GOV. THOS. NELSON JR., TO GOV. BURKE.

Richmond, July 27th, 1781.

Dear Sir:

Your favor of the 19th instant was delivered to me yesterday. If to engage in the arduous business of Government can be agreeable, I heartily congratulate you on your appointment.

The whole system of Government in the Southern States is so deranged that the man who can organize and bring them into order will be Magnus Appollo.
