A letter of W[illiam] B. Gilmore to A.C.V.R., reporting on some property matters. Gilmore refers to a Mr. S. whom I assume is Samuel Schieffelin. Gilmore is hopeful also that the academy of which he is the principal will thrive. He gives evidence of a warm piety in his letter. Gilmore is married to a daughter of the Van Raaltes.
