New Vicar/Druitt Source Found

David Orsom has found a new source that is about both Druitt and the Vicar and, in my opinion, it further vindicates my 'case disguised' theory.

I have to put it in context and so the source does...

Hard to tell, I would guess not -- because the son writes about his father relying on Macnaghten and this professional relationship is characterized quite benignly (and blandly).

Druitt and Macnaghten are in "The Lodger"

Protracted, not brief

The so-called "Jack the Ripper" murders lasted between 1888 and 1891. That is how the press, public and various factions of the police perceived the case (e.g. from Smith to Coles); as protracted,...
