“I know now the span of my life.”

Other people might have drawn the conclusion that the Count would get rid of Jonathan as soon as he had these alibi letters in hand. However, Jonathan’s assumption turned out to more correct, so I suppose I ought not to quibble.

Why demand the letters at this point in time, or at all? Jonathan had just had a close call with the three women; if the Count had not arrived in time to rescue him, then that may have derailed his plans. Also, the Count may have been concerned that in future, Jonathan would be unwilling or unable to write letters upon request. Since Jonathan was later incapacitated by brain fever, perhaps there was already cause for concern on that front.
