“‘The unexpected always happens.’ How well Disraeli knew life.”

For some reason, the blog’s version of this passage reads “The *expected* always happens.” which doesn’t make much sense in context.

Most Significant

“At any rate, we have proved one thing, that the spells of quietness last a reasonable time. We shall in future be able to ease his bonds for a few hours each day.”

Full marks to Seward for the humane impulse to remove Renfield from his straitjacket as much as possible. It’s just too bad that the asylum’s remaining security measures are insufficient to confine him. First there was shoddy construction / maintenance on his window, and tonight he is able to just slip through his room’s doorway and then exit the building!
