Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Most of Harry’s letter dealt with an impudent student. Bruff went on to be the “premier architect” in Kokomo, Indiana (https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/2596907/).

“I guess I must improve this chance to tell you about one of the seniors[,] the fellow whom I booted out of the dormitory last Fall[,] Mr [James Franklin] Bruff.” Osborn, Henry 1886-3-30
