Yes the sample size is very small I agree. And I also agree we cannot generalize.
The sample does however show that Lechmere only having his address in one report was not unique in the Nichols case.

I will be interested when I look at Mitre square to see if similar happens for any of the witnesses there.

I think that people should consider that Central Press was not the equivalent of modern day Associated Press, and individual reporters were under no obligation or had no mandate to share whatever they uncovered with any news pools.

A series of posts. See the Bucks Row Project and project 2 thread.

Part 3 which is underway will give full discussion on many of the theories about Bucks Row.
The Mitre square stuff will follow next year. Wickerman has already done something similar I understand, it will be a source for others to use.

Hi Steve.
Very interesting.

Yes, I took the testimony of each witness in the Eddowes case and compiled about eight different sources which reported on that same testimony. This provides a deeper and broader understanding of what the witness was saying. and naturally, a clearer understanding of what may have occurred that night.

There is also a larger study of the Kelly inquest, I posted that on the JTRForums some years ago. It has now expanded to 20 sources (19 newspapers + the court record), and comprises 73 pages.
If these are any help in your future studies I would be more than happy to share what I have.

I was asked once if I would consider publishing it in Ripperologist, but when I pointed out the size, I never heard back, it's not surprising.

Thanks Jon,

I may take you up on the Eddowes stuff so we can see 2 sets of comparisons.

Yes Ripperologist like about 4000 words so I can see why 73 pages is a issue.

My stuff is not only up here and on JtR forums but if anyone wants to statements(part 2)
I will happily send it, minus my comments by email as a set of searchable PDF files for nothing.


Will get back to you on it next year sometime.
Thank you for the offer, sharing research and working with others is something I greatly am in favour of.

Steve
