     Re:  File No. 70-8889
          Entergy Corporation - Application-Declaration
          with Respect to Restructuring of Subsidiaries

Ladies and Gentlemen:

     I am Assistant Secretary for Entergy Enterprises, Inc. and
am familiar with the transactions described and proposed (the
"Proposed Transactions") in the Application-Declaration on Form U-
1, as amended (the "Application"), filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (the "Commission") under the Public Utility
Holding Company Act of 1935, as amended (the "Act"), in the above-
referenced File.  The Proposed Transactions relate generally to
the restructuring by Entergy Corporation ("Entergy") of its
holdings in its indirect subsidiary company, Entergy Richmond
Power Corporation ("Entergy Richmond").  I have examined, among
other things, the Application and such other documents,
certificates and corporate records, and such matters of law, as I
have deemed necessary to form the basis of this opinion.

     Based upon the foregoing, it is my opinion that:

1.   Entergy Richmond is a corporation validly organized and duly
existing under the laws of the State of Delaware.

2.   All actions necessary to make valid the Proposed
Transactions will have been taken when: (i) the Application shall
have been granted and/or permitted to become effective in
accordance with the applicable provisions of the Act; and (ii)
all requisite final action authorizing the Proposed Transactions
shall have been taken by the Boards of Directors of Entergy,
Entergy Richmond or Entergy Power Development Corporation, or by
duly authorized officers or committees thereof.

3.   When the foregoing steps have been taken, and assuming the
Proposed Transactions are consummated in accordance with the
Application and the related order or orders of the Commission:
(i) all state laws applicable to the Proposed Transactions will
have been complied with; (ii) the securities of Entergy Richmond
being acquired by Entergy as described in the Application will be
validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, and Entergy will be
entitled to the rights and privileges appertaining thereto as
described in Entergy Richmond's charter; (iii) Entergy may
lawfully acquire the securities of Entergy Richmond as described
in the Application; and (iv) the consummation of the Proposed
Transactions will not violate the legal rights of the holders of
any securities issued by Entergy or any associate company

     I am a member of the Illinois bar and do not hold myself out
as an expert on the laws of any other state.

     I hereby consent to the use of this opinion as an exhibit to
the Application.

                                        Very truly yours,

                                        /s/ Frederick F. Nugent

                                        Frederick F. Nugent
