[X018C9AL], Letter from Mary Emily Miller to Mina Miller (Mrs Thomas A.) Edison, October 27th, 1889

Editor's Notes

My Dear dear Mina, Although you have not deigned to send me more than a telegram I am going to be forgiving and write you a letter # You have mised the greatest treat I ever had in my life Italy is enchanting and I really find the it themost intesting of all my trips - My dreams of Venice were in the not in the least shatteredby the realization if anything they nowhere equaled the real Venice it is so much more mysterious than ine can imagine that was what impressed me most in the city . At Milan we saw a most beautiful frescoe by Leonardo de Vinci I t was the scene of the last supper and although ut was very old and very much repaired off again still it was a great beautyin it especially in the church- you have propabably seen copies of it for I had seen them before. I ofren wished that you has made up your mind to say with me and take this little trip through Italy I think it would have done you good and we all things so agreeably non with that horrid rush We saw her name in the Registerand so asked when they had been here. I have written her since you left but have recievedno word from her so expect she is traveling hard so as to see everything and has not time to write. I know how hard it is to write when travelling.# How do you find everything was it all right ot all wrong as you expected it to be. I don’t know what to do about the bust the babt, I know not the the mans name or address but perhaos he stayed in America to finish MR. Edison and so finished the baby there also if not you must send me the address immediately or I can do nothing about it for I have only seven weeks from today before starting for home# How rapidly the time flys- its seems no time you were here and we were busy doing things together. What a time you had did you not? It seems so strange to you now I am sure that is is over . Thomas must be glad to be at home again wher he can rest from such things and work on things he enjoys. Give him my love Mina and tel him to be good to you- Mina Mademioselle is trying to find a husband for me for mad if Mr Edison and you do not soon produce your man that you have selected for me she will get a head of you- Well good night My dear Mina - kiss that sweet Baby Madeline for me and the little boys too- with many kisses for you and Thomas if I dare- your loving sister Mary E. Miller
