Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

The new year was off to a bad start with the blues plaguing both Harry and Effie in one way or another.

“You dont get really settled down until you have written several pages. ” Osborn, Henry 1885-1-6

“And I’m as blue over it, & worried as you can possible be, & I know you’ll be disappointed to get such a scrap.” Osborn, Effie 1885-1-6
