Graafl-Reinet. — Landdrost Woeke mentions that on the 9th April last he had sent in a memorial to Governor v. d. Graaff requesting that the vacant places among the burghers might be filled by the persons suggested by him, and also in another letter of the same date, that an adjunct messenger might be appointed As he does not know whether these matters have been brought to your notice (viz.. The Hon. Isaac Joh. Rhenius, Administra- tor, and Council), he once more requests that, as the burgher- Captain Daniel Willem Kuhn has removed to Swellendam, and since died ; and as the sub-Lieutenant Christiaan Rudolph Opyperman, being too corpulent to ride on horseback, has asked for his discharge, and by the death of the Adjutant, Willem Burgard, and sub-Lieutenant, Willem Louw, their places have also become vacant, — the Council may be pleased to appoint : — The first Lieutenant, Jozua Joubert, as Captain ; the sub-Lieu- tenant Nicolaas Smit as first Lieutenant ; the Cornets Cornelis Botma and Abraham de Clercq as sub-Lieutenants ; the Cavalry sergeants, Jacobus Adam Hurter and David Schalk v. d.
