Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Today Harry wrote more in depth about his relationship with his sisters and how they did not realize the sacrifices he had made on their account. He also told Effie about his visit with the Barnes family.

“She told me when I wrote her about the engagement that you were not just the sort of girl she had wanted me to marry….” Osborn, Henry 1884-11-14
