Harriet Gordon Smith and L.M. Montgomery The Careful Ways of Duty

When a narrative history about a person is missing, the story defaults to a construction stitched together from genealogical dates, newspaper fragments, and census transcriptions. This is the case with Harriet Gordon. Her letters from L.M. Montgomery did not survive and Montgomery’s letters from her were destroyed along with all of the author’s other correspondence. Harriet Gordon’s descendents do not know her story and now I return it to them with as much relevant detail as I can locate. I hope that they can sort out each person from all the Hatties, Gordons, and Smiths listed here. The subheads used in this article are chapter titles from Anne of Avonlea., Source type: Print(0)
