    Like Jeff, I am not qualified in this area, but my handwriting has always been cursive, and I have to agree with his assessments. The only similarity that I am seeing is in that they are all cursive. Beware the dreaded cognitive bias. Were a Bury advocate shown these samples as having been written by Druitt his conclusions may be entirely different.

    Cheers, George
    Yes true, all cursive, but as below there is something about Bury's handwriting that lends itself to comparisons with From Hell and Openshaw that definitely isn't the case with the other letters, such as Dear Boss. Doesn't prove he wrote them but interesting nonetheless. Jeff has picked out the fine differences but I remain unconvinced that someone couldn't alter these without too much difficulty, esp given Bury's background in writing.
