“[Jonathan] has been under our care for nearly six weeks, suffering from a violent brain fever……He has had some fearful shock, so says our doctor, and in his delirium his ravings have been dreadful, of wolves and poison and blood, of ghosts and demons, and I fear to say of what.”

Let’s compare this to his journal.

Fearful shock? Check.

Wolves? Check.

Poison? Nope.

Blood? Check.

Ghosts? Nope.

Demons?! Well, he referred to vampires as “semi-demons” on 30 June.

“…and I fear to say of what.” Vampires, maybe? Check.
