[This note covers the entire Harry F Miller File for Part II.]
The documents for the years 1879-1886 consist primarily of agreements, powers of attorney, and other legal documents, often in the form of drafts or fair copies. Included also are financial documents, such as bills, receipts, promissory notes, accounts, and stock transfers; some correspondence; and miscellaneous company records, such as memoranda, reports, and lists of stockholders.

Many of the items refer to the establishment and operations of the Edison Electric Light Co., the Edison Ore Milling Co., Ltd., the Edison Telephone Co. of London, Ltd., and other Edison companies.
All of the documents for the years 1879-1886 have been selected except for duplicate copies, the brief summary sheets accompanying each envelope, and the envelopes themselves. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
