Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote of a visit to see the Schenck children and continued problems with the post office.

Harry’s letter was a short one due to fatigue but he updated Effie on the outcome of the previous night’s disruptions.

“…my visit there was the only one since Minnie’s death that hasn’t literally tortured me.” Osborn, Effie 1885-10-31

“I have been out since dark & it has been pouring & driving rain most of the time.” Osborn, Henry 1885-10-31
