Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry told Effie that he preferred letters that the world would label “trashy” (i.e sentimental). He returned to his work on Limulus and referenced Ernst Haeckel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernst_Haeckel) and Anton Dorhn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_Dohrn).

“I shouldn’t like to have these letters published for they would seem to be devoid of interest to the “cold unsympathetic world” but I don’t expect to have them published.” Osborn, Henry 1884-10-15
