Dear Mrs. Burney: <br />
You have accomplished a magnificent job in your county and I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and my gratitude. You have contributed your part in this great vitory for good government in Mississippi. <br />
<br />
It is very urgent that you send me at P. O. Box 892, Hattiesburg, a list of Supporters in your county; also a list of those who contributed in a financial way. This list will be of vital importance and I urge you and caution you to make it out carefully and considerately. <br />
<br />
We also want the tabulation by precincts for your county which may be secured from your county newspaper. <br />
<br />
There will be no vitory celebration as we must start to work immediately to plan for the future and we look forward to your playing your part. Thank you again fro everything you have done adn if I can ever be of any help to you in any way please do not hesitate to call on me. <br />
<br />
The Governor is planning a state-wide tour so I would appreciate your attention to these lists at the earliest possible moment. <br />
<br />
With kindest personal regards, I am<br />
<br />
Sincerely yours, <br />
Walter Murphey<br />
