Harry's drawing of the Vorticella

Harry’s drawing of the Vorticella

Feeling the effects of his new schedule, Harry barely had time to read Effie’s letters and write back. He explained the topic of one of his classes and provided Effie with a sketch of the creature (seen above).

“I really believe Effie darling that I should have been about incapacitated for work if you had point blank refused me.” Osborn, Henry 1884-9-17
