Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote just a note because of a bad headache.

Harry assessed their feelings in the first part of his letter and then wrote of going to the musical convention for a second time. He also encouraged Effie to settle on a June wedding.

“I feel sick all over but not blue.”  Osborn, Effie 1886-1-28

“The whole room had faded out of my sight & I saw you & was with you & it was total self forgetfulness for a bit but her question bro’t me back.” Osborn, Henry 1886-1-28
