Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry responded to Effie’s letter about Sue, assuring her that he didn’t blame her for her feelings. He talked about his work (more worm sections!) and complained that he hadn’t found “minds” at Purdue to help him along in it.

“I have for years been living a lie.” Osborn, Henry 1884-11-28
