Discussion board

In the section, “Visitors,” Thoreau writes about the “three chairs” he has in his house (77), considers the difference between “hospitality” and “charity” (84),  and describes the various “visitors” who stop by his cabin on Walden Pond (77-85). For this week’s online discussion, consider Thoreau’s views about both receiving visitors and being a visitor, especially in light of the last chapter where he wrote about the virtues of solitude.
