Ah right, jolly good, then he can assist with why he asked that question.

And perhaps he can clarify whether the "diary team" are certain it was written in 1888/89 or just confident.

Personally, I'd also like to know if the book deals with how someone writing in the Victorian period could possibly have formulated a sentence which included the words "it was a one off instance".

Oh, and I'd also like to know why Mike Barrett attempted to acquire (and did acquire) a Victorian diary with blank pages in March 1992. Is that dealt with in the book?

Such a cynic! You find it easier to believe that the diary confession of the world's most infamous uncaught murderer, presented to the world by a man who had acquired a partially empty Victorian diary in 1992, is a fake, than to believe that it is genuine and written by a murderer who used phrases that weren't used by anyone else of that era, or indeed for decades to come?

Oh David, for shame....

Enjoy, Ike. You sound a little too excited - I would recommend laminating yours so it can be wiped clean as often as required.

I think, following on from your earlier post, Henry, someone needs to write the book "Jack the Ripper Diary: The False Facts". Now that, I expect, would be a good read.

Just a quick comment.

Until we see:
1. what it says?
2. What evidence is presented to back any claims in either direction. We are really whistling in the dark.

I note the publication date is September, so still awhile to go unless there is a massive leak.

I suspect that it would be rather a long read, too.

I have the uneasy suspicion that I've actually already read the book we're imagining..... about 25 years ago....
