Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Today, Harry wrote mostly about Effie’s plan for meeting him when he returned East. He also told her that the $1200 he wanted for the next school year was now dependent only on Professor Barnes actually receiving the offer from Harvard.

“O you precious lovely Effie[,] you are perfectly lovely & have hit upon the loveliest plan that could have been possibly devised.” Osborn, Henry 1885-4-28
