This folder contains foreign-language documents that were not translated by Edison’s office staff, along with others that were translated and subsequently separated from the English-language version. The items for 1911 consist primarily of unsolicited correspondence from admirers in Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Included is a letter from the proprietor of "Café Edison," a coffeehouse in Vienna. Also included are requests for Edison's autograph, charitable contributions, and advice on promoting ideas, inventions, and careers. A few correspondents offer services to Edison, seek an interview with him, or submit poetry in his honor. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
