July 27th 1819

Sir,

I received your answer from my last letter and am satisfied with the proposals in one respect but I wish for particulars in respect of those persons possessing the means. I wish to know whether every individual is to deposit any sum and to what amount and whether there is any provision made for such settlers when they arrive at the Cape. The letter mentioned one hundred acres of ground but in what manner are we to get implements for the purpose. I wish to know and what other proceedings we are to take. We remain Sir your humble sevts

Wm. BERRY

G. PENNY

[Transcriber's Note: This is unlikely to be William BERRY, the 1820 settler, whose passage was paid for by the parish of Bradford on Tone in Somerset. It is unclear whether the G. PENNY is actually George PENNY, 1820 settler, but it also seems unlikely.]
