Frankenstein Chapter 19
Frankenstein and Henry spent several months in London before they went on a tour of Scotland. Frankenstein, still subject to fits of melancholy and fear, set out on his own for the fairly deserted Orkney Islands. He planned to work there on the monster's companion and promised to rejoin Henry in a few months. Frankenstein began his task although he was revolted by the work that excited him so long ago. He was uncertain of the monster's presence in Scotland, so he worried about his family's safety. Although he was motivated to work by a desire to protect his family, he still found it difficult to work on the second monster.
