[Door shuts loudly]

- Mr. Harker. You will help me?

- Lf it's at all possible.

But why is Count Dracula

keeping you prisoner?

- I cannot tell you that.

- But if I am to help you, I must know.

I'm sorry, it's not possible.

You make it very difficult for me.

I am a guest here. If I'm to help you

I must have a reason.

A reason. You ask for a reason!

Isn't it reason enough that he locks me

in this house, holds me against my will?

You have no idea what an evil man he is!

Or what terrible things he does!

I could not.

I dare not try to leave on my own.

He would find me again, I know.

But with you to help me,

I would have a chance.

You must help me! You must!

You're my only hope!

You must!

I'll help you, I promise.

Please don't distress yourself.

Thank you.

"I have become a victim

of Dracula and the woman in his power.

"It may be that I am doomed

to be one of them.

"If that is so, I can only pray...

"...that whoever finds my body...

"...will possess the knowledge...

"...to do what is necessary...

"...to release my soul.

"I have lost a day. Soon it will be dark.

"While my senses are still my own,

I must do what I set out to do.

"I must find the resting place of Dracula...

"...and there end his existence forever.

"Soon it will be sundown

and they will walk again.

"I do not have much time."
