Editor's Notes

[From Mrs Edison in Palatka Florida, but writing on stationery from the Clarendon Hotel] I received your letter last Sunday. I am delighted to hear that Dottie is getting along so well. She seems to be perfectly happy and contented. We are having a very pleasant time. The weather is quite cool Tomorrow we leave for Sanford which is two hundred miles from here and then we are going over to the Indian river which is three hundred miles further south consequently it will be much warmer. We have quite a good many Strawberries here. The hotel is very good. I sent you a box of Orange Blossoms this morning let me know hat condition they were in when received I am anxious to know as I sent them by a new methood. I received a letter from Mme Duval she is very much in need of money. You can all mail to Magnolia and it will be forwarded. Mr. Edison is well and will be happy when he gets on the Indian River as there is plenty of Game there. Mrs Renner is well and sends love to you. I am glad that you have time to take Dottie out occasionally. I am sure I can never thank you enough for your kindness to her. Hoping to hear from you soon I am Yours sincerely Mrs. Edison. P.S. Please give kind regards t Major Eaton, [??], McLaughlin and Mr Johnson
