Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Although she had planned to write a long, satisfying letter, Effie was equal to only a short letter to let Harry know that things were better.

“Oh my own Harry if you could only know what your letters have been to me thro’ all this horrible time.” Osborn, Effie 1885-4-13
