Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry shared a few items about Purdue and then expressed his sympathy for Effie’s mother’s feelings about losing her.

Effie wrote about house-hunting, her new saque and the servant problem.

“I am much alarmed over the threats of neuralgia & hope you wont have any serious attack.” Osborn, Henry 1886-3-5

“Jule gets credit, and full credit for every thing she does, and always has, and I must say when mamma goes for me it makes me mad as fury.” Osborn, Effie 1886-3-5
