I can't believe the readership is quite so blase, so I'll try again. A new magazine with major articles is available FREE
at http://newindependentreview.com/

Articles by Jonathan Hainsworth, Tom Wescott. Dave Gates and Adam Went -- FREE!

Sorry Don,

I've been stuck on that 'Plausibility of Kosminski' thread. I just downloaded it and will be enjoying my weekend with a good read! Thanks Don!

Default ways of old folk

Hello Don. Not blase. Just takes old people a while to read through.

I'm already enjoying Hainsworth's article. Look forward to the rest--and, of course, subscribing to future issues.

Cheers.

There are some folks on here who will never be able to return to normal.

That supposes that at one time they were normal . . . which in some cases is dubious at best.

Congratulations Don, and thanks for all your hard work on the Review.

I particularly enjoyed Tom's article on Albert Bachert. I've long thought him an intriguing character (umm- Bachert, not Tom ) and it's very difficult to know what to make of him.

Best regards,
Archaic

Hi Archaic, thank you for that. What sparked the article was my observation that Bachert, like Le Grand, first appeared on the Ripper scene immediately after the double event, and also like Le Grand, promoted a suspect that seemed completely fictitious. While pondering Bachert's place in the Ripper mystery, I realized that he described a man very much like Fanny Mortimer's (who subsequently turned out to be Leon Goldstein), who carried a black bag. I knew that the chatty Mortimer was talking up what she saw on the pavement of Berner Street, and I wondered if maybe Bachert didn't hear it there. I already knew that he had a beef with the Berner Street boys, so I built the article around that. Even though I don't personally think Bachert killed anybody, I think if that article had been published in the mid-90's, when Ripperology was not jaded at all, he would have grown into a full-blown suspect by now.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Bunny,

I've long thought him an intriguing character (umm- Bachert, not Tom )

Tom is quite intriguing himself. Indeed, there is much mystery attached to him (a picture of Tom ranks just behind those of MJK in life and Aberline among Ripperologists) and that coupled with his seeming endless cranking out of articles has created a rumor that "Tom Wescott" is actually a consortium of three men, a woman and a wonder horse operating out of an abandoned Air Force base in Oklahoma.

Don.
