Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wasn’t feeling well but she was able to describe the latest opera she had been to and to let Harry know that she might be able to invite his sisters to visit in the near future.

“I’d rather hear [Wagner’s] opera’s repeated again and again than to waste my matinee tickets on these other things.” Osborn, Effie 1885-11-30
