INGAR, James Julius
Aug 3rd 1819
††††††††††† Having observed in the public prints the offer made by Government to assist such persons who are destitute of employment to obtain a passage to the Cape of Good Hope, I beg your Lordship will be pleased to give me the necessary information that I may avail myself of the generous offer.
††††††††††† I am a married man. My wife now pregnant was bred to agricultural pursuits, has been abroad in hot climates several years, and having had a liberal education I have studied Medicine and Surgery, but by a series of misfortunes I am much reduced and quite unemployed. Your Lordshipís kindness in allowing us to become members of the new settlement will be esteemed a favour.
Your Lordshipís most obedít sevít
