Friendship with Marion Edison- Orr's Island, Maine

Before buying their own place in Maine, my grandparents rented a cottage on Orr's Island on the property of a family named Houghton. Next door to them each summer was Marion Edison, the daughter of Thomas Edison. Edee struck up a friendship with her despite the difference in their age. As a result of this friendship, Marion gave Edee a signed copy of her typewritten memoir. The signed page is here and a link to the exact same memoir can be found on Rutgers University website here:

Marion also sent Edee and Bernie Christmas cards each year. However, in that day a card that was printed with your signature was the norm of the wealthy so they are not hand signed.
