An Old Monarch

An Old Monarch


Harry and Effie with “An Old Monarch”

Harry was feeling less blue so he was able to write about what had been going on. He updated Effie on Miss Weed’s eyesight, his latest purchase (see above), and his hope for time off because of Vice President Thomas Andrews Hendricks’ funeral (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_A._Hendricks). I’ve been unable to identify the Bach air, whose title he seems to have misspelled.

“There are things enough you have to do without doing utterly useless things & I might have had forethought enough to see that it would be a bother to you to get the thing.” Osborn, Henry 1885-11-28
