Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote a “note” today because she had to finish a sewing project. She just had time to react to the letters Harry had forwarded and to tell him not to worry anymore over delayed letters.

“The last week it has been just ready to drop to pieces, and I cant wear it again till it has a new facing, and a new binding, and regular overhauling.” Osborn, Effie 1886-3-20
