Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie had received references from most of her students in Orange, New Jersey.

Harry told Effie that her wedding dress plans would be a surprise to his family. He worried over who should perform the ceremony and the legalities of their marriage.

“Darling today will finish my work in Orange.” Osborn, Effie 1886-5-19

“If there is much of a quandary over the matter we can have your mothers minister & possibly that would be the easiest way out of the matter.” Osborn, Henry 1886-5-19
