Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

In another short letter, Effie wrote of very little.

Harry’s letter spoke again about his battle with the blues and clarified his stop in Baltimore.

“Just one week from tomorrow darling you will start for home.” Osborn, Effie 1885-12-9

“I have almost no one but you to talk with & no one with whom to talk freely.” Osborn, Henry 1885-12-9
