      I am not sure if anyone on this board believes all those three letters were written by the Whitechapel murderer.

      I’m not sure what you mean is the greatest problem, but I just told you that I believe them to be genuine. Perhaps you meant “anyone else on this board”?

        I too believe more likely than not Dearboss/saucy jack and from hell were from the ripper.

            I think "From Hell" was probably the Ripper, although I think it was written "in character", as it were, not so much as to try and fool anyone, as it was just that he was enjoying his public persona and wanted to play the part.

              Hi,
              I would say the killer did not have any mental state to write letters.even so cryptic ones,

                At the risk of straying somewhat from the subject, I think the Ripper had to be mentally composed, at least most of the time. He managed to entice his victims into going with him. What he was like immediately after a murder may well be another story.

                    I believe it’s extremely unlikely that the letters contain any kind of coded messages. But I look forward to your presentation.

                    I don’t believe From Hell was from JtR, but I do believe the Dear Boss, Saucy Jack and Moab and Midian letters were.
                    Hi Kattrup

                    Ive never been entirely convinced by the letters although I don’t entirely rule them out either but I’ve always felt that the Moab and Midian letter has a ring of genuineness about it. Whether it was from the ripper or not I get the impression that the writer “wasn't a well man” rather than simply a hoaxer.

                      I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree with that statement.

                        I think the real Ripper was too busy murdering and avoiding detection, than to be sitting at a table writing hoax letters. I reckon he got more of a thrill when he didn't get caught and that spurned him to keep going until he either did die, went to prison for something possibly unrelated to the killings, or perhaps a sanatorium or a mental hospital. There is every the possibility, the Ripper might not have been able to read and or write.

                          That might explain why it took so long before the letters started to arrive in any great numbers Fully five murders (Tabram, Nichols, Chapman, Stride, Eddowes) had been committed before "Dear Boss" was published in the papers; in fact, "Dear Boss" itself was only written at the end of September, and the "Saucy Jack" postcard on the same day as, or the day after, the Double Event. Wouldn't the real killer have started gloating sooner?
