[undated, but filed with correspondence sent in December 1819]

Sir

Having received so great a kindness at your hands before I am quite ashamed to obtrude myself again upon your notice but trust the peculiarity of the favour I have ventured to implore will plead an excuse for the liberty I have taken.

Sir my wife happens to be the only child her father has living, who fancied we were not in earnest in our intention of going to settle at the Cape of Good Hope, but finding we are so, he is greatly distressed at the thought of our going without him.

Sir this is therefore most humbly to intreat your permition to alow him Robert WAY, Charles SHOUBRIDGE and Sarah his wife to accompany us in the Sir George Osborn in which ship Sir you have so kindly alowed myself and family to embark, in doing which you will confer ten thousand favours in one upon Sir

Your verry obliged and verry obedient humble servant

Henry LOVEMORE

[Transcriber's Note: Though a member of BAILIE's Party, Henry LOVEMORE and family and his father-in-law, Robert WAY, sailed in the Sir George Osborn]
