Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

After tasking Effie for not writing more often, Harry corrected some of her writing errors and encouraged her to improve her mind. He used himself as an example of what happens when social enjoyment takes up too much of one’s time.

“Well dearie I know that I am an old grannie & old fashioned.” Osborn, Henry 1884-10-9
