Jonathan Harker approaches, from The Fourth Bride:
"I was terrified of discovery and since I rarely knew where the sisters were, I was worried, but my desire to find out whatever I could, drove me on.
I found an immense room; filled with Dracula’s presence. Book cases lined the walls, going from floor to ceiling. There was a great table piled high with books and papers. A smaller table nearby was crowded with maps and journals. There was a log book too. When I opened it, a paper slipped out.
There were copious notes on it, none of which meant anything to me, but then I read something about a ship called the Demeter. There were notations along the margins, but the writing was so cramped, I could not make out what it said.
As I turned to leave, I saw some letters. I picked one up and read the sender was one Jonathan Harker.
Mr. Hawkins has referred your enquiry to me and I look forward...
That was all I read, for I was certain I heard footsteps. I flew back to the chamber to await his arrival.
