The unopened documents Hawthorne describes are part of the fiction he creates. What details does he include to persuade his reader he is describing actual, historical documents?

    The people in the customs house are idlers and not very interesting--non fantastical types, not like the extraordinary tale of Hester Prynne. He mentions pedestrian details of customs work and shipping.

    yes. thank you. What does Hawthorne mean to signify by his account of the "burning heat" of the letter? How does this detail affect his pose as a historian presenting an account of actual events?

    He means to suggest that the guilt associated with 1647 is alive 200 years later in 1849. On the other hand, he has now become involved in the story rather than an objective, disinterested reporter
