Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

In one of his rare, entirely “newsy” letters, Harry wrote about doings at Purdue.

“The first declamation was about an hour long more or less & was one of those harrowing things about a man who was harsh to his loving wife & she died & he was so sorry.” Osborn, Henry 1885-4-10
