[MU023], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Elijah Wood Upton, July 13th, 1879

Editor's Notes

Today I have taken a walk and sleep, as is my custom on Sunday, when Mr. Eidson does not drive the work on to me. During the coming week I am going to work on a new job for me. I am going to make some scrap books out of some files of journals, relating to electricity. I became disgusted at seeing the file of papers waiting for some one to attack them, and so I offered to do my share. I think that Mr. Edison will go back to the Electric Light in full force about tow or three weeks from now until then I work on my own account testing and figureing and now cutting up paper. I have two boys to help me in making the scrap-books, so I think that I shall get through the four years of accumulated journals this week. I feel very well contented with my new arrangement, for it makes as good as any one here. I know have a say to a certain extent. There will be a great deal more money expended here and I have but small doubts of our ultimate success, and then three cheers. I am looking forward to Lizzie's coming with much joyful anticiapation as you may think. I shall go to New ork the first of August, to meet her and shall stay over Sunday. If the boat does not come then I shall take it for granted that it is delayed and return here. I cannot tell yet when we shall get married, that will depend entirley upon Lizzie.
