My advice to you, if you could see your way clear to take it from me, would be to argue your points in the different questions you are interested in, and let me argue whatever points I prefer. If you could stay away from claiming that "yesterday it was A, and now it is B", I would be very grateful. I always have a rational reason when I abandon A for B, you may rely on that, and I would appreciate if you took my word for it. Likewise, if you were ever to change YOURm ind on something - not that it is a frequent thing - I will gladly let you do so without making out that you are a less reliable person for it.
Thanks for the new thread on Killeen! As for me, I have said what I wanted to say about the accusations that Killeen would have been incompetent in any way - it is impossible to prove. After that, any further discussion on the topic is moot and useless, I think, unless you are anticipating a discussion on the levels of competence amongst doctors in general back then - such a thing would be interesting!

Which is a credit to you. Anyone who will not changed their mind will not learn anything. The implication that a changing opinion is a sign of weakness is quite primative.

Regards, Jon S. It can scarcely be doubted that the same person who murdered several poor women in August and September in Whitechapel has returned to his old haunts, and been again at his hideous work. Two such monsters in human form there cannot be. The murderer of Mitre-square is, no doubt, the murderer of Dorset-street.
