Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie chided Harry for not being satisfied with short letters, even though he had said he would be. She then answered his question about people’s reactions to the news of their engagement.

“He watched you every time you moved, no matter what he was doing, or who he was talking to his eyes were always on you & followed you wherever you moved, and if they didn’t speak love then I will never be sure of anything again.” Osborn, Effie 1885-1-7
