from Abraham Van Helsing
to Dr. Seward
LETTER, ABRAHAM VAN HELSING,
MD, DPh, D. Lit, ETC, ETC, TO DR. SEWARD
"When I received your letter I am already coming to you. By
good fortune I can leave just at once, without wrong to any of those who have
trusted me. Were fortune other, then it were bad for those who have trusted, for
I come to my friend when he call me to aid those he holds dear. Tell your friend
that when that time you suck from my wound so swiftly the poison of the gangrene
from that knife that our other friend, too nervous, let slip, you did more for
him when he wants my aids and you call for them than all his great fortune could
do. But it is pleasure added to do for him, your friend, it is to you that I come.
Have near at hand, and please it so arrange that we may see the young lady not
too late on tomorrow, for it is likely that I may have to return here that night.
But if need be I shall come again in three days, and stay longer if it must. Till
then goodbye, my friend John.
