Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote several pages on her experience of seeing “Tannhäuser” for the first time. She also told Harry that she was glad that he had sent Sue’s letter when he did for the timing allowed her purge herself of bad feelings. She revealed that she understood why friends could feel less loved by engaged couples.

“Every one has gone to bed so there is no one to interrupt me unless it is the “sand man” we used to hear about when we were children, and I’m a little afraid that he will make himself troublesome.” Osborn, Effie 1884-12-4
