Read Dracula in real time.* During the day, Jonathan tries to return to the room where he met the vampire women, but finds the door blocked. In the evening, the Count asks him to write three post-dated letters, two (dated June 12 and 19) about his impending departure for home and another (dated June 29), stating that he has just left the castle. Jonathan writes in his journal, “I know now the span of my life. God help me!” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula.
