I was bitten in Southampton. They are rare there, consequently I believe I should be forgiven for thinking it was a spider or hornet or similar ghastly insect.
The ointment you provided me proved efficacious, naturally. It reduced the swelling and, perhaps, pacified the fever somewhat. I apologise profoundly for biting you whilst you comforted me, but in the frantic height of my fever I was unaware of my actions. I trust in your forgiveness.
My distaste for daylight continues. I find it inexplicable; but I am assured it is perfectly natural after falling victim to a vampire.
