[X018C6A3], Letter from Lewis Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, January 23rd, 1888

Editor's Notes

[CEF originals.] Dear Mina :- They are going to hold their "kniting party" next Friday night and Mrs. Lake, who is chairman of the committee, wants that picture of that gentleman who is so deeply interested in having his strip knit and if you still have it, I wish you would send it to me. Don't fold it up but roll it up around a little wooden roller or put it into a tube. Please send it as soon as possible after you receive this as the time is very limited. Everything is moving off here very nicely; folks all well; mother was a little under the weather last week, in fact had quite a serious time with a little bealing on her hand, of which you have no doubt had full particulars. Rob's Wedding anniversary takes place next Wednesday evening; we all expect to go down. I just learn this morning that Mr. Edison is expected to go to Chicago on the 8th of February to the annual meeting of the United Light Association. Now can't you come with him this far and stay here until he returns and then have him stop over and spend a day with us? This would give all of us great pleasure. Mr. Card has just got here this morning and has started in to change our shop lights to the municipal system. I think it will be of some interest to Mr. to see the work as it preogresses and he can possibly give some assistance as it will be important to have it all go off well. How is the phonograph coming on? I heard through Mr. Marvin that they had kind of checked up on that and were working on the talking doll. Have they got that complete? My health is gaining daily. My regards to Mr. Edison and the boys. I was greatly pleased with the waay the boys were growing both in disposition and manhood. Surely you ought to be gratified to think that you have had so much influence over them. I could see a very great change and if they keep on a year more in the same line you shall certainly have cause to be proud of them. I think this is true of Marion as well. Yours resp'y, Lewis Miller
