[FI001ACM], Letter from Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison to Mary Valinda (Mrs Lewis) Miller, August 28th, 1889

Editor's Notes

This is Thursday and it does not seem possible that a week has nearly passed since I last wrote to my baby and its Grandmother. Oh, how glad I shall be to get back to them both. You must be to come on with baby, Mamma, and make me a visit as long as you can. I hope that the girls or Mrs. [Conroy?] will leave everythign in perfect order and that the house will look beautiful and clean. We shall sail on the 28th of September, arrivin home on the firth or more likely the sixth of October. It must be cute to see baby running about. I suppose she will be quite changed when I get home. I receieved the picture of babyand thank you very much for remembering me with it. Do you think it good of her? Has she been getting any more [teerte?] and does she say any more words? I am getting hungry to see her. You know how that is yourself.## It is terrible to try to do anything here, everything is so [crowded?] and everybody is on the make.##It seems impossible to go anywhere with Mr. Edison. We never get out as somebody is after him all the time. Although we have gone to a great many entertainments. This afternoon we are going to the house this afternoon to see some pictures.##I am so glad to have such good reports of all the babies. I must go now, this is only a how do you do letter, one to let you know that I often, often think of you but don't get the opportunity to say so. Love to all. Goodbye Mr. Edison hurrying me, Lovingly, Mina Aug 28th 1889
