|“||Refugees seem to be coming in from all over.||”|
— Magistrate Hathorne
Refugees from the villages and towns nearby Salem, survivors forced to flee from the Indians and French, who have looted their homes.
Throughout the Salem series Edit
A mass of refugees accumulates at the borders of Salem, asking to be accepted as the Indians and the French have burned and looted their homes. Initially Magistrate Wendell Hathorne is not well prepared to receive them, even when a woman stands as a spokesperson for the needs of refugees, and let the militiamen threaten the unfortunate with shots as warnings to leave. To put in a good word with the magistrate is Isaac Walton, who relies on the great pride of Hathorne, saying that to be a great man, one is required to have a large following. Totally duped by Isaac's words, Hathorne allows the unfortunate ones to find refuge among the boundaries of Salem. (After the Fall)
