I beg leave to be informed if a number of people going out to the Cape of Good Hope on their own expense have to make any deposit to Government or not as there are 50 in this place going out and cannot afford to lay their money out but to the best advantage as their little capital will all be laid out in necessaries save a trifle for to buy things at the Cape. Your answer to me will very much oblige.
Your Lordship's most obedient humble servant
