Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

In spite of being very ill, Effie wrote a long letter that probably wasn’t to Harry’s liking.

“I know that people often love very desperately but they dont have the trust that I feel is necessary, and I begin to fear you lack this trust in me, & without it your love cannot be as strong.” Osborn, Effie 1885-1-11
