[FM001ABF], Letter from Jane Eliza Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, February 24th, 1889

Editor's Notes

11-6061.[Jane is about to sail for Europe along with Mina's stepdaughter Marion.] "'Oak Place" Feb. 24. 1889 Dear Mina, I was visiting in Canton for two weeks past, returned home last evening. I didn't feel that I could leave home so suddenly when it was not absolutely necessary. I will however sail with Marion a week from Wednesday if there is a good ship going, and of course I can go next Saturday if it is not. We can go on an English ship the Cunard line if there is not a good French ship going. I will try to be ready. Marion really wants me to take her does she. I had given up all thought of going while I receieved your letter last Wednesday.##I will try to do the best I can. I rather dread leaving mother alone with the poor help, we have but won't be for long. I wish you would plan to come on here for two or three weeks or longer. She will be perfectly happy, then will the little darling--I am anxious to see her. I suppose she has forgotten all about me by this time. [If we?] sail a week from Wednesday I will leave home week from tomorrow. Don't you think it would be best to meet me in the City instead of my going to Orange. I suppose of course you will get Marion's letter of credit from an Brown & Shipley. You will get it from Brown Bros. In haste Jennie
