Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote about her surprise at the reaction of her students to her upcoming departure.

“It makes me laugh for I know that after they all get started with a new teacher they’ll probably be glad they had to make a change, but now they act as tho’ there wasn’t another teacher to be had.” Osborn, Effie 1886-5-5
