Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie filled Harry in on the state of Ada Underwood’s household and let him know that she might have to change the time she mailed his letters.

The American business climate was on Harry’s mind, as well as Effie’s health.

“Poor Ada is in an awful mess.” Osborn, Effie 1886-5-4

“We hear a great deal about rights of labor now a days but I never yet heard anyone who thought that the other party of the contract required protection.” Osborn, Henry 1886-5-4
