"Hall in the Old Manse," Illustration by Louis K. Harlow (1850-1913) from Haunts of Hawthorne published by L. Prang & Co., Boston, n.d.

Illustration includes the following passage by Hawthorne: "How gently, too, did the sight of the Old Manse, best seen from the river, overshadowed with its willow and all environed about with the foliage of its orchcard and avenue,--how gently did its gray, homely aspect rebuke the speculative extravagance of the day!"
