Catherine's image of an abbey, "massy walls of grey stone, rising amidst a grove af ancient oaks, with the last beams of the sun playing in beautiful splendor on its high Gothic windows" is actually a quotation from Udolpho, "The light died away on its walls, leaving a melancholy purple tint, which spread deeper and deeper, as the thin vapour crept up the whole edifice was invested with the solemn duskiness of evening."
