Harry's depiction of 1885

Harry’s depiction of 1885

On the first day of the new year, Harry shared with Effie memories of his youth, including the summer he met her.

“He was the sort of boy that one sometimes hears called a cuss, for he was always sure to be in the way & to be the one to blame for every thing[,] to break windows[,] picture glasses[,] table ornaments[,] chairs etc without number & he carried for a long time title heedless Harry[,] an alliteration that contains a germ of truth I suspect.” Osborn, Henry 1885-1-1
