Sir,

I received a letter from you some time since at Hitchin in Herts respecting the settlement in NSW but have declined think any more about that Province. Now Sir I should take it a favour if you would be kind enough to send me government's propositions for a settlement in the Cape & be good enough to favour me with them this afternoon if convenient as I wish to leave London. I am well known to many noblemen whose letters if required I could obtain.

Your obedient servant

H. Benj. COCK
