This folder contains documents relating to Edison's property at Silver Lake (Bloomfield/Belleville), New Jersey. All of the items for 1918 pertain to the operation of the potato farm that Edison had established in 1917 in an effort to alleviate high prices and food shortages resulting from wartime conditions. Most of the business was handled by Richard W. Kellow, secretary of Thomas A. Edison, Personal, and there is no evidence that Edison himself was directly involved. Included are correspondence, employee potato orders, and financial statements showing that the farm lost even more money in 1918 than in the preceding year.
