Keeping Edith Wharton's World Alive

I am distressed to hear that The Mount may be in danger of foreclosure.
Edith Wharton Restoration has struggled for years to renovate and
preserve this historic home for the enjoyment of the public. Through keeping
this home open to guests, you keep Edith Wharton's world alive.
I have visited The Mount twice and can see why Edith was drawn to the
tranquillity of the Berkshire woods. It is a perfect writer's retreat,
and for a nature-nurturing mind like Edith's, it provided the perfect
setting for creating many masterpieces.
I hope you will accept a donation toward keeping this historic
treasure open. Through your dedication to preserving Edith Wharton's home, you
have preserved her life, legacy, and work. Those of us who value these
appreciate your continued efforts.
