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


Was the body of Miss Lucy in that coffin ?" "It was." The Professor turned to the rest saying, "You hear, and yet there is no one who does not believe with me." He took his screwdriver and again took off the lid of the coffin.
Arthur looked on, very pale but silent.

When the lid was removed he stepped forward.

He evidently did not know that there was a leaden coffin, or at any rate, had not thought of it.

When he saw the rent in the lead, the blood rushed to his face for an instant, but as quickly fell away again, so that he remained of a ghastly whiteness.
He was still silent.

Van Helsing forced back the leaden flange, and we all looked in and recoiled.
The coffin was empty! For several minutes no one spoke a word.
