Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry’s emotions were erratic again with worries of new horrors ending the day. In spite of his fears, he was able to describe the outing to the Wea Plain. You can learn more about Mr. Earl at this site: http://www.ingenweb.org/intippecanoe/Bio_AdamsEarl.html.

Although Effie’s mother was doing better again, Effie continued to be worried about her health and other concerns, such as the denial of her mother’s claim on Cousin Gus and the fate of Rem’s children.
