- Modern Spectator: compare the letter writers to the original Spectator and see how many are close to the original ideas

- Stylometric Analysis of each letter portion to see if any/all were written by Combe (and which ones weren't to eventually see if the named writer exists in any available records)

- What did William Combe read? A collection of his epigraphs.
