Having seen the circular respecting emigration to the Cape of Good Hope – ten Heads of families having agreed to emigrate under the Terms of the circular and have appointed one of there number to be there leader.
We consider it necessary to know when you intend to send the Emigrants from Britain and from what port you design to embark the North Britainers.
I hope you will send an answer to the above that we may ascertain the time and be in readiness to come forward and embrace the offer. Please give us every information.
We remain your humble servants
