I beg leave to be favored with the prospectus of the plan upon which His Majesty's Ministers propose to establish the new settlement at Algoa Bay on the Southern Coast of Africa, in requesting which I am particularly desirous to know how far the plan would embrace the emigration of settlers at their own expence, carrying out with them husbandsmen &c, whether the encouragement to such settlers would differ from that held out to others; as also whether the lands about to be granted are confined to the neighbourhood of Algoa Bay or comprise the range of coast towards Plettenburg and the Knysna. I beg to apologise for these detailed enquiries.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant
