A description of Dracula

The count stepped forward and uncovered one of the dishes. At once I started eating an excellent roast chicken. My supper was this chicken with some cheese and a salad. There was also a bottle of fine old wine, and I drank two glasses of this. While I was eating, the Count asked me many questions about my journey, and bit by bit I told him about everything that had happened.

By this time I had finished my supper. The count asked my to pull up a chair by the fire. When I had done this, he offered me a cigar. He did not take one for himself , saying that he did not smoke. While I was smoking, I had a chance to look at him properly. In fact the count's face and head were quite remarkable.
