Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie’s entire letter was about her inadequacy as a writer but she also included a copy of a letter from her cousin Emma Bray Cohen about Emma’s father’s business collapse.

“I know as well as you do that I am not a success as a love letter writer….” Osborn, Effie 1885-3-5
