These three letters cover the years 1910 and 1929. The first letter, dated October 13, 1910, is from Madeleine Edison to Alice Sloane Anderson (1888-1961). It relates to Madeleine's secret engagement to Alice's brother, John Eyre Sloane (1886-1970). An undated letter by Alice Eyre Sloane (ca. 1855-1952) comments on daughter-in-law Madeleine's gallbladder operation in May 1929. A September 1929 letter by Alice Anderson remarks on Thomas Edison's recent illness.
The letters are froms Book #2 and #11 on the Charles Edison Fund microfilm. A few additional letters by members of the Sloane family can be found in Books #4 and #11. Click here for a list of all the correspondence books on the CEF microfilm.
