The breathless interest nightly excited in crowded audiences by the performance of Preseumption: or, The fate of Frankenstein, and the unimpeachable moral of its design, together with the new and striking effects produced, has already established the new piece as one of the most decided and attractive favourites ever brought forward. The whole of the audience part of the house has been embellished with new and splendid decorations."
