According to Comstock "The most desirable impressions are among those of the Fifth and Sixth states.
This scene, though wholly original, may perhaps owe something of its general character to memories of survivals at Campden and Winchecombe, in Goucestershire, an bear suggestions of a love of East Anglia" (p. 60).
