A message from Dracula
He went, but immediately returned with a letter: "My friend, welcome to the Carpathians. I am anxiously expecting you. Sleep well tonight. At three tomorrow the coach will leave for Bukovina; a place on it is reserved for you. At the Borgo Pass my carriage will wait for you and 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 directed him to book the best place on the coach for me. But when I asked the landlord for details about this he didn't want to talk about it, and pretended that he could not understand my German. This could not be true, because up to then he had understood it perfectly; or at least, he had answered my questions exactly as if he did.
