Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry reassured Effie that sending her $10 had not hurt him financially. He also wrote of his take on the flirtation between her sister Jule and Mr. Artz.

“You couldn’t tell me every thing you feel or wish or hope unless you believed in my love for you as a lover that wouldn’t rush out & squander every thing regardlessly.” Osborn, Henry 1885-11-19
