Scope and Content

From London to John Wesley Suter, schoolmaster of Bradford, Yorkshire, giving details of the arrangements for Suter's passage to Ceylon in the East Indianian 'Cabalva', commanded by Captain Birch.

Suter will travel as Coke's secretary rather than as a missionary, and his fare of £200 will be paid for by Coke. Once the mission is established, Coke intends touring India, and then returning to England in about two years. Suter can remain in India or return home as he wishes.
