Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Effie let Harry know about another wedding present.

Harry’s letter was on the blue side again, mostly because his plan to get away early had been thwarted. He also hadn’t had much sleep as a result of patrolling the campus at night.

“Darling I dont know just what to say about the meeting.” Osborn, Effie 1886-6-4

“I have ground & struggled and suffered & endured & been disappointed & every thing else.” Osborn, Henry 1886-6-4
