[FP001AAB], Letter from Mary Emily Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, November 22nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

11-6066. [Rome] I am so provoked with that girl that is with you. I am just going to write you a note immediately to tell you to send her back with Mrs. Earle. She is anything to you and you can just tell her that you are going home for Xmas and you can't leave her there and so you take advantage of this opportunity to send her home with the lady that is to be with your daughter. I would not be played to death by anyone who invited herself as she did not would I hesitate in the least to tell her she MUST go home with Mrs. Earl. You may not have an other occasion for some time, and what is the use of missing this one and such a good excuse. I would not worry about Alice. I think she is alright. She has written me nothing and I don't think she sould want to go with me. I will tell you everything she says if she says anything. Mina, don't tell anybody this but I do so want to tell you and since you tell me everything I think you will let me tell you. I want Mademoiselle to go home with me to stay I mean, she loves me really Mina and I love her and she will come for forty a month and be a companion for me and teach the little boys french or german. Do you think it will be absolutely impossible? It is lovely of you to ask her to go to your house when we arrive and she appreciates your kindness, and you will probably see our two happy faces (for we are happy) presented at your day the 22nd or 23rd. Melle thinks that it is very kind of you and that she would love to go to you. Marion was here and has left now for Milan, etc. She seems very anxious for the time to come to settle down with Mrs. Earl. She gave me lots of messages for you and her Papa, which I will tell you upon arriving-- Now goodbye. Do not worry about things and be sure to send Melle home with Mrs. Earl whether she wants to or not. Don't miss that chance. Think a little about my plan with Melle and they can give me that as a Xmas present. I shall be as happy as a lark at home. Mina don''t worry, I am too glad to get there and if I were sure Melle C would have a pleasant Xmas nothing would mar my home coming. But don't for the world tell anyone. I tell it you in confidence and such it must be not even THOMAS ALVA must know he makes TOO MUCH FUN OF ME. Write heaps of love--I got the BEADS blessed by the POPE. Mary E. Miller
