1.- A vampire is the body of a dead person that drinks the blood of living people. If you look a vampire in a mirror, you see nothing. During the day it lies quietly in its coffin, but al night it comes out and tries to catch people. It has long sharp teeth, and it bites into people's neck and leaves two small wounds there. After a time, the person will get ill and then become a vampire too.

You can frighten a vampire away if you wear a circle of garlic flowers around your neck. Or you can hold a holy cross, or put holy bread in its coffin. The best way to kill a vampire is to take a hammer and drive a long piece of wood trough the vampire's heart.

2.- Dracula is a tall person. His clothes are all black. His hair is black too and his face is white , but his mouth is too red. His teeth are big like animal teeth. He lives in Transylvania but his English is very good. He is very dangerous, because he can became in an animal, can fly, can disappear to the moment and he can drink your blood.

3.- Jonathan to Mr. Hawkin. The Count has asked me to stay here for another month. I hope that you will not need me in the office.

My work in Transylvania is finished and I am coming home. I'm at Bistritz already, and will see you soon. Jonathan to Mina.
