Terribly so, Jonathan awakes, still in the room, but he is not alone. There are three young women in the room, and they have a look of hunger and seduction. Their evil intentions were stopped when Dracula bursts in, enraged, and puts a stop to the mysterious ladies. The next thing that Jonathan knows is that he reawakens in his own room of the castle.
Two days later, Jonathan returns to the mysterious room where the three woman had approached him. He returns during the daylight so that he may investigate, and he hopes to find answers that will rid him of his fears and confusions.

The first letter was to say that his work was almost complete, and it would inform he would soon leave the castle. The second told that he would leave the next morning from the date of the letter, and the third was to tell of his departure of the castle and arrival of Bistritz. Jonathan is fearsome, The dates would be June 12th, June 19th, and June 29th but he decides to agree to everything for fear that
