Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie was intent on compiling their wedding guest list and she informed Harry that the boarding house was having servant troubles again.

Harry had heard of a job prospect at Amherst Massachusetts Agricultural College (now the University of Massachusetts Amherst).

“Darling I want you to make out a list of the friends you are most anxious to have at the wedding.” Osborn, Effie 1886-5-9

“I have been thinking how you could manage at Madison and whether we could have our letters regularly and I think our best plan will be this.” Osborn, Henry 1886-5-9
