These letters from Lewis Alexander Miller (1863-1943) to his younger sister, Mina Miller Edison, are from 1889 and 1892. The 1889 letter mentions that Mary Elizabeth Goodrich, widow of rubber manufacturer B. F. Goodrich, had relocated to Boston where her two boys were attending school. The 1892 letter includes comments about a cold that their mother, Mary Valinda Miller, had contracted and about a "family reunion on the canal" (possibly a reference to the town of Canal Fulton on the Ohio and Erie Canal, where several members of the Miller family lived).
