black is in trouble.

Jul-31-12  andyatchess: Surely black could have drawn with 35. Kh2

  whiteshark: <MEISTERBRAU: 31...Rf5 - win.> U'R R8!
Feb-02-18  JPi: <MEISTERBRAU> Indeed 31...R8f5 32.Be3 (32.RxN? Rf1+ 33.Kg2 R5f2#) 32...Rf1+ 33.Kg2 (33.KxN Rh5+) 33...RxR 34.KxR Nf1 Black wins. It's surprising Morphy missed such combination. But it's casual game with a good friend and a wine merchant "Is my Bourgueil good Paul?" I'm joking. I really prefer the King Gambit Arnous de Riviere won on Black side. One should not forget this amateur (As Paul Morphy was) won a match vs Lowenthal and nearly draw it vs Chigorin when this one became one of best of the world.
