Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie wrote to approve of Harry’s packing plan and to let him know that his sister Carrie’s engagement was now official, although her fiancé’s parents didn’t know about it, yet.

“I had another letter from mamma and f she is still in a peck of trouble, and so my last hope of her coming has been given up.” Osborn, Effie 1886-6-2
