Clifford's picture of the House of the Seven Gables bears a striking resemblance to Judge (or Colonel) Pyncheon; to Clifford, the house represents that aspect of the Pyncheon legacy. Clifford reveals his fear and desperation over the fate of Judge Pyncheon and his belief that a supposed criminal can still be redeemable.
