Dear Sir,

I have seen this day Mr Southey who will call on you to morrow and speak about my case. He knew my father well and remembers that I was the rightful heir, but he could never make it out why Sir John Brand took Sepmare’s part until I told him that the former received several farms from the latter. Of course he does not think that Lord Derby can interfere. So I leave that gentleman entirely on your hands which will be a great support to me, because he is much respected in the Free States. Thursday I go to Canterbury – I cannot find Sir Bartle Frere’s address in the directory.

No letter yet from Alderm McArthur.

With kind regards believe me dear sir,
Yours faithfully
Samuel L. Moroka

F.W. Chesson Esq
