[Dracula by Bram Stoker]@TWC D-Link book


30 September .-- I got home at five o'clock, and found that Godalming and Morris had not only arrived, but had already studied the transcript of the various diaries and letters which Harker had not yet returned from his visit to the carriers' men, of whom Dr.Hennessey had written to me.

Mrs.Harker gave us a cup of tea, and I can honestly say that, for the first time since I have lived in it, this old house seemed like home.

When we had finished, Mrs.Harker said, "Dr.Seward, may I ask a favour?
I want to see your patient, Mr.

Do let me see him.

What you have said of him in your diary interests me so much!" She looked so appealing and so pretty that I could not refuse her, and there was no possible reason why I should, so I took her with me.
When I went into the room, I told the man that a lady would like to see him, to which he simply answered, "Why ?" "She is going through the house, and wants to see every one in it," I answered.
"Oh, very well," he said, "let her come in, by all means, but just wait a minute till I tidy up the place." His method of tidying was peculiar, he simply swallowed all the flies and spiders in the boxes before I could stop him.
