Dickens probably wrote most of the following portions of 'A Paper-Mill': from the opening to 'I am rags' (p. 530); from 'Of my being made' (p. 531) to the conclusion.
Dickens seems also to have added touches to passages by Lemon. For example, he may have interpolated the 'tooth of time' sentence (probably echoed from Shakespeare), the Boiling Room figure of speech, and the Macbeth allusion (p. 530). In addition, he probably intensified some of the political asides; and he certainly dictated the strategy of the essay.
'A Paper-Mill' is a good example of a 'process' article (the term is Dickens'). Dickens felt that such pieces, while remaining faithful to ordinary reality - while recording, for example, the procedures followed in such mundane industrial processes as manufacturing paper, refining gold, or making glass - should at the same time transform those processes (and by extension the entire workaday world) into something rich and fanciful, a transformation that could help people survive in an iron age.
