A message from Dracula

He went, but immediately returned with a letter: "My friend, welcome to the Carpathians. I am looking forward to meeting you. Sleep well tonight. At three o'clock tomorrow the coach will leave for Bukovina; I have reserved a place on it for you. My carriage will wait for you at the Borgo Pass, and it will bring you to me. I hope that your journey from London has been a happy one, and that you will enjoy your stay in my beautiful land. Your friend, Dracula."

4 May: I found that my landlord had got a letter from the Count. It ordered him to keep the best place on the coach for me. But when I asked the landlord to tell me more about this, he didn't want to talk. He pretended that he could not understand my German. This could not be true, because until then he had understood it perfectly; or at least, he had answered my questions exactly as if he understood me.
