1 It must be so nice to see strange countries.
2 It is more dangerous than you think in this country.
3 It seemed to have in it a whole history of the country.
4 All day long we seemed to dawdle through a country which was full of beauty of every kind.
5 Already the certainty that the Count is out of the country has given her comfort; and comfort is strength to her.
6 This may be so, for when the Magyars conquered the country in the eleventh century they found the Huns settled in it.
7 The country is lovely, and most interesting; if only we were under different conditions, how delightful it would be to see it all.
8 For a man who was never in the country, and who did not evidently do much in the way of business, his knowledge and acumen were wonderful.
9 It is so constant, in all countries and at all times, that even police, who know not much from philosophy, come to know it empirically, that it is.
10 It is a lovely country; full of beauties of all imaginable kinds, and the people are brave, and strong, and simple, and seem full of nice qualities.

13 I find that the district he named is in the extreme east of the country, just on the borders of three states, Transylvania, Moldavia and Bukovina, in the midst of the Carpathian mountains; one of the wildest and least known portions of Europe.
14 I was not able to light on any map or work giving the exact locality of the Castle Dracula, as there are no maps of this country as yet to compare with our own Ordnance Survey maps; but I found that Bistritz, the post town named by Count Dracula, is a fairly well-known place.
15 The sound was taken up by another dog, and then another and another, till, borne on the wind which now sighed softly through the Pass, a wild howling began, which seemed to come from all over the country, as far as the imagination could grasp it through the gloom of the night.
16 Having had some time at my disposal when in London, I had visited the British Museum, and made search among the books and maps in the library regarding Transylvania; it had struck me that some foreknowledge of the country could hardly fail to have some importance in dealing with a nobleman of that country.
