true but still wrong. the main point is bringing up the GSG message at all. I mean after 8 years, someone is going to remember that?

remember the GSG was wiped of and got relatively little press.

The juwes/juws/juews misspellings were reported in the press, however. In contrast, apart from this letter, doesn't the spelling "jewes" only appear in internal police memos?

This report appeared in the Gloucester Journal 13th October 1888.

On Wednesday morning the following letter, bearing the London postmark and dated October 9th was received by the editor of The Western Mail Cardiff:-

" Dear Old Boss- What do you think of my little games here- ha!ha! Next Saturday I am going to give the St Mary street girls a turn. I shall be fairly on their track, you bet. Keep this back until I have done some work. Ha! ha! Shall down Friday- Yours, JACK THE RIPPER (trade mark)"
The St Mary street referred to is in Cardiff. No importance is attached to this communication.

This letter is hyphenated in the report, although obviously it would be better to see the original.

All the best.

On November 22nd 1888 The Citizen reported the following:

Singular Incident at Cardiff

Mr Edward Rowland, deaf and dumb missionary, residing at Pontypridd, writes: When I was passing Wyndham- crescent, Canton on Tuesday night, at seven o' clock, a young man with dark clothes and black moustache, came and walked a little way with me. I touched my ear to say that I was deaf, and he put his hands in his pockets for paper and pencil, and at a shop window he wrote with chalk on the sill this:- "Can you tell me the names of fallen women?" I was terrified and left him

All the best.

That’s a great question. I don’t know.

But the fact that the writer didn’t spell it with the u shows to me that he wasn’t writing the letter with press reports as I think a hoaxer would more than likely do.
