8 July

Chapter 6 con't.
Dr. Seward's Diary

8 July—There is a method in his madness, and the rudimentary idea in my mind is growing. It will be a whole idea soon, and then, oh, unconscious cerebration, you will have to give the wall to your conscious brother.

I kept away from my friend for a few days, so that I might notice if there were any change. Things remain as they were except that he has parted with some of his pets and got a new one.

He has managed to get a sparrow, and has already partially tamed it. His means of taming is simple, for already the spiders have diminished. Those that do remain, however, are well fed, for he still brings in the flies by tempting them with his food.

I hope Jonathan writes something soon. I'm getting very anxious.

Also wondering how Lucy and Mina are doing in Whitby.

Am enjoying reading this. Thank you. Is it possible though you can append at the bottom when the next date for posting is going to be.

I am subscribed to the RSS feed but it would be nice to know, for example, that its not going to be updated for another week.

Thanks for your comment. I have thought about this, but I came to the conclusion that doing such an appendix would alter the suspense and therefore compromise part of the effect that I am trying for by "real time" installments. I hope this doesn't affect your experience negatively. Thanks for reading!
