HLO drawing Professor Swans home

Harry’s drawing of Professor Swan’s home

Today, Harry shared complaints about Effie’s mother and sister. He also wrote about visits to Professor Swan’s and the Methodist church and about buying a print for his room. Although it isn’t clear from the letter, the Riverside Park Harry mentions was probably the one in Manhattan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riverside_Park_(Manhattan).
