Mame has gone to walk Mr. Edison has gone to London but I am not feeling very well uncain us too write. This evening Lady Pender gives a dinner for us. The Lords and Lady's will be here at eight and I suppose everything will be very fine yesterday we took Luncherous with the Lord Mayor of Londons in the Mansion House which was a great honor. Mr. Edison has been greatly appreciated here but he is very tired and he as well as myself shall be delighted to be in Orange once more.##You will read this letter there with my little family. Tell the boys they must not scold me too hard for will inviting to there, for if I have not written I hear often and often though of these. I am glad they had such a nice time with their Uncle and Auntie and I hope they are also happy now.##We shall expect to meet them at the steamer and you and baby too Mama if you can manage so as not to wait too long for the arrival of the steamer. Little pet! You cannot imagine how long the time secures. Saturday we sail over the French Line, steamer Champagne.
