George A. Nelson Letter

Identifier: MS-0849

In this letter to his brother, James R. Nelson, George Nelson writes that he received the money James sent and has used it to pay a man to whom he owed money for land. Nelson goes on to report that he has just finished planting his corn and that there have been a number of fires in the area, including one that caused between $5,000 and $6,000 of damage. He closes by sending his love to his family and imploring his brother to write soon.
