My Lord, Having the best reasons for believing that the Rbt DYASON late of Faversham Kent, by trade a sailor, is now proceeding to embark on board of some of his Majesties transports for the Cape of Good Home as a settler under the auspices of this Government.

We beg permission to enquire if it be known at this your Lordship's Office on board of what ship the said Robt DYASON is directed to take his passage - he having clandestinely removed himself and all his effects from his late residence without having satisfied his creditors and now stands greatly indebted in a considerable sum of money to

My Lord,

A person of the name of Rob't DYASON late of Faversham in the County of Kent (Saddle and Harness Maker) is going to the Cape of Good Hope as one of the settlers. The said Rob't DYASON is indebted to me ten pounds six shillings and 9d for goods delivered and as he has left his late residence and not knowing where he is at present is the reason for my requesting your Lordship to order the said Rob't DYASON to pay the amount of his bill before you grant him order to leave this country.

Will confer a favour on your Lordship's very humble servant
