Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

The pressures of Harry’s “capers” and his family’s begrudging acceptance had made Effie’s week a miserable one. She told him that she was good at scolding, if that was what he needed.

“It was all a little more than I could stand & I finally worried myself sick.” Osborn, Effie 1884-11-21
