[X104MA], Letter from Lewis Miller to Mary Valinda (Mrs Lewis) Miller, 1889

Editor's Notes

Dear Wife Your letter came to hand yesterday was glad to hear things at home were still moving along so smoothly Its so quiet here at Minas, since you and Mame left It hardly seems possible that tw such quiet people as you and mame are could make such a change Mr Edison had been quite busy at the Laboratory up to this time It does seem that he will soon have less to do everything is coming on nicely He will soon to to the mines Thus when I am gone Mina will be lonely indeed I do think Mame ought if possible come and stay with her Mr Edison could not understand why she went home. Marian started for Europe yesterday morning. I think she intends to stay in Europe as she told some one [as much] that her furture home. I do think it will be good thing for Mina and the boys to haver her (Marian) further away than she has been so long as she does not intend to live at home. She had the boys especially all unsettled. Mr Edison said he wanted her to get away from here as he put it and thinks her going to Europe is really the best thing. He did not go to the steamer to see her off and [didn't?] want Mina to go. Mina had intended to go but though Mr Edisons persuasion she gave it up. She sent her for the steamer note a beautiful boquet and a basket of fruit. Marian come to the house and bade Mina and the rest of them good by on last Thursday. Mr Edison was at the laboratory so she went there to see her Father. Mr Edison said he did not see her one second [at ther]. He thought what she thought visit about was to [sure] of her money. I have said too much about this. I was to church with Mina thismorning. I feel quite will was over to New York yesterday looking after a machine that was being set up in our N.Y. office. I am still waiting her at the request of Mr Lynch who wants to wait here until he gets some papers fixed all are well except Madeline she has again taken a little cold She has been quite well Love to all Father.
