    You come here, shooting the index finger on your keyboard with arrogance, full of self importance, as if I, and others, should be impressed. I'm not. More amused, which is why you have my interest.

    Have a nice day.

    PS Thank you for your sympathy, its cherished.
    First of all, I have no idea who Morgan is.

    Secondly, in answer to the simple question of what is your degree is in, everyone who has one always tells you. Without exception, because for most subjects it's hard work and people are proud of their achievement. No one who has one ever says it is not a question that they find relevant. In fact, to say that opens you up to ridicule and you would be considered to be odd and rude for not answering the question.
    the question agreed, not strictly relevant. Therefore, it is your perogative not to answer. Instead of simoly stating, well if you don't mind I don't see how that is relevant, that would be fine. Inatead of acting with maturit you wrote what you did. Yoy're obviosly not bothered in trying to being a lie to yoyr photo. .

It's the kind of thing that school boys say to each other or'adults' with a chip on their shoulder. Hey, but Jack the Ripper studies are well known for attracting men that are a bit on the rough side. Plenty of mates for you here. But I do apologise. From your photo you appeared to be an adult, so my mistake. An adult in appearance only then, who won't learn because he is too insecure.

I do feel sorry for you for posting as you did, you seem to have been left a bit behind by mature, sophisticated men. Never mind, we all know how proud you are to have written a book which you shove in everyone's face (so uncool) at the slightest opportunity, not to mention the photo of you looking like a bouncer. You can laugh at yourself though, can't you? You have acceptance from the big rough Ripper boys, especially the redneck ones, and that is something that you really crave. Ah, bless. It's about a killer in 1888 Neil, it's not academic work or a medical breakthrough.

    This link exactly proves my point! There were still anomalous instances around, but by 1888
    (which is the year in question) the 1875 act had been in existence for 13 years. Therefore, by then, the majority of spellings used the letter s. If the subject covered the first half of the 19th Century, then a case could be argued for using z.

    Most of the plaques on buildings by 1888, showed artisan, not artizan.

    I assume by reliability you are referring to the connection to your suspect, not the source itself.

    Exactly Rosella, thank you. From mentions in Dickens, to The Artisans and Labourers Dwelling Act 1875, the custom eventually became to spell it with an s. Not always, of course, there were still anomalous spellings with a z but they became rarer.

    'Jack the Ripper' was in common usage after the receipt of the Dear Boss letter, whilst this graffiti was reported on in 1891.

    So that is the time frame for this piece of writing.

    No, not really. If you read my post more carefully you will ascertain that I did not state ALL American words are spelt with a z, nor indeed, that no British words are spelt with a z. What is more important is The Artisans and Dwellings Act (can't remember the exact title, it was something like that) 18..... That is UK legislation. It was spelt with an s and in most literature. In addition, the word artisan was used to describe a socio economic category. So I think you'll find that you are wrong. It was not common to spell it with a z. In fact that would have been an anomaly.
