Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry wrote in response to Effie’s letter about Sue’s reaction to their engagement and encouraged her to tell him all her feelings.

“Latin is nice to know & Virgil is good to have read but I put a higher price on the things in education that are useful & can be made a source of comfort & joy every day.” Osborn, Henry 1884-11-22
