Dear sir,

I take the liberty by this of introducing to you Mr Royes (son of a highly respectable gentleman) who visits Australia in search of employment. If you should want a Clerk or Superintendent on your farm you will oblige me by taking Mr Royes he has ever conducted himself with the strictest sobriety, integrity, industry and ability, and I have no doubt of his giving his employer every satisfaction. If you should not have room for him on your own establishment may I beg you will have the goodness to recommend him to some of your friends where there may be openings.

James, 

Dear Sir,

Yours truly
