This scrapbook contains clippings from August-December 1913 relating to a vacation taken by Edison in New England, a mild illness he suffered there, and his subsequent recovery. Some of the articles discuss the role of Mina Miller Edison in taking care of her husband during his recuperation in West Orange. Also included are a few clippings pertaining to the Old Time Telegraphers' annual dinner held in Detroit on August 28, 1913. Although some newspapers reported that Edison attended the reunion, a note by employee George House indicates that he did not. Lists of other newspapers that carried these stories have been added in ink. The spine is marked "Illness of T.A.E. 1913." The book contains 44 numbered pages.
