Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

After a week of suffering, Effie was finally able to take up a pen again. She sent Harry details of the circumstances of the onset of the neuralgia and it symptoms. At the end of the letter she thanked him for the gifts he had sent.

“…I cant help wondering why one who is fond of lying around, and staying in bed, cant have a few things to give them an excuse, instead of their all coming to one who hates that sort of thing, and has so many things to do.” Osborn, Effie 1885-3-26
