Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Although mainly a love letter, Harry found time to give an account of the Mendelssohn Quintette Club concert and to lament Miss Elder’s departure that day.

“We want the kiss & the love talk in the dark when we only whisper & then kiss again.” Osborn, Henry 1886-2-8
