This folder contains two letters concerning Edison's relationship with industrialist Henry Ford. In the first letter Ford acknowledges the receipt of Edison's autographed photograph and recently published biography, expresses his "heartfelt thanks" for the gifts, and reminisces about his first encounter with the inventor in 1896. The other letter, by automobile manufacturer William C. Anderson, discusses arrangements for a meeting between Edison and Ford in West Orange.
