Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry reviewed his thoughts about their wedding date, described his visit with Bishop Foster (for more on the former president of Drew Seminary go to https://uknow.drew.edu/confluence/display/DrewHistory/Randolph+Sinks+Foster), and lamented the lack of material to write about.

Effie’s letter was mainly about “the help.”

“I know that for several days after I get back I shall be good for nothing except to ask you over & over if you wont tell me you love me & call me names.” Osborn, Henry 1886-4-15

“We have had an awful time with the cook today, and she has got to leave when her month is up.” Osborn, Effie 1886-4-15
