How can i add first and last line to multiple files in a single directory by powershell?

Example: The directory is "Indexes".. It has the files like text files 1 to text files 100. Now, i want to add first line and last line to all those text files 1 to text files 100.

For a single text file i was able to do by,
$File = get-content 'path'
$firstline = 'info you would like to write in first line'
$lastline = 'info you would like to write in line line'
set-content 'path' - value $firstline, $file, $lastline


But for multiple files i was not able to do. Please help me with this. Thanks in advance.
