These letters are from Edward B. Miller (1859-1936) to his younger sister, Mina Miller Edison. There is also one letter by Elizabeth Lewis ("Betsy") Miller, whom Edward married around 1919. The selected letters cover the years 1886-1896, 1918, and 1930-1932. Included are references to the Edison homes in New Jersey and Florida; visits with the Miller family in Akron, Ohio; and financial difficulties confronted by the Miller family’s businesses. An undated letter, probably written in January 1930, discusses Edward's plans to spend part of the winter in Florida.
