A $5.00 receipt in 1906 shows that Mr. Parker was a member of The Columbia Club in Indianapolis.

Gauss sent Mr. Parker a letter on June 12, 1906, advertising his catarrh elixir and balm. On June 13, 1906, the War Department wrote to Honorable George W. Cromer, U.S. House of Representatives, informing him that his "personal set of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies be sent to Hon. George S.
