Of course there are but then you are not comparing like with like. All institutions store documents in different ways.

The issue here, surely, is what has survived from the Metropolitan Police records. In this respect, there is nothing special about the Ripper files other than how much more has survived compared to other murders of the period.

Except of course from the secret police files.

Didn't the authors Ralph Strauss and Douglas Browne have access to the Scotland yard files on the case sometime before 1956, and that Douglas Browne cryptically said that Macnaghten appeared to identify Jack with the leader of a plot to assassinate Balfour at the Irish office. If what he said is true this file as never been traced nor was it likely to have been destroyed in the war. Unfortunately all the city police files where.

Which were not Ripper files, thus confirming the point I made in my previous post.

No, I thought we were exchanging metropolitan police file reference numbers.

Was so excited when you started it.
