[FI001ABX], Letter from Mary Valinda (Mrs Lewis) Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, Thomas Alva Edison, January 25th, 1888

Editor's Notes

15-8064.. As soon as Miss [Angle?] is able to take him I hope those two boys will make smart men, good also. Dear Mina, did Jennie leave her needle case at your house when she was ther, she has lost it someplace, and did dear Mina get a pair of Gloves for Eddie, I thought you did but he has not received them, it may be I am mistaken. Please let me know and all will be right. Eddie is at Louis [bra?] and Cora and little Margret are well and seem to be contented. They feel so [fond? Proud?] of that little chain and little Margret lookes so pretty in it, both together makes a pretty picture, well dear I will close for this time as [both?] letters will be all you will want to read at once. I feel sorry for [Helen & Loren?] it seemes sad we cannot have a good education and good health. Well good by. I have been under the weather a little as you will see when you read the letter that Jennie wrote for me last week, but it got laid aside some way and did not get started to you. I will sent it to you now so I nead not say anything more about myself only to tell you I am all right now and the reason I did not write on Sunday was that you [--?] Mrs. Vincent and Mrs. Lake and myself went down to Johnsontowne to attend the dedication of a church. Monday we were all getting ready for a little company in the evening and yesterday I with your pa took dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Vincent so I did not have time then to write but thought of it all the time, now you see after reading this that there is not very much of anything the matter with me, all talk, more that than anything else. Please do not worry about me in the least my darling, but do try and take the very best care of yourself. Pa is well also, his hand is most well. He had a long [bail?] on it, the doctor is taking care of him now. I hope he will soone be all right, as I can see every day he is improving a little, but all I can say or do I cannot get him to go to bead when he aught, It is to bad our dear ones will stay up so late at night, an hour before 12 is better than all the rest. After that now we are all well today, and do hope all are as well at your home. Hennie, Louise, Miss Anna and Mr.Marvin are going down to [albert?} Robbies and Frannies Anniversary. Pa and I think we would rather go dome other time and I do not think it would be well for Grace so I will stay at home with her dear child & she will soone be through with the school in Akron. I do hope she will do well, we had a very good letter from dear Maime, she feel very good with her prospects. John and Theoder are all right, also John commences Later, just We all join in sending love and good wishes to you and all try and take good care of yourself and Mr. Edison. I am glad the doctor is well again, I hope he will take good care of you and Mr. Edison. We all feel a little lonesome sometimes. I hope we will soon see each other and have a good time. Please tell me everything, from Mother.
