When reading both versions of the story, it is hard to see any clear, obvious differences, but as one reads further into the text, subtle differences in tones can be appreciated. In the 1818 version, Mary Shelley writes in a more sentimental, personal tone, making the letter less about Robert Walton and more about both of the characters' well-being. Walton concludes the letter by stating that he wants to be "Remember[ed] to [his] English Friends", illustrating that he is not only concerned about his and his sister's life, but also in his peers back at home. On the other hand, the latter letter accentuates a more detached, patronizing tone. The addition of the last two paragraphs can be interpreted as Robert Walton showing off his accomplishments rather than being concerned about his sister.

Or in some cases the bystander can feel shame by others around him and feel they didn’t pursue their role as a helping citizen. When a bystander does decide to get involved, they could be taking a big risk.
