November 23rd 1819

My Lord,

I had the honor to receive Mr. GOULBURN's letters of the 2nd and 3rd instant, the former enclosing me a letter to the Governor of the Cape, desiring him to make me a grant of land for the settlers I sent out on the Amphitrite and the latter acknowledging receipt of my letter to Mr. GOULBURN of the 30th ult, and which letter he laid before your Lordship, and received your Lordship's directions to inform me “you could not enter into any engagement for permitting me to receive grants of land at the rate of one hundred acres for each individual whom I might convey to the Cape of Good Hope, further than the number I had already stated in my letter of the 27th, and that even should your Lordship hereafter deem it advisable to permit me to send out with similar advantages an additional number to the extent specified, your Lordship would not consider it necessary to assign a separate salary to a Minister for these persons.” I beg leave to observe to your Lordship that upon receipt of your Lordship's communication of the 6th ultimo in reply to the proposition I had the honor to submit by my letter of the 20th September, I entered into engagements and made arrangements to take out one hundred settlers at my own expence, in conformity with such proposition, and which I considered had your Lordship's entire approbation.

I humbly beg your Lordship will consider that any deviation from my arrangements and the engagements I have made with settlers I take out would be attended with great inconvenience and wholly frustrate my object and views.

I beg to state to your Lordship that I have five ships going out and that I propose sending twenty settlers by each ship, taking precautions they are completely provided for, and I send out by the first vessels such description of men as to make suitable accommodation for the reception of the settlers following, and I herewith annex for your Lordship's approval twenty persons or families I am sending by the Garland, Captain BROWN, which vessel I have chartered for the purpose of taking out settlers and passengers, the Captain being an experienced man in the trade, and I ship out every description of produce, implements &c which may be considered useful, or what they may require to promote their prospects and even comforts.

I beg to add further to your Lordship that I will dispense with the request I made to your Lordship for a Minister assigned to my settlers, taking care myself they shall be provided with every proper instruction in this respect.

I have the honor to be my Lord

Your Lordship's most obedient humble servant

Jno. 1 Jun.
