Theatrical Amusements – Robert Turnbull – 1837

This narration is just the review of the above mentioned title. I found it in an old magazine called, The Christian Quarterly Spectator, for 1838. It is shocking because it predates the television by 110 years and years before any motion pictures. But its description of the desensitizing process and the testing of what visuals the public will accept is descriptive of what is going on in our own day, but with a fraction of the indecency! How the author would have been shocked of what our godless generation is pressing on us as normal.
