The creature has murdered Henry Clerval. A crowd of people observes Victor's approach with suspicion as Victor shows up just after Henry's body was discovered in the water; they rain verbal abuse upon him and cry that he is a villain. A bewildered Frankenstein is told that he must go see the magistrate, as he is suspected of being responsible for the death of a man who was found murdered the previous night. Victor becomes depressed and despondent. He no longer wants to live and seems willing to accept punishment for something he did not do.
