a fire damaged the Hathaway Bookstore in June of 1944, people from all over the East Coast who had spent time there were devastated by the news, and soon a deluge of donations and contributions in the form of money, books, and kind words began pouring in. This one simple note, from a letter written by Margaret Deland, who gave a reading at the historic Hathaway House on January 19, 1942, sums up the value of Hathaway House perfectly: We are simply overcome by that loss to Wellesley of the Hathaway House. We have such happy memories of the charm of the house and of the gracious hostess, Miss Gordon. We can ill afford to lose those old houses so full of interest, reminding us of happier and simpler days. If you see Miss Gordon, please give her our condolences and our hope that what is apparently lost may soon be recovered. There are few centers like that in our noisy world.
