Nesse trecho do livro, Dracula passa o dia fora e quando volta, encontra Jonathan bem à vontade numa biblioteca dentro de seu castelo:
Jonathan was surprised that there were English books on the shelves and Englilsh newspapers on the deskes. He spent the rest of the day there, reading happily.
In the late afternoon the count walked in.
'I am glad that you have found your way here,' he said. 'Since I decided to buy a house in England, I have tried to learn something about English life. I am sorry that I only know the language from books.'
