Message of Sympathy on the Death of Thomas Alva Edison.
October 18, 1931

MR. EDISON was as great in his brave fight for life as he was in the achievements which have made the whole world his debtor. I mourn his passing not only as one of the greatest men our nation has produced but as a personal friend. On behalf of the nation I express the profoundsympathy of all our people and Mrs. Hoover and I personally extend our deepest sympathy to you and your son and daughter in your irreparable loss.
HERBERT HOOVER

[Mrs. Thomas A. Edison, Llewellyn Park, West Orange, N.J.]
