Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

A good portion of both letters today were about mail deliveries. Harry also told Effie about a dream he’d had and she wrote about a death in the family.

“Yesterday Dr. Smart asked me if I didn’t want to earn a couple of dollars by writing a number of letters for him on the Calligraph.” Osborn, Henry 1886-3-18

“You like every thing down in black and white.” Osborn, Effie 1886-3-18
