Default More than anything else...

Since reading my first Ripper book in 1984 I've always wished that I had the final answer to whether Jack wrote the GSG or not. I recall discussing it at length and, on balance, everything seemed to me to point to yes. I was always amazed when I heard people say that Jack cut away a piece of Eddowes apron to wipe his knife! I also recall that years ago there was debate about which part of the doorway the message was actually on.
More than any other area of the case this one was always the one I had discussions/debates around. I've been away from the subject for a while so I'm not up to date on current thought or research.
Regards
HS

I would love to know why, yes. And the answer would probably be disappointingly commonplace, but still...

Given it was the weekend before the Michaelmas term and that GSG was well written,perhaps we have a lecturer on our hands.
Prolly a medical one.
The height indicates someone about 5"3".
Hmm.

I remember it being commented on about the fact that not everyone would carry or own a piece of chalk. Who would? A school teacher, therefore Druitt. I also always assumed that it was written on the wall inside the doorway but it has been stated that it was on the jamb? Does this explain why the message was written in 4 lines rather than the more 'natural' 3? Why didn't Long notice it then when he first past the doorway? Also, if he used the cloth to wrap the womb and kidney, which to me, seems likely, it means that he would have had to go back to his room/house and then back out to an area potentially crawling with police just to discard a cloth that he could have disposed of in the fire or over someone's wall the next day. This points strongly to the idea that he placed the cloth deliberately, which surely points to the fact that it was a 'pointer' to the message. I need a tardis!

Timeline is worth a look.
Reckon Kate's organs were still at 6 Mitre Street.

Default I must be missing something here?

Sorry to appear dim but I don't understand the 6 Mitre Street reference?

Hi HS. I think Dave (DJA) believes his suspect had access to 6 Mitre Street, hence the reference.

Tailors used chalk too.
Not to mention countless other professions, and of course kids - I recall spending a large proportion of my childhood scribbling on walls and pavements with a lump of chalk.
