Currently reading The Diary of Jack the Ripper by Shirley Hanson and it's mentioned that the Dear Boss letter and card provoked around 2000 "Jack the Ripper" letters. I'm not sure how accurate that number is, and i know they are probably all forgeries.
BUT it's got me a little curious and just wondering if there is anywhere i can read these letters? Maybe a website or even a book? I'm sure most have been lost to history but it does note that the collection of letters have been looked at by numerous people.
I know there are a few letters available to read on here but would like to read more of them.
I am on the fence re: the authenticity of DEAR BOSS and SAUCY JACKY. My wonder is: WHERE IS THE MJK LETTER?
There were enough hints to make the police consider those letters as coming from the murderer. Two letters within a week show an eagerness, intended or not, to be involved in the case. So I question why there wasnt any braggadocious letter put forth about the most heinous of the murders. I mean, i am certain that there were those false report or joke letters. I am talking about a letter that raised suspicions. A letter that talked a out leaving "a lovely mess", or "she had such lovely singing voice until i took it from her", or anything taking some credit for the murder that (supposedly) ends them all. Not receiving more eager letters around Nov 8 throws shade on the authenticity of DB and SJ.
