Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'H. W.': from the beginning to 'undergone or seen' (p. 146); from 'The copies' (p. 149) to the conclusion.
Dickens seems also to have added touches to passages primarily by Morley. For example, Dickens probably interpolated such sentences as the following: the sentence beginning 'H. W. is in this form' (p. 147); the sentence beginning 'In other respects' (p. 147).
The latter sentence is built up of imagery from the melodrama The Miller and His Men (1813) by Isaac Pocock (1782-1835). The Miller and His Men captured Dickens' imagination in his boyhood and early teens when he helped stage the play in elaborate toy-theatre productions. The play is the source of scores of allusions in Dickens' writings.
