Mr. Carr informed me that you wished to know whether a man by the name of Dominick Gilmer had ever lived with my father, I can assert very confidently, that no such man has been a member of our family within fifteen years. that I never before heard the name, and that there is not a person of that name in any branch of the family
I shall be very happy to furnish you with 30 gallons of cyder if you like the flavor of it; particularly if you will accept it on the same terms, that my fnds have taken what I have hitherto disposed of. as a mark of my respect and esteem.
Accept my most freindly wishes
P. R. Gilmer
