YILMOT, Charles Stanislas (reel-too), French author, born in St. Nazaire in 1749; died in Nantes in 1794. He held an office in the quartermaster's department of Count Rochambeau's army in 1780-'2, and when Marquis de Vaudreuil embarked the French contingent for Santo Domingo, he chose to remain in the United States, and afterward engaged in business in Philadelphia. He returned to France in 1786, and came again to this country to establish a ship-building yard at Philadelphia for French speculators, but the scheme failed, owing to the French revolution. During the reign of terror he was accused of being a party to the noted "pacte de famine," and was drowned in Nantes in one of the famous "noyades " organized by Jean Baptiste Carrier. He wrote "Observations sur les services administratifs du gouverne-ment des Etats-Unis de l'Amerique du Nord" (Nantes, 1786) ; "Journal de campagne, notes prises pendant la guerre de l'independance de l'Amerique" (1789); and " Notes et esquisses sur les Etats-Unis de l'Amerique du Nord" (1792).
