This folder contains documents, primarily correspondence, covering a wide variety of subjects. Some of the material relates to personal matters. Also included are documents that deal with more than one subject, such as a letter about both the electric light and the phonograph. Documents concerning subjects that do not fall under the main subject categories are also filed in this folder. Among the items are several documents pertaining to Edison's plans for the West Orange laboratory and his attempt to obtain financial assistance from William Lloyd Garrison, Jr., and his associates in the Boston area.
