Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Today, Effie wrote about her day-to-day life, recounting interactions with Mr. Artz and her friend, Mabel Cohen.

Harry responded to her letter about their wedding-planning misunderstandings.

“Mr. A. says I would make a good lawyer, and he said I made several very good points, & suggested one or two to him.” Osborn, Effie 1885-10-20

“You know Effie the kind of woman I admire & you know you are that kind.” Osborn, Henry 1885-10-20
