Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry’s letter also covered Effie’s bangs, how much her recent letters had helped him, the to-do about him and Miss Weed, and shoveling snow off the roof of the dormitory. The Kaga dish he mentions was a Japanese ceramic.

“You have gotten into my heart & somehow made it bigger & I can love more now that I could then.” Osborn, Henry 1884-12-29
