[MU029], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Elijah Wood Upton, August 31st, 1879

Item

Abstract

[written from Saratoga] I have been here since last Wednesday and shall stay until tomorrow evening. Mr. Edison has gone and left me to read his paper which you probably find in full in the Boston papers for Tuesday, as well as a few lines giving the summary of my paper. I have enjoyed my stay here very much and have made quite a number of pleasant acquaintances and an insight into the methods of carrying on such a meeting. The only drawback is the money it costs, but I think I am well repaid. I get half rates here at the hotel in common with the members of the association. [rest is personal, mainly about forthcoming marriage]
