I guess I love ragging on Van Helsing.
1) was that bit about the man whose fine house in London was sold out from under him when he went to Switzerland, made up, or based on some real incident he could have known about?
2) "last night he banqueted heavily" -- Fred Saberhagen points out what a jerk thing this was to say, in his entertaining take on the story (The Dracula Tape). I also like his Frankenstein treatment (another book).

1) I don't know. Weird story.
Connects to the novel's concerns about fakes and simulation.
2) "he said, with actually a smile" - yes, Van Helsing can really be a jerk.
