Effie's postal card to Harry

Effie’s postal card to Harry

First, Effie sent a note to Harry to let him know why her letter of March 31 continued to be delayed. In the letter she wrote later, she responded to one of his letters and then told him more about the plan for the new boarding houses.

“Did you ever know such luck?” Osborn, Effie 1885-4-2a

“You have no idea of the tremendous undertaking it is to move, and you cannot imagine how we all dread it.” Osborn, Effie 1885-4-2b
