Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry wanted no part of the luck Theodore Snyder had. He complained of express charges and said he would (mostly) submit to Effie’s choices of fashion for him.

Effie wrote about her dislike for Harry’s Uncle Watson.

“I cant imagine what makes me feel so fearfully tired tonight.” Osborn, Henry 1886-4-13

“Today has been so close & warm and it has taken all the life out of me, and I am simply good for nothing tonight.” Osborn, Effie 1886-4-13
