Well I know that, did I move and speak in your London, none there are who would not know me for a stranger. That is not enough for me. Here I am noble; I am boyar; the common people know me, and I am master.

– Bram Stoker

Dracula, Chapter 2. While Dracula agreed with Jonathan that he can speak English, he fears he could be easily picked out as a foreigner in London. He just wants to blend in and not appear foreign – this foreshadows that Jonathan will be detained at Castle Dracula so that the Count can learn the proper way to speak English afrom Jonathan.
