[FM001ABI], Letter from Jane Eliza Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, August 7th, 1889

Editor's Notes

11-6064. [Oak Place] The little boys left yesterday with Mr. [Pitt?]. They were very good while hear and I think enjoyed their stay. They were their which suits my afternoon as they played tennis and McGill got them cleaned again for Chataqua. We kept back some of their underclothes, handkerchiefs and [nighties?]--I guess they will be all right. We told Mr. [Pitt?] to bring them here to meet Miss McMillan the first of September. I don't know the day of the week but will look it up, and if it comes so that it will bring it in the middle of the week for them to get to Chautaugua they had better come the last of August here, unless you give directions we will have to tell them I suppose. I gave them forty dollars. I suppose that be enough. Baby is as sweet as can be. She calls Mother Mama and seems so fond of her. She has one of the best memories I ever saw. Whenever Ira and Cora come over she immediately asks for the baby. She knows your picture everywhere, she sees it and there are several other pictures she calls Mamma. We hold her up the ones in Fhather & Mother's room to kiss--she knows Thomas and William and I think she will know you when you return. She is so bright and happy--she got up yesterday night in the middle of the room quite alone without a thing to hold to or near her and started off to walk. I think she would walk very soon if she didn't get so excited and was not so pleased over her progress. Mother thinks she will not take her to the Lake as she is doing so well at home. ## We receieved your letter from Sandy Hook. Glad you got along so well with everything. I think I will go to Chatauqualast of this week or the first of next. Of Baby is all right and Mother will promise not to work any. She will persist in ironing every week and I told her yesterday she must not do it any more. It is all nonsence. She always will do [whether?] the ironing is large or small. Everything is going on nicely and I hope everything will be good for you--I think if [Mame?] helps me and wants to I would let her stay to visit Italy. It is no telling when she will go again--she may go soon and she may not. I think I would stay if she can have a good [presence?] I had a letter from Marion, from Edinburgh--She was well but said nothing about joining you. ## We are all well-- ## You must write as often as possible--let me know if Mr. [Milliman?] and [Colgate?] aare on the ship. With Love to you all, Jennie
