Abstract

14-7642. Looked for a letter from you yesterday and today, but had none; enjoyed your Friday letter; the boys were not "inclined to laugh at you for writing and feeling as you do"; "It would seem dreadful to me if you were not happy and loved your husband more and more"; I heard of a husband whose love for his wife increased over time as he got to know her character; I hope that will happen in your case; "What I have seen of Mr. Edison seems to me he is very patient, loving, & kind--and I think he is very fond of you"; don't fret about household cares; find some good servants, particularly a cook; went to a party with older married people, which made me feel like an old maid; will try to have everything ready to send or bring to you; perhaps TAE would rather I not come now since he said nothing to me about coming; don't wish to intrude; write to Mary; she feels neglected.
