Sir,

By the request of several persons in this town have written to you on the subject of emigration to the Cape.

What privilege to emigrants when arrived

Whether mechanics may emigrate

What age addmitted of persons who emigrate

Whether emigrants go free of all expence

Whether emigrants are permitted to return from the Cape to England if they are so disposed

An answer to these enquiries and any other information relative thereunto will much oblige

Your humble servant

Wm WHITHEAD
