Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry wrote about his disappointment in his students and described Mr. Corey’s character.

Effie chided Harry for not telling her sooner about his anti-plumage position.

“He is one of the best natural men & hence least reliable for business purposes I ever saw.” Osborn, Henry 1886-5-3

“That is a nice way for you to feel toward me, and I dont think it at all complimentary, and am really quite annoyed about it.” Osborn, Effie 1886-5-3
