A description of Dracula

The count stepped forward and took off the cover of a dish. At once I started eating an excellent roast chicken. This, with some cheese and a salad was my supper. There was also a bottle of old Tokay, and I drank two glasses of this. While I was eating, the Count asked me many questions about my journey, and I told him by degrees 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. I did this and began to smoke a cigar which he had offered me. He did not take one for himself, saying that he did not smoke. I had now an opportunity to see him properly. In fact his face and head were quite remarkable.
