[FB003AA1], Letter from Marion Estelle Edison to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, April 9th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Affairs are in a terrible muddle. Mlle refused yesterday to take us girls traveling this summer. No things have turned out as they have I think first it would be just as well for me to go to Mrs. Earle in June. [Miller? Mama?] at present wants to come home but of course she will change. Mama it does worry me so for the girls seem so unhappy and discontented and I feel that it is all my fault. If I had never come then Aunt Janie probably would not have come wither and then of course nothing would have happenened. The next plan is to have the girls come down to our hotel and [?] until we start for travelling. I think as far as having the girls it would be very nice but as Aunt Jannice is young to send Mlle. Conway then she will have to chaperone all three of us. I know enough of such things to know that that plan would never work. The girls have already seen a great deal of Paris and of course they would not care to see every thing again, it is hard enough to get Aunt Jamie to go to olaces where she has been before, let alone having all three go to places they don't care to. We are going to call on Mrs. Earle this morning and see if she can take girls next summer. I doubt very much whether she can take US but I should think that she could take ME just as well now with what lady as she can in the fall. Aunt Jamie says that if she cannot get any person who is competent to take us this summer that she will take us herself, this is another of her many ridiculous flaws and I for one prefer to have some little say about things myself. This fuss has almost made a [relapse?] in [Mamies'?] sickness, she had hysterics the other night just because Mlle said that she wished that she had never met any of us and many other remarks of the same kind. I have not heard one word from home yet and this has been my fourth letter to you but I am almost reigned in my fate=supposed [----?] Give my love to dear Papa and the boy also to little Madeline every one I know sends love to her With much love for yourself I am lovingly, Marion Ano 9-4-89
