Compare the Fisherman’s Rest at Dover to Le Chat Gris at Calais. What do the settings and behavior of the people reveal about the differences Orczy wants the reader to see between the two cultures.

The Fisherman's rest seems to be a place of refuge. French aristocrats find their first sense of safety here. Le Chat Gris at Calais seems more menacing and fraught with danger. Both these places represent the respective themes of the story, the French chaos and the English civility (refuge from the French chaos).
