Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry and Effie were both dealing with the blues again. Harry asked Effie once more to tell him what kind of letter she liked best. Effie gave more advice on how he should deal with Mrs. Stockton.

“I didn’t feel as if I could write for I felt that you were kind of tired & sick of having me harp on the one string so I stopped harping on it for a change but I can’t leave that string out without spoiling the harmony.” Osborn, Henry 1886-3-16

“You seem to be under the weather too Harry and speak of not feeling well.” Osborn, Effie 1886-3-16
