While the ruins of halt of the oily were

The greatest loss has lallcn on the

and they have lost not only their homes

In Ihe ml&t of the gloom caused by the
staggering blow to the city, residents
found cause for thankfulness In tho fact
that the more noted buildings and the
museums, with their priceless collections
of antiquities, were spared. The birth
place of Nathaniel Hawthorne, the "house
of seven gables," and the old custom
house were threatened for a time and
the flames approached dangerously close
to the Peabody Museum and the Essex
Institute, but none of these structures
was damaged.
The mllltla summoned to assist to
