Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry wrote of his concern over Effie’s health and told a story on himself.

Effie filled Harry in on her visit with his family, including a brief conversation with his father, but her main concern was the dearth of letters from him.

“Sympathy is one of the sweetest features of friendship & what is it in a friendship exalted to love like ours.” Osborn, Henry 1885-11-27

“What can be the matter?” Osborn, Effie 1885-11-27
