My dear McLean,

I just drop you a line to enlist your Interest and influence when Mr.Vogel returns relating to my expenditure in England with regard to emigration.

I sent out a total of 122. Besides distributing a large number of emigration forms both in the country and London.

My expenses incurred amounting to nearly £300, and I trust the Government will consider my case with regard to reimbursement.

All the correspondence on the subject is in the hands of the Government.

Trusting to your kind assistance, believe me
Very truly yours
John Alexander Smith
