Barr to Lytton
Leeds, 21 Cheapside,

In my communication of Friday last I omitted to ask you to be kind enough to inform me as to when it is expected that the appointments for the New Settlement in North Western America will be made, for which I am a Candidate.
Waiting for Your reply,
I have the Honor to be, Sir,
Your Most obedient Servant,
Robert Barr.
To Under Secretary of State,
