous of emigrating and are willing to the conditions proposed in the circular, for each of whom I am ready to make the deposit required, and am likewise possessed of sufficient capital to carry into effect the intentions of His Majesty's Government. An early answer my Lord would be esteemed a great favor as it would allow more time to the parties to make the necessary arrangements before embarkation. I am my Lord

Your Lordship's most obedient and very humble serv't
