from Van Helsing
to Mrs. Harker
LETTER (by hand), VAN HELSING TO MRS.
25 September, 6 o'clock
"Dear Madam Mina,
have read your husband's so wonderful diary. You may sleep without doubt. Strange
and terrible as it is, it is true! I will pledge my life on it. It may be worse
for others, but for him and you there is no dread. He is a noble fellow, and let
me tell you from experience of men, that one who would do as he did in going down
that wall and to that room, aye, and going a second time, is not one to be injured
in permanence by a shock. His brain and his heart are all right, this I swear,
before I have even seen him, so be at rest. I shall have much to ask him of other
things. I am blessed that today I come to see you, for I have learn all at once
so much that again I am dazzled, dazzled more than ever, and I must think.
the most faithful,
"Abraham Van Helsing."
