    History 27 Jul 1854 
    The following is a letter written by Osborn to his mother:
    No 36 Ash St. Boston July 27th /54
    To Mother-

    I have several times attempted to write, but there being nothing of interest transpiring, I thought it best to wait until I could get time to narrate something pleasing; but now, after some delay, I am determined to commence and conclude a letter.

    We are getting on finely in our musical class, and it will be closed on the 15th of Aug. next. The Boston Musical Convention, commences the next day, and continues one week longer; the day time for practice and the evenings for public concerts, of which, our class givs two, one of them will be the "Song of the Belle" by Schiller, contained in a double singing book of seventy pages, and the other "Mozart's Twelfth Mass", in Italian of about the name No of pages.

    The committee of arrangements hve engaged "Tremont Temple" for two nights with the big organ for $200, in which one of our concerts will be given. The next Tuesday after, the "Maine State Musical Convention" commences its session in Bath Me, Aug 29th and continues four days, under the instruction of Mr B. F. Baker.

    I went over to South East Boston Tues to see a ship of 3200 tons launched from Mr McCays yard.

    Today at recss one of the members of our class whilst standing in the gymnation room, where two ladys were swinging was struck by them and knoct over her head hitting the floor and stunding her st tha she did not recove for som time, her name was Miss Harrington.

    Mrs Millikin and her two daughters hav gon to cherryfield.

    It is quite warn here now! The cholery is rather still! I am well!

    I think some of going to West Bath this fall to teach a town school, and singing school too. L.D. White of Lewiston told me that he could get me a school where I could have from 25 to 28 dollars per month and a wrighting school too, but I don't know how that will be.

    Write to me It is getting dark and I must close.
    So good by
    Truly yours
    O.G.
