Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Peachy Ridgeway Gilmer, 26 March 1805

on or before 26 Mch 1805

Dr Sir.

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
